haha

But still funny :P

I actually opened up this piece of spam..... it was not interesting at all. Sir/Madam, I accuse you of untruths!

Hur hur, you don`t know what the internet is so I don`t have a life. I love it when people who need a compass and three personal aids to find their power button say things like that.

Ironic much? It`s old, but you saw it recently. Hmmm...

That was all win.

XD

I had the Jupiter Jack ad on the side, and I just hear Billy Mays voice start yelling. I thought I was going crazy.

I hate math....

Multiply it out. It`s just the binomial theorem.

Uh, sry, math nerd here.

I didnt actually solve the problem to see if he was right, but I can tell that isn`t completely made up. "K" is the counter, and the exclamation marks denote factorals. (e.g. 4! = 1*2*3*4. n! = 1*2*3*....*n-1*n.)

Gah, I hate series.

And I`d rather have my students get the right answer, proving that I actually taught them something, than have them make up some smart-ass crap like this.

Solving a math problem is being a smug prick? You have issues, Bob, seriously. My first incorrect attempt was at solving a math problem. Then I corrected it. That`s all.

The "k" is 1, then 2, then 3, then so forth until eventually you reach "n" which is given in the problem.

So, yeah, what`s-her-name wasn`t even close, but I was extremely close and just had to look up the formula, which this student would have been given in class.

I mean, who else around here cites their source when they look things up?

Really?

I even cited my source (wikipedia) which is an admission that I looked up the answer. It is not "stupidity" to look up a correct answer when one makes a mistake and then to correct the mistake. It is making a correction. What sort of insecure freak are you to make fun of someone for correcting a mistake?

Because I WILL catch you.

For the record, your initial response was this:

[quote]"the actual answer is a^n+b^n."

Wow, no it is not, you are not even close.

a^n + a^(n-1)b + a^(n-2)b^2 + ... + ab^(n-1) + b^n[/quote]

The question is asking for the binomial coefficient, which is n!/((k!)(n-k)!)"

DAMN LANDO> O.o i`m seeing that as made up, i don`t know where the hell you got the k and what the exclamation marks represent

SUPER NERD!!! *crashing applause*

a^n + n(a^(n-1)b) + n!/(2(n-2)!) (a^(n-2) b^2) ...n!/(k!(n-k)!) (a^(n-k)b^k)... n!/2(n-2)! (a^2 b^(n-2)) + n(a b^(n-1)) + b^n

The question is asking for the binomial coefficient, which is n!/((k!)(n-k)!)"

NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD

Wow, no it is not, you are not even close.

a^n + n(a^(n-1)b) + n!/(2(n-2)!) (a^(n-2) b^2) ...n!/(k!(n-k)!) (a^(n-k)b^k)... n!/2(n-2)! (a^2 b^(n-2)) + n(a b^(n-1)) + b^n

The question is asking for the binomial coefficient, which is n!/((k!)(n-k)!)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binomial_co...

What about this one?

a^n + n a^(n-1) b + n(n-1)/2! a^(n-2) b^2 + ... + b^n

n_n

MUAHAHAHAHA.

and @ fibericon... I have never seen it before cause I don`t have time to "surf" all the lame sites you do, thats why I come here.
