Overnight Open Thread Edition (6-9-2015) - Yes There Will Be Math Midterm Edition

Quote of the Day I

Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn't have to produce anything! You've never been out of college! You don't know what it's like out there! I've worked in the private sector. They expect results.

-- Dr. Raymond Stantz

Quote of the Day II - Semi-Retired President Dithers Over ISIS Edition

A military official also took issue with Obama's claim that he was waiting for options from the Pentagon. "What the f- was that? We have given him lots of options, he just hasn't acted on them," the official told Fox News.

Okay it's that time of year so everyone now clear off your ONT desks and take out a no.2 pencil. Remember that none of the problems on this test require any advanced math knowledge. So you've got that going for you.

Everyone ready? Okay you may break the seal on the test booklet.............now.

Problem #1

Twenty years ago, this puzzle appeared on a test administered to top-tier math students from 16 countries around the world. Only 10% of test takers got it right. In the U.S., only 4% managed to provide a correct response.

mathprob1

If you're stumped, here's a hint: Solve the case of a single revolution of the string first. Also think scissors. 

Problem #2

You need to fill in the gaps with the digits from 1 to 9 so that the equation makes sense, following the order of operations - multiply first, then division, addition and subtraction last.

According to the VN Express, it was set as a problem for third graders in the town of Bao Loc in the Vietnamese highlands.

That's eight year olds!

There is no complicated maths involved, only basic arithmetic.

And note that ':' is the symbol they use for division.

mathpriob23

Need a hint: Convert the tiles to an equation, remember the order of operations, MDAS.

When you're finished, turn in your answer sheet and join the rest of us in the tea room.

How You Can Help Mark in Steyn vs. Mann

Buy one of his gift certificates.

Contrary to belief in some quarters, I'm not without legal representation - although I do reserve the right to conduct the deposition of Mann myself, if only because it will make for a better scene in the movie. Rather, my legal team is headed by Dan Kornstein, the driving force behind the most important free-speech legislation this century. We're preparing for the end of this ridiculous sideshow about anti-SLAPP interlocutory-appeal mumbo-jumbo, at which point we'll press for a trial as soon as possible, and Michael E Mann can defend his hockey stick on the witness stand.

I won't deny that there aren't days when I wish I didn't have my head in some interminable brief and could be working on my next book, or album, or on the lam holed up in a Swiss clinic awaiting the removal of my facial-construction bandages and the delivery of my new Azerbaijani passport. But the moment passes, and I can assure you I'll see this thing through - and I'll win.

Orson Wells Moonlighted as a....Lesbian Porn Editor?

Welles, wrote Karp, "wound up editing a hard-core lesbian shower scene that he couldn't resist cutting in Wellesian fashion with low camera angles and other trademark flair."

...Welles reciprocated by working without credit on one of Graver's hard-core films, 3 A.M. Fuming that Graver was busy editing it instead of working on his projects, Welles volunteered to cut a sequence to speed the film's completion. The star of 3 A.M., Georgina Spelvin, proudly told me that Welles was responsible for the dynamic editing of her masturbation scene in a shower...

47 Oh, come on you guys. The string goes around the cylinder 4 times, meaning you can split it into four segments of equal length. Each of those segments can be "cut" and "flattened" into a square, with length 4cm and width 3cm. The string goes diagonally across four of these squares, and completing the triangle gives 5cm for the diagonal across those squares.

4x5=20.

68 Isn't it just 4 times 4cm = 16 cm?

The drawing is deceptive as it shows space in between each coil, so technically you would have to add in that extra space, but the description of the problem does not indicate that there is any space between the wrappings ... if they are all tightly wound together, the space between them is minimal.

71 Each revolution around the rod creates a right triangle where:

a: circumference of rod (4)
b: 1/4 of rod (12/4) = 3
c: string

a^2 + b^2 = c^2
(4*4) + (3*3) = c^2
16 + 9 = c^2
C^2 = 25
c = 5

Adolf Hitler: A National Socialist*, who once uttered the immortal words; "We are socialists. We are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, its unseemly evaluation of the human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”

97 Correct answer is 20. Was trying to refresh on setting up integrals until I realize you can "unroll" the rod.

Start with 0 revolution (12, duh) and 1 revolution (?), and that will show how to determine the 4 revolution answer.

I know I can solve the 2nd math problem with brute force ... but I should finish up this work ...

100 One equation, nine variables - it's guess which goes where, folks, and if the guess fails, try, try, try again!

Although if one doesn't multiply the two fractions out, then one can add two more equations in there since both fractions have to be integers (or fractions that subtract out to an integer result, 76 in this case). This will simplify things quite a bit...

Posted by: eman at June 09, 2015 10:34 PM (MQEz6)


A rod is a cylinder.

Take a newspaper - rectangle, right?
Pull a piece of string from one corner to the opposite corner. Makes a triangle.

Now roll the newspaper so that you have a cylinder with the edges just touching - that's what it looks like when you wrap the string around the rod 1 time.

It gets a little trickier when you wrap the string around 4 times ... but if you can visualize it 1 time, it makes sense why 4 times is the same sort of thing. (if your brain can do that sort of 3d imaging)

Posted by: chemjeff at June 09, 2015 10:42 PM (2XMpf)

***
There are two ways,,at least, to revenue in this area. First, like Ace, is to have the metrics to prove the number of unique(important word) clicks for the site involved. The higher that number, the more that can be charged for ads by Ops like Ace. Ther3 are a great deal more sub classifications that I am missing, but that is the just.

Group #2 is the sites that pay to get clicks, on a per click basis. These are usually 2nd tied Ecommerce sites. They pay for every click, and competition is brutal.

Same idea as glossy ads in a magazine. Advertisers pay because your website gets a lot of eyeballs and showing the ad develops mindshare and branding and MARKETSPEAK.

Most websites don't make that much from it ... but a big website with hundreds of thousands of readers is worth some change.

234 I am sure there is deeper meaning here...

the other day I posted this from Chelsea Clinton's interview with Elle magazine (ran online just about 2 months ago):

Marc and I are like, "What did we do before we were parents?" My whole life is reoriented around my daughter in the most blessed sense. I now understand - this is something else that Marc and I talk about all the time - all of the enthusiastic, bombastically spectacular, wonderful things people say about their children, because we also feel and think all those things about Charlotte - that she is just the most remarkable little bubbly, perfect, chunky monkey creature ever.

and then, James Joyce style, I had an epiphany and thought of this (found on google):

"Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey flavor is banana ice cream with fudge chunks & walnuts."

there's GOTTA be some deeper meaning here. Sorry, I am tired and in deep thought about whether that two year old chicken in the freezer is still edible. (Or, to paraphrase, as Felix said to Oscar, "For a coyote it's edible")

The Leftist will always back the abhorrent. Their whole thought process starts with the idea that there's no truth. If there's no truth, there can't be any cause and effect, and outcomes are completely unmoored from input. To them, everything is random. Things we see as successful, they see as cheating at the roulette wheel of life because they win again and again over centuries and millenia.

Therefore they back the barbarian over the civilized man, call the talentless hack an artist, and push every kind of destructive perversity over morality and decency. They believe that all those things have been denied their due in a random universe, thus the game has been rigged, and they need to fight "the system" to correct it.

What they don't realize is that their ideologiacal foundation "nothing is true" is self-refuting.

251 On the rod...

(Phhhttt... he said "rod".)

Each wrap of the string uses up 3 cm of the rod (12/4).

The rod is 4 cm around, so each wrap of the string covers the diagonal of a 3x4 cm area. (Imagine the rod as a cardboard tube and cut it apart.)

Pitha...

Patho....

Pythagerian?

The diagonal thingy says x squared plus y squared equals z squared.

Thus, each wrap of the string is the square root of 9 plus 16 or 25. Square root is 5.

4 wraps x 5 cm = 20 cm total.

281 So my clothes dryer wouldn't work tonight so I started troubleshooting. Checked the CB. It wasn't tripped but I cycled it anyway. Next I checked voltage at the outlet. Checks good. Checked the door switch. Still makes a clicking sound so I'm thinking that isn't it. I note the light isn't on in the dryer with the door open. Hmm it is 11 years old maybe the bulb is burned out but that would be mighty coincidental. I was thinking it was gonna be a thermal fuse but now I'm not sure. I pull the dryer away from the wall, unplug it and open the power plug cover plate and then I find the problem. The white wire on the power cord had burned completely apart. Other wires showed damage as well. I toyed with the idea of buying a new power cord and replacing damaged wires but ultimately went with a new dryer.

359 There is an even easier more eloquent solution to the tube question, than the one they give us. It's so simple that it makes the official answer look stupid. It is a children's answer. And it's right.

They say, unroll the tube and appreciate the ultra unique right triangles that form in sequence, most famous of all, 3/4/5 ratio. Then add them up.

Heh.

But here's the thing, they already told you the circumference is 4cm, and there are 4 loops. So 4X4 is 16. But wait! The string goes the length of the tube too and they tell you that number too, 4 cm, so, 16+4=20 taa daa. No maths required actually, except add them. Just pay attention to what they tell you and LOOK at the picture.

Had they wound it all up in one place then the answer would be 16.

They overthought the whole thing.

If helium wants to bond with other atoms, who are we to say no? Provided that the other atoms give affirmative consent.

Overkill. There are only two orthogonal components to the helix: one transverse to the cylinder's axis (circumference), and one longitudinal to it, so it's legit to calculate them separately and then simply add them.

394 ight be time for all police departments in all the US to pack it in.
Remember his desire for a National Police force that would have the same budget as the military.


Add to this the mentality of these people that black people shouldn't be arrested at a higher rate than white people, ignoring the fact that black people commit crime at a much higher rate. The result of the National Police Force will be even more out of control crime.

Obama's friend Holder developed this idea that in schools, blacks were being suspended at too high a rate. Solution: intimidate schools so that they stop suspending out of control black kids, including violent ones. Result: schools being even bigger failure factories than they already are.

These bastards will do the same thing to law enforcement.

Then the oh so tolerant, white liberals will move even further from the neighborhoods that have black citizens. This is what white liberals do in Michigan, they move further and further out, then talk about how they're so much more tolerant than conservatives.

Thanks for the info on that drunken pervert Orson Welles. According to Wiki, Georgina Spelvin hit the big time when she starred in The Devil in Miss Jones, a pr0n classic.

#251 (Captain Comic) got it right but screwed up the explanation. One turn makes a triangle 3 cm tall (12/4) and 4 cm long (the circumference). Most important, it's a right triangle. That makes it a 3/4/5 triangle. Four times that makes a 12/16/20 triangle. The 3/4/5 triangle is useful for layout.

471 No one but America's black population themselves can make them grow up, take personal responsibility for their lives, and pull themselves up.


But how the hell do you do that?


I'd like to see all affirmative action programs end. If universities end up 70% asian, 25% white and 5% other, that's fine. Those are the people doing the work.


Companies should also be hired based solely on ability. If you can't read and I have difficulty understanding your English, go improve yourself and apply again later. In reality, you should be able to hire whoever the heck you want in your company.


Announce an end to any new welfare cases in exactly 1 year. Anyone with existing benefits sees them decrease 20% a year until they're gone. Raise your own kids. Serve as a cautionary example to the next group down the road.


That last one is a wish list item, but there will come a day when even America's welfare net falls apart.


Blacks are awarded 230 bonus points on the SATs compared to whites. I've been wondering lately if that discrepancy is due to IQ levels or simple laziness.

#458:
A rod (rood), pole and perch are 1/4 of an old time surveyor's chain. The chain was 66 ft so they're all 16.5 ft (16' 6"). More properly, a perch is a measure of area, one square rod. Since an acre is 10 square chains, it all works out.

I can accept cultural failure made up of a ton of factors.

It's so infuriating because my mother's white family grew up in Detroit before they fled in the 80's, and as a liberal youth in Canada right across the river, I was pulling for the black population to succeed.
Now I've accepted that Detroit is a third world sh!thole and America's black population seems like a bunch of out of control children that need constant supervision.

The biggest factor is the victim mentality. It's the idea that you're not going to succeed because you're oppressed, so don't try, just lay blame and agitate for reparations and special treatment.

You're a victim because your great-great-grandparents were. You need the Leftist to save you from your plight. You can't do it on your own, despite the fact that everyone else does. It's a recipe for failure that's been drilled into their heads by media, schools, and Leftist cultural centers from day one.

The correlation between crime and IQ is very strong indeed, and it's easy to see why: stupid people can't figure out how to get what they want without breaking the law, have poor impulse control, and little ability to foresee consequences. And that correlation between IQ and crime rate extends across all demographics (except sex, of course).

602 Neither. It's due to cultural failure. Black kids are ostracized in school if they succeed, so they play dumb in order to be cool. Leftism has made it so that they sabotage themselves.

This doesn't explain the SATs.

The SATs are tests, taken in a supervised setting. Blacks, like anyone else, can play dumb in class and study at home. They then take this one test to prove their real worth.

Blacks score lower to the tune of minus two hundred whatever. This they do, in accord with the mean black IQ; which is scored a standard-deviation lower than the mean IQ of whites (and Asians).

Posted by: eman at June 09, 2015 10:34 PM (MQEz6)


Just envision one wrap of the string on a paper cylinder 4 inches in circumference, and 3 inches long. Assume the string is glued down. Cut the paper with scissors, parallel to its axis, at the point where the ends of the string fall. Flatten it out. It will be a rectangle 3 inches by 4 inches, and the string will run diagonally corner to corner. And "3,4,5" is one of the Pythagorean right triangles. If the two sides are 3 inches and 4 inches the hypotenuse has to be 5 inches. The original problem has 4 turns on it, so 4 times 5 inches is 20 inches.

622 After passing the latest item on Obama's agenda, John Boehner & Mitch McConnell meet in Boehner's office to have a dick measuring contest.

"You're doing it wrong," says John. "You've got to measure from the top side!"

"No," counters Mitch, "you measure from the bottom so you get the full length of the shaft.

After much bickering back and forth, they call in one of their aides to settle the dispute, and help them declare a winner.

Staring at the pantsless pair only a short time, the aide comes to a quick conclusion.

"Gentlemen", he says. "I can declare no winner. Take another look. You both have vaginas".

The phrase "all men are created equal" refers to equality under the law (where it is an ideal more honored in the breach than the observance, but never mind). It's manifestly untrue in other contexts. Hank Aaron didn't hit all those home runs because he took more batting practice than other guys; he did it because he was particularly gifted.

I don't think she was diddled by an adult. Mutual teen diddling with both sexes, absolutely. She very carefully waited to rebel against her wholesome image until after she was 18 & her Disney contract was done. She doesn't do hard drugs & has never been in trouble with the law. Definite a licentious skank, but she is in total control of everything she does. It's all too coldly & carefully calculated & controlled.

ambition x vanity + middle age = insecurity. and that's exactly where joan crawford found herself at a party in the 1950's when she came upon the up and coming starlet named marilyn monroe who was setting the town afire. she offered marilyn her expertise on classy clothes and invited her up to see her closets of couture dresses... got her drunk... and one thing led to another... with marilyn on the bed and joan going down. if she couldn't beat her, she'd have her!

joan wanted to continue the relationship but marilyn declined.

713 This math quiz reminds me somewhat of when my daughter was studying for the GRE, and the study book pointed out that the hardest part of many of the questions was simply reading comprehension. In #1, for example, I might have assumed they were giving diameter or radius, without noticing that they were giving circumference. Maybe I would have gotten it right, because I would have been looking for whether it was radius or diameter, and noticed that it said neither.

757 I like #516's solution to the cylinder problem best.

The base of the right triangle after you "unwrap" the string is 4*4cm = 16cm, 4 times the circumference.

The right triangle's height is 12cm, the length of the cylinder.

From there, you just recognize that it's a 3-4-5 right triangle (times 4cm). The first two sides are 3*4cm and 4*4cm, so the hypotenuse is 5*4cm = 20cm, which is the length of the string.

For those of you who are wondering what we are talking about, Arson's whatchamacallit is the ceremonial game of the Aztecs, played in large stadiums with a vertically-mounted hoop on each of the side walls. It was played with a solid rubber ball and stone girdles, and was evidently like a bouncy version of competitive hackysack where the losers were sacrificed to the gods.

Is there a way I can talk to you in a semi private way?

I was hoping Cold would be here, but he's not. That's why I'm asking you.

Posted by: L, Elle at June 10, 2015 01:57 AM (2x3L+)


I'm still here. Is there someone else you can authenticate off of?

And, also, what is the urgency of your contact? I don't want to whip myself into a frenzy tonight (and wake people up) when there are easier, more gentle ways of doing things tomorrow.

785 47 Oh, come on you guys. The string goes around the cylinder 4 times, meaning you can split it into four segments of equal length. Each of those segments can be "cut" and "flattened" into a square, with length 4cm and width 3cm. The string goes diagonally across four of these squares, and completing the triangle gives 5cm for the diagonal across those squares.

4x5=20.
Posted by: Problem 1


That would be true if the problem involved a line drawn on the surface of the cylinder, so that it can be resolved down to simple two-dimensional geometry.

Alas, however, the problem as described is actually much, much more difficult, because any string, according to quantum theory, must necessary have some thickness or width or whatever you want to call it. There is a physical lower limit to thickness beyond which it cannot be halved any more. So even the theoretically thinnest string, made, say, of a single strand of carbon atoms, or of quarks glued end-to-end, inscribes a three-dimensional spiral above the surface of the cylinder. So that if you attempted to "flatten out" the whole shebang, the cylinder and the string would unfurl/flatten at different rates, causing some kind of kink or bend in the string, since it would necessarily be infinitesimally (at a minimum) longer than would a line inscribed directly on the cylinder.

So, to solve the problem with absolute precision, would would actually need to know the thickness of the string, and then open the Pandora's box of Pi and limits and so forth.

And yes, it was pointing out issues like these that actually got me in trouble with my high school teachers, who rewarded me for my precision with lowered grades.

Well, zombie, in the real world, the thickness of the string would be an issue. But in math problems of this nature, if the diameter of the string is not given, one should assume it's a dimensionless line, as per geometry.

The trick is to not over-think the problem.

As soon as you start dealing with a "real" string, you move out of the realm of pure mathematics into the world of engineering. As we know, engineers make certain simplifying assumptions.

One of which is the concept of "close enough" for practical purposes.

While it may be impossible to determine the required length of string mathematically, an engineer can cut a piece of string to wrap the cylinder properly.

813 The trick is to not over-think the problem.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon


Actually, if you over-think it enough, you win.

There was the legendary case, back in the 1980s or '90s I think, of a guy taking the SAT who "overthought" a geometry multiple-choice problem involving (if I remember) a plane intersecting a multisided figure.

Back in the old old days, long after taking the test one was simply informed of one's total SAT score, and that was that. But the year this kid took the test was the first (or among the first) years that they actually allowed you to see, when you got your score/results, what the correct answers had been, as compared with what you answered. (Not sure if they still have this policy.)

Well, this kid's brain had gone into unnecessary overdrive on this geometry problem, and he derived an answer that did not appear as one of the multiple choice options. So what he did was fill in the box of the answer approximately closest to his calculation, and then wrote in the margin (fruitlessly, as such marginalia are never taken into account in SAT scores) what he thought the actual answer was.

Well, when he got back his total SAT score (which was already very high), he looked to see what the correct given answer was for the problem that had bedeviled him. He was shocked to discover that it was something completely different than what he had marked and what he had written in the margin.

So, being an obsessive-compulsive budding lunatic, he pursued the matter and demanded from the College Test Board (the people who make the SAT) how in the world they had derived their supposedly "correct" answer.

They dutifully showed it to him, thinking that was the end of the issue. But he immediately informed them that they were wrong, that their "answer" was only true in one specific case -- Euclidian three-dimensional space. But that there was a more generalized/universally precise answer that applied to n-dimensional space, which they hadn't considered. Nor had they specified in the question that the problem was limited to normal everyday three-dimensional space.

A legal fracas ensued, but in the end, the boy won, and the SAT folks were compelled to concede that he was correct, in an obsessive-compulsive over-thinking kind of way.

So they changed his score to be a bit higher, and counted his answer as "correct."

And they though that was the end of it.

But no!

Then the boy insisted that every single SAT test-taker in the world who had marked the same "incorrect" answer as him ALSO have their total score increased, since one couldn't assume that they had all simply marked the wrong answer out of ignorance; perhaps another genius had also derived the same n-dimensional conclusion.

The College Board resisted, but eventually caved, and had to recalculate millions and million of SAT scores and re-issue the results to everyone in the world.

To us overthinkers, this boy -- whose name I have long forgotten -- is our God.

Hope you haven't been hacked. I link your site from time to time as does Doug Ross (directorblue).

One day my daughter comes home from school with a math question she 'missed' in 8th grade. It was an order of operations problem, and the school was teaching it wrong. So I wrote out a little proof of the problem and sent it to them, and they revised their math curriculum as a result. And she got credit for the right answer, natch.

Another time, I was checking over the wife's payroll stub and found that this rather large company was doing a withholding calc wrong; they had to reissue the previous year's W-2s and adjust everyone's paychecks for the current year. I guess no one ever bothers to check these things.

I also caught a Burger King outlet overcharging on sales tax (they were charging tax on the free item in a buy one get one free coupon). I already had the correct amount in hand...
