Re: Chuck Norris

Is this 'Love Chuck Norris Day'?

20. Chuck Norris can divide by zero.

You're a scientist, ChemG. If I divide 2 by 1, I get 2, right?
But if I divide 2 by 0, do I get infinity?

(I'm contemplating eating the remainder two muffins or letting the other half eat one of them, or just leavin' 'em alone, see?)

Re: Chuck Norris

You can't divide something by nothing because you can't multiply by nothing to get something. Chuck Norris can though.

"Division by zero is an operation for which you cannot find an answer, so it is disallowed. You can understand why if you think about how division and multiplication are related.
12 divided by 6 is 2 because
6 times 2 is 12

12 divided by 0 is x would mean that
0 times x = 12
But no value would work for x because 0 times any number is 0. So division by zero doesn't work."

Re: Chuck Norris

Somebody though 'Chuck Norris' was a command. He died in the attempt.

The universe is expanding because everything wants to get away from Chuck Norris.

God said 'let there be light!'. Chuck Norris said 'say please'.

Re: Chuck Norris

I always remember watching an episode of "Walker:Texas Ranger" with this classic conversation

Sidekick "Did you see that great Chuck Norris film last night?"
Chuck Norris "Chuck who?"

I think Terrys treatise was better.

I have no idea how the discussion came about mind...

IIRC both are correct, depending whether you're working with the set of rational integers or the set of "real" numbers.

The former, there is no solution for the reasons Chemgoddess expalined; the latter, then the "correct" answer is that the solution to y=1/x approaches infinity as x approaches zero (and, by extrapolation, the solution to y=-1/x approaches negative infinity)

Again hazy recollections but I'm pretty sure that this is represented by an exponentially expanding graph....my paint skillz are lousy but I'll try to scribble on out and attach it... (ok done - the axes are X and Y, and the blue line is the answer to y=1/x)

So it is mathematically correct to say that at the point where x = 0 on this graph, that y would be infinity - but it's not arithmetically correct.

My brain hurts. This is probably why I only got 7% in "Foundations Of Mathematics" at university

"Sorry dave, I did not realise that terry had already published."

Cut and paste the above into a new post, and we can call it quits.

Re: Chuck Norris

Ummm. . right okay. I posted that forever ago and obviously had no idea Terry had posted it somewhere else. I was only responding to a question asked and have found through experience with teaching that sometimes it's better to explain something so the average non-sciency/non-math person can understand it rather than give an exact precise treatise on the matter.

But sure, I'll apologize. Sorry, Dave. (He he he, you have no idea what I'm really sorry about.)

A few weeks ago I gave the proof that 0=1, using misplaced application of the associative law to an infinite series...I think Dave might be referring to the similar proof that 2=1 that relies on disguised algebraic division by zero, like this;

First we take a corollary that x and y are two numbers, neither of which are zero.

Then we state that x=y.

Multiply both sides by x, gives x^2=xy

Subtract y^2 from both sides, gives x^2-y^2=xy-y^2

We can then simplify this to (x-y)(x+y)=y(x-y)

Cancel the (x-y) from both sides to give you x+y=y

Given that at the beginning we stated that x=y, you can then clearly see that 2y=y

And simplifying for y proves unequivocally that 2=1



(if only they'd asked me crap like this on the exams... lol)

(the cheat is where you cancel out the (x-y) - since (x-y) = 0, and this process essentially therefore means "divide both sides by 0" which is illegal, all the rest of it is entirely spurious. Looks good, though )

Re: Chuck Norris

Ah, yes. I remember that. So it's not so much that Dave liked your treatise better it's just that he confused two different things.

Thats a far more feminine approach than the male habit of a global apology: Have the last word. Go-on, take it, youve earned it.

Back to our hero Chuck Norris.
As you might have noticed, in the morning as the sun rises, it's not that the day is getting warmer. Chuck Norris is getting cooler. (With sunglasses.)
