It's a fundamental tool underlying all of advanced mathematics and science. Edited by TheFallibleFiend (10/06/11 06:04 PM) Top

It's not surprising that someone who has never studied the subject would reach that conclusion.Elementary math might as well be magic to the willfully ignorant.

 #40695 - 10/06/11 06:27 PM Re: ALGEBRA a discussion about ALGEBRA paul Megastar Registered: 03/21/06 Posts: 4136 well we will just wait to see what your doctors tell you.of course you said he wrote the wiki article maybe he just doesnt realize that you didnt want him to explain it so well.so that it could remain an unknown , so that you can continue to teach children the way that you think things are in reality.of course if he tells you something other than what you believe exist in reality you can always get a second opinion. _________________________ 3/4 inch of dust build up on the moon in 4.527 billion years,LOL and QM is fantasy science.

I don't teach kids the verbal stuff. I teach them the unambiguous mathematical notation - which you disagree with.Of course, if the good Doctor says I'm wrong, I'll admit it, but it's a minor issue.In the mean time, can you tell us what "kwh" means?

Paul,1000 watts * 50 hours = 50kwhThat is correct.1kw * 50 hours = 50kwhThat is ALSO correct.This is because 1kw means 1000 watts.Now, can you tell me what 'kwh' means? It's a simple question. Top

Let's ignore the rest and focus on what we agree about:1kw * 50 hours = 50kwhWhat does "kwh" mean here? You can say it. We already know. But you ought to say it - for your own good. Top

Megastar Registered: 08/20/10 Posts: 3570 Loc: Essex, UK Quote:2 bananas * 2 bananas = 4 bananas^2As a mathematical answer, I have no problem with this, but:(4 bananas^2)/4 = 1 banana^2, I think.Would I be spoiling an academic discussion if I were to ask what, in the real world (whatever that is), is the distinction between: a banana and a banana^2? _________________________ There never was nothing.

Megastar Registered: 08/20/10 Posts: 3570 Loc: Essex, UK Is it possible that a banana^2 is a banana * a banana? and if so, is that different from 2 bananas - in a non-mathematical, real-world sort of way. _________________________ There never was nothing.

Originally Posted By: Bill S.Would I be spoiling an academic discussion if I were to ask what, in the real world (whatever that is), is the distinction between: a banana and a banana^2?Part of the beauty of algebra - which is a foundation of all higher, analytic math (geometry, trig, analytic geometry, calculus, probability, statistics, differential equations, linear algebra, numerical analysis, etc.) - is that interim results don't need to have a physical interpretation.What's important is that what you have on both sides of an equal sign are actually equal - and that can't happen if the dimensions are inconsistent.
