I never did finish the Tokyo story, and there have been a LOT of new news since then. The Asahi festival, fireworks in Takefu, Summer English seminars, this weekend's Otaiko festival (assuming I can find a ride), all the stupid movies I've seen recently... so much to post about.Phoenixhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09262454312979032392noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6872984.post-1124366486141599432005-08-18T05:01:00.000-07:002005-08-18T05:01:00.000-07:00Ok, ok, enough maths Phoenix!

No one is rooting negative numbers. The problem isn't rooting a negative, it's assuming that a root results in a positive.<BR/><BR/>You fail it.Phoenixhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09262454312979032392noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6872984.post-1123792335414421812005-08-11T13:32:00.000-07:002005-08-11T13:32:00.000-07:00Not too hard, space cadets.

If A not equal to B then at step 5 one expression has to be negative and the square root of a negative is not allowed.blogboyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15216164064081332917noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6872984.post-1123397193413555402005-08-06T23:46:00.000-07:002005-08-06T23:46:00.000-07:00if i tried to read and understand that post.... i ...if i tried to read and understand that post.... i would get a headacheWilluhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02088093697393030786noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6872984.post-1123302160409502092005-08-05T21:22:00.000-07:002005-08-05T21:22:00.000-07:00"Isn't math fun?"Um.
