    I wouldn't care. No one likes a know-it-all (fortunately for me, I don't know much at all...!)

    How did you manage to get tan and sin confused? :facepalm2:

    tanx = sinx / cosx

    My dog even knows that. :run:

    Say you're in a maths class, and the teacher puts a formula on the board.

    You don't agree with part of the formula so stick your hand up and say "is that right? shouldn't that be a "tan" instead of a "sin"?" or something similar, but not really aggressively

    Now it turns out the formula on the board is correct, and the reason you aren't is to do with your understanding of the formula/what it describes. It is clear that you didn't fully understand the formula at first, and people can't be sure if you do understand it now.

    Would you just let it go and move on, or would you try to somehow show that you understood? If somebody else did the same, would you just let it go, or would you remember for a long time?
    Just let it go graciously. Far better than to go on and on about it, much to the annoyance of your peers. It's far better to accept it and let it go. Win with modesty, lose with dignity.

    Oh, I thought all of TSR was like SuperDog. :o:

    Srsly though, OP, let it go, man!

    We've all been wrong in our lives.

    I was wrong above when I said my dog is more intelligent than you, you're doing A-level Maths, you must be a smart lad. :woo:

    Not at all? you can't "appear" to be intelligent when you really aren't. And since I can't change my intelligence at 21, I'll probably just curse my genes and my family :top:

    This reminds me of kids who ask a question they already know the answer to, and then interject on the teacher to reel of some spurious fact that they reckon'll make em look clever.

    Um I would probably show I understood, because that means the teacher doesn't need to spend extra time explaining it to me that he could be using on different topics.
