    That was very good Brain, I actually squirted out a LOL.

    I think I'll wait awhile to see if anyone can come up with the real answer.

      OK, time to put my psychic powers to work again...

      Robert got a zero for the problem in question, because the answer was incorrect. While using the correct methodology but making a simple error in calculation can sometimes lead to partial credit, that's usually reserved for beginning math classes, and this was not an introductory course.

      There were only a very few problems (~5?), and so the total loss of credit for this problem dropped his score from a passing grade (which still would not have been 100% if this one problem had been correct) to a failing grade. i.e., with five questions, Hodge would have gotten an 80% if he had gotten this one right, but the total loss of credit gave him a 60%.

      So kind of a hybrid of The Brain's #1 and #3 explanations.

      Oh, and your neighbor knows you're stealing his wi-fi. He's OK with it, though, because he's selling your account usernames and passwords to the Russian mob.

        WOW I'm super impressed, MaxH is batting 1000 (or iis it 100 )

        I had to take a college class called Computational Techniques for Computers.

        It was way back during the times when microprocessors couldn't do floating point math. So you had to learn ways to do math to get accurate results without using decimal points.

        For example if you divide 20 by 200 the answer is .1 But without floating point math the processor would return 0 as the answer. So you would have to trick the processor by telling it to divide (20 * 100) / 200 and then take the result and move the decimal 2 places to the left to get the correct answer.

        I don't remember the exact test (it's all just fuzzy math to me now). But it was only one question. It was something like: Given a 14" Cherry pie with 30 cherries evenly distributed in the pie, what is the area of a slice of pie whose two radi have an interior angle of 15 degrees.

        You could use any math you wanted, you could use sines/cosines or integral calculus, you could even use the fact that Pie Are Squared, but you had to document each step of your calculation to demostrate you were deriving the answer without using decimals.

        You could get bonus points for correctly calculating how many cherries were in the slice of pie.

        The answer had to be accurate within 3 decimal places.

        I calculated the correct number but got the wrong answer because of where I put the final decimal point. The instructor was very unforgiving because computers are not supposed to provide incorrect results. So he gave me an F. His attitude was well...... very binary.

        I'm now wise enough to gut check my math, but back then I was too naive.

        Once again Great Job MaxH!!!

          From a previous post by RonV: So it was your family that stole my ID. I had someone from there apply for credit with my SSN. When the authorities went to the address of the person it was an abandoned building. What type of business is your family running down there?
          Well that certainly explains now how RonV's ID was stolen. The damn Ruskies got it!!!

            Yep and I am still battling the Red Army.....so far my side is winning....

            But I found out what they did with it. The Red Army Choir needed funding for this:

              Yea, and that's what really makes me freakin angry. I was going to use it to get a nice little in-ground add-on hot tub installed next to my pool.
