You inspired me today. I thought of this, although it might not be too good.
What do you get when you convert 0011101100010000 to 3B10 ? Beats the hex out of me.

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who do not.

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said: There's no place like 127.0.0.1

1. In 1978, Raymond Smullyan wrote a book about logical puzzles. What is the name of this book?
2. I am the square root of 1. Who am i? 3. What would the value of 190 in hexadecimal be? 4. Twentynine is a prime example of what kind of number? 5. The reciprocal of the square root of two is half of what number? 6. How many consonants are in “one”? How many in “two”? And how many in “three”? 7. What do you do to the length of an edge of a cube to find its volume? 8. If we assume it be a perfect cylinder with a radius of z and a thickness of a, what is the formula for the volume of a pizza?

Yes, I am really asking. I came across a list of "common misconceptions" on wiki, and I saw this
" Contrary to a widespread perception, the real number 0.999...—where the decimal point is followed by an infinite sequence of nines—is exactly equal to 1.[269] They are two different ways of writing the same real number.[270] A 2009 study by Weller et al.[271] states that "Tall and Schwarzenberger (1978) asked first year university mathematics students whether 0.999... is equal to 1. The majority of the students thought that 0.999... is less than 1." Weller et al. go on to describe their own controlled experiment, performed "during the 2005 fall semester at a major research university in the southern United States. Preservice elementary and middle school teachers from all five sections of a sophomorelevel mathematics content course on number and operation participated in the study." The results are striking: "On the question of whether .999...=1, 72% of the control group and 83% of the experimental group expressed their view that .999... is not equal to 1.""

As I noted elsewhere, try subtracting 109999.....
You should get 0.00000...

If two objects are 12 inches apart. How long will it take for them to touch each other if every second the distance betweem them is halved?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000
