Closed maths question thread

I was admiring UTH's tenacity in arguing a maths point against a maths PHD and english grammar against an (english?) teacher.

Anyway, I wanted to help UTH out by providing a link to:

http://grammar.about.com/od/pq/g/proximityagreement.htm

so at least he had an equivalent link to support the grammar prong of his two pronged attack. good luck!

EDIT: also have some sympathy on the maths point.

personally, i would write:

ac/b, rather than a/bc

Thanks Phil.

I am amazed that people get called Troll when you don't agree with them.

For the record, DB is entirely wrong on the grammar post, it's embarrasing to have to argue that point with a so called Teacher. Mathnut argues her method is the only correct one, despite being unable to provide any proof of consensus other than circumstantial belief, despite me providing a link, to many links and great minds that disagree with her.

They will probably ban me for trolling soon.

Corrected that for you...Thanks for the lol. Hilarious. I might have believed you were it not for the erroneous conjugation.
