Re: A math Problemhe_who_is_nobody wrote:[quoteX/(real numbers)(one's time)(one's memory)(y)(z).... the problem is that you are not suppose to multiply all that stuff the actual ecuación would be X / the smallest of all these stuff (real numbers)(one's time)(one's memory)(y)(z) so for example Time = enough time to write a number with 1,000 digits or less Memory = enough memory to type a number with 10,000 digits or less Y = enough Y to type a number with 100,000 digits or less Z = enough Y to type a number with 1,000,000 digits or less Given that time is the smallest of all, equation would be x/ 1,000 so in other words, it doesn't matter if you have enough memory to type 10,000 digits or infinite XYZ, given that you only have time to type 1,000 digits, 1,000 is your limit.

Just admit that you don't know any more about mathematics than you do about anything else. You're demonstrably wrong here, and the fact that you think quoting me in your signature as some sort of gotcha is extremely telling. That statement is a demonstrable fact, despite the fact that you haven't the wherewithal to grasp it. Last edited by hackenslash on Sat May 20, 2017 8:27 am, edited 1 time in total.

Wrong, every time something (human, computer, robot etc.) selects a number randomly, it always selects from a finite pool of options, because there is always something that limits the options to a finite number of options. .........I provided indisputable evidence for this and you haven't presented any evidence for the contrary No. I just typed this: this is the kind of semantic neat picking that moderators should try to prevent. it is still a fact that the set of numbers that can be typed in a computer is finite. and I already proved it.

Re: A math Problem
You proved nothing other than that you haven't the first fucking clue of what you're talking about.
And can the backseat moderation. They know what they're doing.

Re: A math Problemleroy wrote:he_who_is_nobody wrote:[quoteX/(real numbers)(one's time)(one's memory)(y)(z).... Beyond the fact that I do not know how one would determine which was the smallest, why would we only devide by the smallest variable? As I keep pointing out, we are determining the odds. I have never heard of just deviding by the smallest variable to determine the odds. Care to justify your reasoning? (_''_) (_.._)

Re: A math Problem
Dandan/Leroy, again we are talking about the odds, not specific cases. Beyond that, you changed the situation to something that would have limits (hamburgers) from something that you admitted is infinate (the real numbers). It is almost as if you know you are wrong. In addition, your "example" demonstrates that you do not know the first thing about calculating the odds. All the variables have to be accounted for to determine the odds. There is nothing that allows one to throwout variables without first justifying that action. However, I did make a mistake with my equation. The variables need to be added, not multiplied.
