nothing burns my eyes more than seeing "math" where "maths" should be written.
or well, that`s what i like to do D:
maybe he should have used a reverse chain rule within that integral as well. perhaps add a few natural logs just to piss people off.
i think they shohuld have used integrals instead, that may have gone better. at least integrals can separate the 13 year old asians from the 16 year old asians.
1(900-24) - (900-100)X10(876) - (8000)876-8000?
Who know`s if its even a real ad? Could just be a joke..
not too tough if you knwo what all the symbols mean :)
I`d be willing to take your test for you, but I must bring up 2 issues :
A. I know very little about thermodynamics.B. If I could pass for you (in terms of looks), then you have some serious problems.
I like it.
Wow is your head the size of the earth? I mean with your ego?
Its a Swiss phone number. The periods are intentional. They are to break up the phone number, because any number put in front of a bracketed equation becomes part of the equation and the author of the problem didnt want it to become a single figure.
The answer therefore is 01.876.8000 (Local Number)

And I don`t know the first thing about computer programming.
* walk into drug store**oh look there is a poster for engineers, sweet i am one i want a job**fly home to london**good thing i took a number off that ad for engineers!**figure out problem and dial number*
1(876) x (800) = 710800
710800 x 10 = 7108000710-8000
"I wouldn`t join a company where that is the only requirement"
It`s a joke.
"That`s really easy"
"That last bit can be interpreted in several ways"
It`s a joke.
PS: The answer is 01-876-8000. Yes it can be interpreted in several ways, but the other options make no sense.
01-876-192000 is too long.01-681-92000 swaps between multiplier symbols mid equation. 700-8000 Inserts a pointless start 0 as a multiplier.
(And adding a 240 at the end breaks the pattern of dividers).
although it should be either 10x or *10 to make it more proper
I did that in less than a minute in my head. whoop-dee-friggin-do.
but to be honest.. the bulk of people dont know how to do simple bedmas. the whole double minus or double plus stuff doesnt click. i blame the schools
...Clever idea though.
and is that a minus in the middle or a .? this equation is fail
i wouldn`t even try, i fail at maths, completly.
It doesn`t filter out the good engineers from the bad ones, but it definitely stops all the math-impaired potential spammers.
(01.)876 - 8000
1) It`s just straight substitution, and it`s really, really easy.
2) The fact that you are all getting different (and wrong) answers means that it`s working at flunking out all the idiots.
3) You are all idiots.
4) Except for the 1 person who has posted before me with the correct answer.
PS i think the answer is 019 1125.
