For some reason the teacher didn't appreciate my response...



LMAO....


OK.. In the name of "sense of humor" and just plain fun... Let's actually solve the problem:


That's the Pitagorean Theorem... Simple Junior High Math... The Theorem states that H^2 = a^2 + b^2. (The Square of the Hypotenuse equals the Sum of the Squares of the sides in Triagle Rectangle)


In this case:


X^2 = a^2 + b^2 = 4^2 + 3^2 = 16 + 9 = 25   => X^2 = Square Root of 25 = 5



I learned this from the scarecrow years ago in "The Wizard of Oz".



Ha, Ha, Ha.... That's a good one Ross...!!!

I was lucky enough to have had an algebra teacher who still had a sense of humor and wit. I know he would smile, start talking to you about it, trick you into actually solving the problem, and leave you with the realization that it was actually fun. Weird, I know.



haha same here.

WOW... Nice topic.


I wish I could elaborate on it, but won't do so to prevent the upcoming upsetting antagonic responses of Math haters in the Site...   


The Parabola is the Geometric representation of an Equation of the Second Degree in Algebra. (Power of 2) More precise, it is a Conic Section, dating back to the times of the ancient Greek civiliazation. (Conic Sections = Parabola, Ellipse, Hyperbola. The Circle is only a special case of an Ellipse)


As someone with a Physics background I can tell you I use them often... In complex situations I won't even get into, but as a very simple sample: Ballistics and Lab work.


Remember, the path of a bullet is in fact a Parabola, not a straight line, as many tend to believe.


Some much more complex samples would be the NTSB, (path of a falling Plane in some circumstances) the ATF (Path of Fragmentation) among other Federal Agencies. Finally, it's use in the Military is almost everywhere: In every weapon, in every battlefield, Land, Air and Sea.



Wow ... will you be my college Algerba tutor?

    Why not...?  After all, I've always enjoyed to sharing any modest knowledge I may have...   


When -and if- allowed to do so...
