What roman numeral is in five?

The one about the square root of -1 is interesting. Thought that one was unsolvable, as two negative numbers, multiplied, cancelled out the negative quantity.

Re. Q2, LOL clynim you are looking too deep. The roots of this question are imaginary but a real answer might be something like..

"If you were electrical then you would be Jay, but that can't be right because your name is Scott - so you must be I"

Hope that's clear Smile


Hendrix sang "If six was nine", why could it have been to the Caligula?

I'm thinking of a letter of the Greek alphabet and a citrus fruit. What are they?

I'd always heard this phrased as, "If only you and dead people can read hexidecimal, how many people can read hexidecimal?"

Just how many words can be made out of just the 6 hex letters anyway? Shall we ADD it up? I already know that the Café is hexed! Smile

'Hexadecimal' is just a fancy term for 'numerology useful for casting spells'. Smile

There are 0x63 words! If you prefer decimal, then there are 99 words. You can find them listed here.

The longest, BTW, is fabaceae (a family of beans in some classifications).
