Elabarate setup? - Rosemary16 - 12-17-2011 07:34 AM

I was given the math problem:

900,752,738,699,520,755,700 * 300,790,001,759,123,456,111

I can solve the problem, but I have a problem. The problem is that I need to prove that I didn't use a calculator. My teacher percieves typical multiplacation as-if I used a calculator to do each individual row, thus getting me in trouble. Goingcrazy
I cannot use line multiplaction since the number contains zeros. I need to record a video of it, but I don't have a camera or the abbility to purchase anything outside of stores or time to go to the store, thus I cannot purchase hypercam. Mad

This teacher of yours must be douchebag if he truly made your class do this math problem.

Well if you can, just record in your cell phone, if you have one.

I don't have a cell-phone, and the assignment was for me, not the class (6 students).

You can still use row multiplication with zeros, just follow the usual math rules. Write it on paper. Sorry bro, but this is going to be time consuming. What a waste of time


RE: Elabarate setup? - Rosemary16 - 12-17-2011 07:44 AM

I can do that, but my teacher will still perceive that I used a calculator to figure it out, so it won't work. Suspicious Mwahaha

Edit: My teacher is a scheme artist, that will make traps. Thunder


RE: Elabarate setup? - zagix - 12-17-2011 09:37 AM

What... why don't you ask your teacher what to do

She asked me to solve the problem and then prove that I didn't use the calculator to solve the problem (to her). When I multiply normally, she sees that I carried random numbers, and with lattice multiplacation, I think it might work.

Should I try? Scratchchin

Edit: How do you carry a number over 99?

If I just write that, my teacher will say that I used a calculator. Giggle

You need to have a ingenious brain like mine. Biggrin


RE: Elabarate setup? - Rosemary16 - 12-17-2011 09:54 AM

Me and you are smarter than my teacher so I need to explain how to solve the problem without the calculator.


RE: Elabarate setup? - Miller0700 - 12-17-2011 09:56 AM

Somehow.....


RE: Elabarate setup? - UnschoolShqiponjë - 12-17-2011 10:01 AM

There is no way your teacher seriously asked you guys to do that without a calculator. Either he/she is messin with you or you are messin with us.

I'm just going to do lattice for the whole problem, hand it in anynomously, and then lie to her and tell her that I couldn't do the work that was assigned on Monday.

Is that a good plan?


RE: Elabarate setup? - SoulRiser - 12-17-2011 10:22 AM

Nobody in their right mind would ever do that without a calculator unless their life depended on it. Laugh

2.70937417857964118909552*10^42

This is what I came up with by hand. Suspicious

Edit: Don't always trust a calculator since it says that √4 - 2 = -1.068281969439142e-19.
I know that √4 = 2 and 2 - 2 = 0.
That means that 0 = -1.068281969439142e-19, but that is totally illogical in any sense.

Wow that's so fucking stupid. That is irrevelant to life. And plus, in final examinations you have to use a calculator anyway..nonetheless you can pirate some cam software...
And I've just noticed everyone asks for Math help on SS. Math seems to be considered hard, heck even I find Math the hardest subject in Prison.
Just wait for one of the math freaks to answer this, I can't be bothered at 2:13am! :( Sorry bro.
EDIT: I thought I was the first one to reply lol

That would never happen when you're just multiplying 2 numbers.
