# If you were an equation what would you be? watch

1. And why..
2. y=tan x because at pi/2 and 3pi/2.... the function is undefined, same as some points in my life when i think, why the hell did i do that?
3. Haha, similar question like element? I'd be an equal sign "=", otherwise, it wouldn't be an equation
4. Having just done First Order Differential equations and Second Order Differential equations, I think I would opt to be a difficult SOD. (There is an opinion amongst my acquaintances that I already am.)

I would be something like:

3 (dsqy/dxsq) +2 (dy/dx) -y = 4sin5x

And why?

Well, why = Ae^-x + Be^(x/3) -(304/5876)sin5x-(40/5876)cos5x of course!

5. So what would u be, trigtrig?

I'd just be a simple PI r^2 because i am pretty simple
7. anything but a bessel function
8. 2x + y = 0

y meaning why
9. e^(iPi)+1=0

it links arguably the 5 most important numbers in maths together. i strive to be the leader of a group of the best people.
10. I would be:

E=mc^3

quite smart, but always making mistakes
11. delta E = delta m x c squared.

Arrghh you took my one!

In that case I would be

INT[infinity,-infinity] exp(-x^2) dx = rt(Pi)

Mathematics is very much like poetry ... what makes a good poem -- a great poem -- is that there is a large amount of thought expressed in very few words. In this sense a formula like

INT[infinity,-infinity] exp(-x^2) = rtPi

is a poem.

That is why.

(Lipman Bers).

Galois.
13. haha. should be 1+1 = 2. It should be greatest equation
14. v^2=u^2+2asyou gotta love that one
15. I'd be...

M=m+5-(5 log d)

Distance modulus equation (some random equation in Astronomy) - can find how bright a star is by guesing its brightness and knowing how far away it is - tis nice
16. Oh and I'd be that equation because it's one of the first equations I learnt in Astronomy GCSE, and I thought it was quite an interesting link between Maths and Astronomy, and at year 8 I thought base-10 logs were all intellectual etc etc
17. I'd be Q=It because it nearly says quit

pretty good one
I love all of the current equations pretty cute where peeps should wright A at the end
