Math Quiz

Since the thread using a more complicated equation doesn’t seem to be getting any traction, I figure it’s too hard. So, I thought we would simplify it:

2 + 3 x 4 = ?
Where “x” is the multiplicative operator.

HHM.

9. Well, probably not a genius, but

at least knowledgeable enough to get through fifth grade math. And you know what? Even with that vast amount of knowledge, I tend to refrain from criticising the mathematics of the Big Bang! Imagine that!

I also refrain from posting equations with the wrong answers and then insisting they are correct!

12. No, no, you have proved it with this post

You are a genius. You are being MUCH too modest.

13. ...You are being MUCH too modest...

That’s what everyone tells me about my modesty. But, of course, I am MUCH too modest to believe them.

10. It's not difficult at all for most of us

However, it seems to be beyond the comprehension of one of our genius (by his own declaration of his IQ) colleagues. Be sure and catch his criticisms of the mathematics of the Big Bang when you can.

7. You totally can't do math dude.

That's what you can't see.

I'd give you a pass if you hadn't mentioned a couple of times that your answers were absolutely correct.

It's exactly how you are with every other aspect of science.
You don't know it, you don't understand it and you act like you do.
Your math is the perfect example of everything else you do in regards to science and evolution.

11. Good one.

It would be better with -1 instead of -x because x isn't necessarily 1 and square root of -1 is imaginary (I).

I like it though. .

15. You are right.

That is what I meant to do but got sidetracked. I made the correction.
