If a man’s wit be wandering, let him study the mathematics.
One day a farmer called up an engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician and asked them to fence of the largest possible area with the least amount of fence.
The engineer made the fence in a circle and proclaimed that he had the most efficient design.
The physicist made a long, straight line and proclaimed “We can assume the length is infinite…” and pointed out that fencing off half of the Earth was certainly a more efficient way to do it.
The Mathematician just laughed at them. He built a tiny fence around himself and said “I declare myself to be on the outside.”
A father left 17 Camels as an asset for his Three Sons.When the Father passed away, his sons opened up the Will.
The Will of the Father stated that the Eldest son should get Half of 17 camels,The Middle Son should be given 1/3rd of 17 Camels, Youngest Son should be given 1/9th of the 17 camels, As it is not possible to divide 17 into half or 17 by 3 or 17 by 9, the sons started to fight with each other. So, they decided to go to a wise man. What do you think the wise man say? Check it out here
Math is made of 50% formulae, 50% proofs and 50% imagination.
In a lively show, mathemagician Arthur Benjamin races a team of calculators to figure out 3-digit squares, solves another massive mental equation and guesses a few birthdays. How does he do it? He’ll tell you.
