Re: Take a penny leave a penny.

I leave a penny tray. There are now three pennies, a pen, Ralith the Third's missing sig, an empty Vodka bottle with a note saying "This is for Santa", and a wasted Norevan wearing a red hat. A needle nearby, empty of its contents, kept a Santa hat wearing Norevan asleep when xkcd follower...

Re: My write-up of the "Blue Eyes" solution (SPOILER A

I think that's taken care of by the wording "keeps a count of". What significance does the count have if they aren't aware of any changes? I think it's established that seeing the number of people *is* how the communicate when someone leaves. It is established to those who have been discu...

Re: My write-up of the "Blue Eyes" solution (SPOILER A

I've read and understand the question (and solution) and have tried to wade through this thread to see if this has been brought up before, but 26 is a lot of pages and I have little time tonight. The problem comes in the implications of the following part of the problem. Everyone can see everyone el...

Re: What is the error in this 2=1 "proof"?

First off: It is my understanding that if something is "infinitesimally small" then it does not exist. See any .(9)=1 proof for that. Secondly, I think this problem is being overthought. The limit as n squares in the divided square approaches infinity is still 2 in the same sense that the ...

Sort-of dynamic array

I have in mind a program which relies on creating an array of a constant size determined by user input. While my programming background is limited to a 100 level algorithms course and a 200 level introduction to C++, I've asked around a bit and am still unsure if it would be possible to something li...

Re: 1800s Era Defense/Assault Puzzle

I think you're all being too concerned with "holing up" and surviving forever. The object is to kill every last human being. Needless to say, simple civilians can be taken down rather easily with your rifle. Random bands of people can be taken with the tank. The main concern here is organi...

Math testing online

A while back for a calculus 2 class, I had to take an entrance exam to make sure I was fluent on all the prerequisite material. This makes sense in theory, but the entrance exam was taken from a website. This means that answers had to be typed into a simple input box (the kind you use to enter your ...

xkcd also means:

I'm suprised this hasnt been shown yet.

Code: Select all

let x = 0.999999...

 10x = 9.9999999...
 - x  - .9999999...
 ------------------
  9x = 9.0000000...

x = 1

if x = 0.9999...
and x = 1
then 0.9999... = 1
