Math guessing game.

  1. Feb 6, 2005 #1
    Decimal 5 = 50 percent.
    50 percercent is written 50/50, fifty/fifty.

    Are you closer to 50 percent or one ?

    I say one. But I may be wrong. What do you think ?

    What are the implications of your answer ?

    Fifty-fifty does not mean the fraction 50/50. The value of that fraction is 1. Fifty-fifty means you take half (50%) and I'll take half. Even steven (which does not refer to Steven Hawking).

    "50/50"

    There is the symmetry of 1) Ratio, 2)Irrational.

    If symmetry does exist in the irrational, the numerator is also the denominator.

    I have to go. But think on that.

    The idea is. Symmetry is 1.) Rational. 2.) Irrational.

    Since this is true. 50/50, can be represented by this graphic.

    O/O

    This is either 1.) Rational. Or 2.) Irrational. Or 3.) Both Irrational + Rational.

    If it is both Rational + Irrational. It can be both, or either.

    I say, it is the rational number 1.

    This is all a joke, right?

    The fact of the matter is the irrational number pi, can be symmetric through rational numbers.

    1=1

    Edit.

    [Rational 50/50 = Irrational 50/50] = Real Numbers; 1

    Sorry but you need to stop and realise you do not have any rigorous understanding of mathematics and you need to sit down and read a lot if you want.

    The number system we use has been carefully constructed over a long period of time, we don't just take philosophical ideas randomly and turn them in to mathematics with no real idea of what they mean.

    I can't understand what you're saying.

    Could you please try again, it's not very clear right now.

    I'm trying not to influence mankind. But...I like to talk. So, I'll reiterate myself.

    # 1.) Symmetry functions with 1.

    edit
    # 2.) The irrational number 1 pi / The irrational number 1 pi = 1 / 1

    Please explain what that means, I have no idea what the first means and I am going to guess in the second you are trying to write:

    [tex]\frac{1*\pi}{1*\pi} = \frac{1}{1}[/tex]

    Which makes sense as:

    [tex]\frac{1}{1} = 1 \quad \text{and} \quad 1*a=a[/tex]

    and:

    [tex]\frac{a}{a} = 1 \quad \forall a \in \mathbb{R} \backslash \{ 0 \}[/tex]

    I'm showing a way to classify real numbers.

    1 Pi / 1 Pi = 1 / 1

    OR.

    O / O = 1 / 1
    Where O Is the description of Pi.

    Are you a poli-sci major or something?
     
  17. Feb 20, 2005 #16
    Strange... Are you aware of you cannot express Pi in the form [itex]\frac {a}{b}[/itex]. That is called irrational. Or are you implifing someting else?
     
  18. Feb 20, 2005 #17
    If Pi cannot be symmetrically expressed within a fraction, how can pi(edit.The irrational number pi) exist within a fraction ?

    And then, if pi can be expressed within a fraction, can't that fraction equal 1.

    And NO. I am no polical Scientist.

    Pi must (edit. Symmetrically)exist within a fraction, TO EQUAL PI.

    That fraction can equal 1. The irrational number pi / The irrational number pi; 1 / 1.

    I'm patiently waiting for somebody to prove me wrong. I don't care if I'm wrong. So, go on. Go and prove me wrong. :shy:

    Sorry, but I don't understand this... Why 50% = 50/50? This is just terribly wrong, isn't it??
    Viet Dao,
