Infinite possibilities

  1. Jan 20, 2005 #1
    this one's easy and totally visual once you know the answer...

    what is 90 degrees from infinity?

    highlight to read (its in LemonChiffon)

    +/- infinity*i in complex space.

    while that may be entirely correct, and to some, easy, that's not something I can even understand. No, it's much easier than that. ;)

    Don't overthink this one, the answer smaller than you think

    If you draw a coordinate axis, like Y vs X but label the axis as "i" for y, and "1" for x, then you have the complex plane. a 90 degree rotation from positive infinity would be my previous answer.

    Im stil ltrying to think of what you're answer is... I know I should approach it as a riddle rather than a math problem :(

    Relax, the answer is under 10 ;)


    and yeah, that's a huge hint

    I found one answer

    90 degrees=90°=\frac{\pi}{2} radians (I hope u see where the infinite comes from)...

    And is roughly 1.57<10.

    Daniel.

    Very curious for another answer...

    How about

    [tex] \arctan \infty =90deg [/tex]

    You win. The answer is 8. Rotate 8 90 degrees right or left and you have

    [tex] \infty [/tex]

    He didnt win!!! He was just doing math!!!
    I see what you mean though.

    What did the number 0 say to the number 8?

    :Nice belt!: :rofl:
