    Can anyone help me figure this out?




    I don't quite get what math function they are using to solve this.

    thats pretty much how i interpreted every math question on the SATs. Word problems are not my forte.

    i did much better on the english portion, though, you wouldnt know it from my posting

    more like the GRE....the "math" section on that exam goes entirely off the deep end and is so far outside any practical use of math, it's pretty much worthless.

    "deficit"??? Please don't use that word as though we have a chance to ever get above water again. The fact that it justs keeps getting bigger is all the proof you'll ever need.

    He just solved the 26 vs 29er debate By formulation-o-gistiks he may have well unknowingly solved the clip less vs flat debate as well!

    Here's some practical math for those interested:
    If it takes two days for two trolls to throw up two threads that cause too much trouble to worry, to whom should we direct complaints regarding too much use of words that sound like /tu/?

    That's funny, I thought the GRE math section was too easy. Anytime you need to ace the damned thing to be in the running against your peers...

    BTW, Euler's Formula is part of solving the problem the dude in the pic is so freaked out about...

    What is you are trying to figure out?

    Answer is already given, right there.

    the first time I took it, it wasn't anything extraordinary. when I took it again 5yrs later, it was markedly different and contained obscure logic problems more than actual math problems.

    I did better on the verbal, torched the written portion, and slayed the biology subject test, though.

    I took GRE back in the day when they had three sections (and everything on paper). Also had to take GRE Physics on the same day.

    It was my birthday and all my buddies had been at my place getting drunk with my dad and his friends.

    That was very aggravating to know. Managed to get perfect scores on analytical and math, but my brains had already been numbed down quite a bit by my undergraduate experience, so it did not hurt too much.

    I think if I am to take those tests now, I would not be admitted to my daughter's elementary school..

    I thought they were just symbolic problems. I tend to bring out the calculator a little later than most, so they were somewhat playing to my approach.

    In Physics test pretty much all problems could be solved by checking dimensions of the multiple-choice answers. It cracked me up when people later complained about trying to actually solve or derive stuff on the fly. I felt like I have cheated my way into grad school.

    It's because the hats are a direct transmogrification of pancake meat when mixed with ice to make cold fusion for dipping apple slices.
