I wonder how big a 1000ft apartment would be. Did you ever see anyone else anywhere use feet as a unit of area? Ever? I know you won't be able to show me any examples, but can you even remember any?Quote:in your mind 5ft^2 is only 5 * ft^2Yes! You just wrote the exact same thing. Just as 3x = 3*x. There is an implied multiplication between the 5 and the ft.Paul, there's no way you can do any calculations with physical quantities unless you use some consistent way to operate on them. The easiest is the common convention that nearly everybody has used for hundreds of years.Treat units like variablesYou already treat numbers like variables. You can already say 3*3=3^2 the same way as x*x=x^2. Now just add m*m=m^2. That's really all it is. Just doing that will instantly make all these calculations work exactly the way me and TFF say. You can test it on anything and it will always work exactly the same. Even on the 5x5 grid it will work exactly as MIT says.Your way leads to measuring area in ft. Top

Paul, the simplest thing in this thread is you. Your ignorance does not translate into fact. You're wrong because you are completely and utterly ignorant. My kids knew more math than you than when they were in 5th or 6th grade. The kids I tutor know more math than you - before I tutor them. Most of them have the good sense to realize they don't understand. You just keep repeating stupid crap over and over. Top

The meaning of "feet squared" or "square feet" is nothing but a human-invented language convention. That means whatever everybody else does is automatically right. Simply because it's a convention. Both terms mean the same thing because just about everybody uses them to mean the same thing. Obviously neither term means anything for non-English speakers. Top

"2bananas * 2bananas = 4bananas^2 (((( FOUR BANANAS SQUARED )))"yes. THE SAME THING THAT EVERY MATHEMATICIAN, ENGINEER, SCIENTIST, AND MATH TEACHER TEACHER ON THE ENTIRE PLANET KNOWS - AS WELL AS EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER ACTUALLY STUDIED MATHEMATICS.You're not arguing over something hard. This is a trivial result. No wonder you can't get funding for your projects. Anyone who spends two minutes listening to your ignorant drivel would be wondering what kind of idiot factory produces an imbecile like you.Meanwhile, I take students who are getting Ds and Fs and produce from them students who get As and Bs. And guess what? I also get *MY* research funded. You know why? Because unlike you I actually try to understand it instead of insisting that the first stupid thing that comes out of my head is The Truth. Top

I also get *MY* research funded.that only shows that the people who fund your research have flaws like you do.if they can understand that the below is true.2bananas * 2bananas = 4bananas^2 ((( FOUR BANANAS SQUARED )))then they have flawed logic also.which says that we live in a world that uses flawed logic to determine who gets funding for their research.I dont have flawed logic so that is why I dont get funding.If logic tells me that I can get more energy out than I put into something then I trust my logic and I apply for funding.if those who fund research have flawed logic then they would simply say that my idea isnt logical to them.and I wouldnt get funding. _________________________ 3/4 inch of dust build up on the moon in 4.527 billion years,LOL and QM is fantasy science.

The area of a figure is the number of squares required to cover it completely, like tiles on a floor.Area of a square = side times side. Since each side of a square is the same, it can simply be the length of one side squared.If a square has one side of 4 inches, the area would be 4 inches times 4 inches, or 16 square inches. (Square inches can also be written in2.) not inches SQUARED SQUARED is not the same as SQUAREwhen you wrote ((( four bananas SQUARED )))you were WRONG.and there is no volume of insult or trickery that can force that wrong to be a right. _________________________ 3/4 inch of dust build up on the moon in 4.527 billion years,LOL and QM is fantasy science.

Or it could be that you don't get funding, because your own logic is flawed and you are mathematically incompetent and too egotistical to admit you're uneducated. Top

You're not even trying to understand. It's no wonder you won't take an algebra class or consult a book, before mangling mathematics.It is not the same thing. The feet ARE the 'anythings.'2ft * 2ft = 4 ft^2In this case the square only applies to the ft, not the 4.2ft * 2ft is the same as2*ft * 2*ft (because 2ft MEANS 2*ft)We can re-arrange using the commutative property2*2 * ft*ft = 2^2 * ft^2 = 4 * ft^2 = 4ft^2Almost every HS student learns this by 8th grade. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that you were either home-schooled or didn't do very well in your math classes.You just make stuff up, because it makes sense to you and then claim that it's logical - because1. You're too lazy to look it up,2. You don't know what "logic" is and confuse it with any stupid idea that comes into your head, and3. You are too intellectually dishonest to admit you don't understand.What do you know the guys who understand math get the problem right and the guy who doesn't know his head from his ass continues to make a fool of himself.
