    Well, as a further maths student, I think I'm qualified to tell you that its actually 19.89 times harder.

    Haha, I tried to think of how I could make a maths joke, and it completely failed.

    I'm not a complete maths nerd it seems

    i wanted to tell her the same thing but thought I'd leave her to her ways of error! :rofl:
    Yea, maths jokes...oxymoron. Haha we had a board outside my maths class with jokes about curses being removed /hexagon etc

    I HAVE A MATHS JOKE FOR YOU!

    Sin Cos and Tan are sitting round a campfire. Cos and Sin are chatting away quite happily, but Tan seems withdrawn and quiet.

    Cos says to Tan: "C'mon and join us mate, why are you being so quiet?"
    Tan says: "Oh, I would guys, but I just can't integrate myself."

    :work: << This is me right now. ****. My. Life.

    But but but you can integrate tanx can't you...?

    Hmm not as good as the old classic though

    x, x^2 and e^x went to a party. x and x^2 were having a great time, but e^x sat alone. x and x^2 went to see if they could help:
    'hey, e^x, why don't you try and integrate?'
    e^x: 'I just don't think it would change anything'

    poor old e^x

    Nah you can't, not in Higher Math anyway... sinx = cosx and cosx=-sinx

    Also, I love that joke.

    Try this on for size:

    Once upon a time (1/t) pretty little Polly Nomial was strolling across a field of vectors when she came to the boundary of a singularly large matrix. Now Polly was convergent, and her mother had made it an absolute condition that she must never enter such an array without her brackets on. Polly, however, who had changed her variables that morning and was feeling particularly badly behaved, ignored this condition on the basis that it was insufficient and made her way in amongst the complex elements.

    Rows and columns closed in on her from all sides. Tangents approached her surface. She became tensor and tensor. Quite suddenly two branches of a hyperbola touched her at a single point. She oscillated violently, lost all sense of directrix, and went completely divergent. She tripped over a square root that was protruding from the erf and plunged headlong down a steep gradient. When she rounded off once more, she found herself inverted, apparently alone, in a non-Euclidean space.

    She was being watched, however. That smooth operator, Curly Pi, was lurking inner product. As his eyes devoured her curvilinear coordinates, a singular expression crossed his face. He wondered, "Was she still convergent?" He decided to integrate properly at once.

    Hearing a common fraction behind her, Polly rotated and saw Curly Pi approaching with his power series extrapolated. She could see at once by his degenerate conic and dissipative that he was bent on no good.

    "Arcsinh," she gasped.
    "Ho, ho," he said, "What a symmetric little asymptote you have. I can see your angles have lots of secs."
    "Oh sir," she protested, "Keep away from me. I haven't got my brackets on."
    "Calm yourself, my dear," said our suave operator, "your fears are purely imaginary."
    "I, I," she thought, "perhaps he's not normal but homologous."

    "What order are you?" the brute demanded.
    "Seventeen," replied Polly.
    Curly leered. "I suppose you've never been operated on."
    "Of course not," Polly replied quite properly, "I'm absolutely convergent."
    "Come, come," said Curly, "let's go to a decimal place I know and I'll take you to the limit."
    "Never," gasped Polly.

    "Abscissa," he swore, using the vilest oath he knew. His patience was gone. Coshing her over the coefficient with a log until she was powerless, Curly removed her discontinuities. He stared at her significant places, and began smoothing out her points of inflection. Poor Polly. The algorithmic method was now her only hope. She felt his digits tending to her asymptotic limit. Her convergence would soon be gone forever.

    There was no mercy, for Curly was a Heaviside operator. Curly's radius squared itself; Polly's loci quivered. He integrated by parts. He integrated by partial fractions. After he cofactored, he performed Runge-Kutta on her. The complex beast even went all the way around and did a contour integration. What an indignity - to be multiply connected on her first integration. Curly went on operating until he completely satisfied her hypothesis, then he exponentiated and became completely orthogonal.

    When Polly got home that night, her mother noticed that she was no longer piecewise continuous, but had been truncated in several places. But it was too late to differentiate now. As the months went by, Polly's denominator increased monotonically. Finally she went to l'Hôpital and generated a small but pathological function which left surds all over the place and drove Polly to deviation.

    The moral of our sad story is this: If you want to keep your expressions convergent, never allow them a single degree of freedom.

    You ladette Funsized! I adore Midnight Marauders, this song is probably my fave hip-hop track ever, dmz you need to listen to this, excellent vibe/musical hook/rapping from Q-tip.



    P.S Sorry for off-topicness.
    LOL ladette!
    :heart: "Hits the local bodega to woof down a hero, son is on a 'Midnight Run' like De Niro" Ah I used to know all the words to this..
    Q-tip is beyond a rapper, he's a lyricist :rolleyes:

    Haha never heard the classic. This one actually made me giggle :yy:
    Sorry Harbour Seal, not sure about highers, but your joke would have been funny before C4
