    I Blending numbers

    i have not clue if this is the right place to ask if i had 2 numbers and i wanted to blend between them but instead of a linear way it was in an inverse square way.. how would that math go? so if i had A=1 and B=9 and wanted the number at 0.5 it would be 4.. or if i wanted the number at 0.85 it...

    A Choices of Axiomatic and Number Systems / Sets and Alternatives

    I know that the number systems we use are typically constructed from axiomatic set theory, and overall our choices along the way seam to have been largely informed by practical consideration (e.g. to resolve ambiguities, or do away with limitations). Today I randomly started to think deeper...

    Fast car

    A car goes from repose (0 mph) to 50 mph in, say, 30 seconds. Math tells us that there is an infinite amount of numbers between 0 and 50 (or between any two other numbers). Therefore, isn't it "obvious" or "intuitive" that it would take a car an infinite amount of time to go from 0 mph to 50...
