    mmm. he could have been more amazing apparently, had his parents nurtured his intellect more at a younger age (perhaps another Terence Tao he could have been...).

    ah cool. Magdalene apparently has a bit of a reputation for a lot of :hump: lol.

    S*mba is currently a first year mathematician at trinity college, cambridge. i believe he was GCSE maths standard by age 9 (that could be slightly wrong) and was doing lots of A-level maths around the age of 13. he took all 18 of the available maths modules for A-level, and got the highest score across all 18 in the entire country. he sat STEP II and III in year 12, and scored S and 1 respectively. he was in the IMO squad - a group of the best 8-10 under 18 mathematicians in the country. he has taught himself most of the first year cambridge maths stuff, and i assume he's started on plenty of 2nd year stuff.

    Terence Tao is inhuman. He was in the top 50 or so under 18 mathematicians by the age of 13. he started doing IMO (international maths olympiad) by the age of 10 i think - most IMO contestants start around 15/16. and IMO contestants are themselves ridiculously amazing. and i mean ******* amazing! he went to university to study maths at age 14. he got his masters at 17. he got his PhD with a scholarship at 20. He won the MacArthur Felllowship, known as the Genius Award. He just received a Fields Medal - like the nobel prize of mathematics, but actually much harder to get, as you have to be younger than 40 and it is awarded every 4 years. he is now known as the Mozart of Mathematics apparently.

    but i would never want to be like T Tao. it is literally inhuman.

    be honest though, would you ever want to be T Tao? do you think he has/had any social life ever?

    S*m*ba is more comparable. but i don't know if i wanted to actually be him...

    nature, in my opinion, did the trick for Tao and S*m*ba. they are both naturally genii it would appear...

    yeah lol

    just a quick question..

    im finding the sum of consective numbers 37-150 inclusive

    for finding the number of terms..do I take away 150-37=113 and add 1=114 to include 37? I don't add two to include 150 do I?!

    *edit..just realised how stupid that sounds...sorry I get it now :tongue:

    note that it's an arithmetic series: first term 37, common difference 1. you need to find the number of terms first.

    hint - open after trying
    use  u_n = a+(n-1)d , knowing all apart from n


    then sub in 'n', 'a' and 'd' into your formula for the sum of an arithmetic series.

    hint - open after trying
     S_n = \frac{n}{2} (2a + (n-1)d)


    edit. just noticed your edit :>.<:
