A Fun Solution That We Came Up With In Grade 12 Calculus

  1. Sep 30, 2009 #1
    We were in Calculus class, and the problem sin(x)/n was left on the board from the last class. The teacher meant to put an x in the denominator I guess. We solved it like so:

    sin(x)/n

    The n terms cancel out

    sin(x)/n = six = 6

    Whatddya think?

    i have no idea. the joke is at least as old as the early 90s. i just googled 'til i found a pic of it.

    i'm guessing this was a local thing done by a few students somewhere. if you wanted a one-off, you might could make a graphic and upload to one of those t-shirt sites (cafepress maybe?).
