i think.

haha.

faaaaaaaaaaaail.

phail.

fayel.

oh dear.

PS i think the answer is 019 1125.

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.

brilliant.

I can do this and I`m only in algebra 2!

(01.)876 - 8000

01-546-4760

It doesn`t filter out the good engineers from the bad ones, but it definitely stops all the math-impaired potential spammers.

(theres no period separating the (y^2-10^2) and the x10 like there is for the other parts of the number)

otherwise it would be 01-876-8000

i wouldn`t even try, i fail at maths, completly.

and is that a minus in the middle or a .? this equation is fail

3*

...Clever idea though.

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

AM I A PROGRAMER

I did that in less than a minute in my head. whoop-dee-friggin-do.

although it should be either 10x or *10 to make it more proper

Is this not an American phone number, British maybe?

01.876.8000.240

Saw the x as a multiplication symbol... Sorry, its American. Easy problem.

"I wouldn`t join a company where that is the only requirement"

It`s a joke.

"That`s really easy"

It`s a joke.

"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).

or

01 876 800 192000 hmm

900-24= 876

900-100=800

1(876) x (800) =

710800

710800 x 10 = 7108000

710-8000

* 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*

And I don`t know the first thing about computer programming.

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)

not hard to work out at all, 01.876.8000 not a complicated problem.

Wow is your head the size of the earth? I mean with your ego?

I like it.

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.

not too tough if you knwo what all the symbols mean :)

y = 30

01.(y^2-x).(y^2-10^2)x10

01.(30^2-24).(30^2-10^2)x10

01.(900-24).(900-100)x10

01.(876).(800)x10

01.876.8000

ja?

really creative. i like it

lol

Calculus FTW!

Who know`s if its even a real ad? Could just be a joke..

Cute idea though.

1(900-24) - (900-100)X10

(876) - (8000)

876-8000?

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.

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.

01.876.8000

or well, that`s what i like to do D:

01.876.8000

nothing burns my eyes more than seeing "math" where "maths" should be written.
