I really don't know what this is... Hopefully funny anyway.

Halfway through the week and we continue with one more question:
Solve for a numerical value of 'Wrong' if 'Right' = 3 :
'Wrong' squared minus 4 'Rights' is equal to zero.

Two 'Rights' are not equal to 'Wrong'

Right, 4 rights = 12. Square root of twelve is 2 root 3 (Or 3.464101615).
So right = 2 root 3 or 3.464101615.

(I think)

(Root stands for the square root symbol)

EDIT: Thank god for calculators, making all of this possible.

Comic is good btw. ^^

Ooh... Blaze is very close, but there is one thing you're forgetting:


Remember the golden rule about square rooting numbers...

BlazeTF, September 25th, 2008, 3:35 pm

Hmm, I'm so close?
I can't figure this out... xD

SuperBiasedMan, September 25th, 2008, 3:38 pm

It's one tiny mistake that always gets and annoys me about maths, especially when dealing with squares.
You are close enough that if no-one gets it I'll give you the points.

BlazeTF, September 26th, 2008, 1:14 am

Ah ok. If no-one gets it, will you tell us the actual answer too?

Alright since no-one got the exact right answer I'll tone down the pedantry, giving Blaze 10 points...
Here's the answer with workings:
4 'Rights' are equal to 12.
So that means 'Wrong' squared is equal to 12.
The square root of which is 2 by root 3 OR negative 2 root 3.
Since 2 'Rights' are not eqaul to 'Wrong',
then -2 'Rights' must be equal to 'Wrong'.

It's very pointlessly complex and confusing, so you can see why I accepeted Blaze's answer. Hopefully I'll have a less knowledge based and more lateral logic question for the next comic.

The table is included. So I now am in the lead with 25 points!

BlazeTF: 25
BowserKnight: 20
Phoenix of Chaos: 15
youdont12know: 10
All othr readers: 0

Actually, I just checked and BK is on 25, meaning the current scores are:

BowserKnight and BlazeTF: 25
Phoenix of Chaos: 15
youdont12know: 10
All othr readers: 0

BlazeTF, September 26th, 2008, 4:32 pm

Ah. I was going with Phoenix of Chaos' table.

Phoenix of Chaos, September 27th, 2008, 2:29 am

My bad. I thought I was accurate

SuperBiasedMan, September 27th, 2008, 5:43 am

No problem, you're doing it out of your own initiative so it's...
Oh wait, I should be updating...
*dashes off*
