what comment would you give about this number? can you notice anything?
yup the 1234 is being repeated
exactly. so it's repeating itself after each four digits.
now you can just write all the number till you reach the 29th decimal place, which would not be difficult in this case.
but there is another way, that's similar to what we did with the hours question.
so what way do you prefer to use?
both are easy and straight forward.
do we times the 1234 by 29?
no no
4 times 29? :S
since its repeating itself after each 4 digits, and you're looking for the 29th decimal place. divide 29 by 4 ( tell me the integer quotient and the reminder)
I mean when you divide 29 between 4 people, how much will each one get and what's the left over?
each gets 7 and left over would be 25 :s ?
are you sure about your left over? all you have is 29 :)
i put 29 devided by 3 and i got 7.25 :S
okay you mean by 4, it would be easier if you didn't use a calculator. but this is fine. your reminder is 0.25*4=?
1
no no no srry
why? it's right.
oh .. ok :D
now we have 29/4= 7 and reminder 1.. that says that the 4 decimal digits will be repeated "7 times" and it will be back to the "1st digit" in the 29th digit. so what is the 29th decimal digit?
1 ?
yeah that's right. what if it's asking about the 30th decimal digit?
2 ?
exactly.. what if it's asking about the 61st decimal digit? take your time!
4?
why 4?
cz i counted till i got to 61 and i landed on 4 :S is it wrong?
the point is at the reminder of 61/4?
if you can't directly figure out the reminder, you just multiply the decimal part by 4 to get the reminder.
61/4=15.25, then the reminder is?
1?
yeah, and so the 61st decimal digit is?
1 ?
that's right. :) I suck at teaching, don't I? :(
lool are u kidding?!?! ur better than my teacher ! xD! i actually thought u were a teacher for a minute :S are u in university ?
lol I don't think you're serious.. yeah in university.
no for real ! u would be a great math teacher :D what are u studying ?
math :)
lol there u go then :) that explains everything then xD!
well actually I just transferred to mathematics this semester, I was studying electrical engineering.
nice ... most Arabs study engineering anyway :P
they do?
yea :S ! holy man u should come see our universities here -.-! u ask an arab wat r u studying they be like ENGINEERING! and im like yea i guessed :P
OH I didn't know that at all.
lol oh well its for a good cause any way cz most canadians dont like engineering so we tend to balance them out :P
haha.. you see you're good at math!
i am? how? :S
you understand the balance principle :P
lool well i was just assuming :P
have you ever been to Palestine?
nope i was born in syria
I see.. I hope one day we all can go there!
im going though next year inshallah :)
you can, but I can't :(.. you have a Canadian citizenship right?
yup
but y do u want to go so bad though? lol r u from palestine too ?
no.. I am Saudi :)
thats a pleasure :)
i have a question :D
the pleasure is all mine.. sure ask away.
so i have here a square thats perimeter is 20 cm and its inside a bigger square thats perimeter is 28 cm how do i find the area of the space between them :S
here let me draw it :S
haha.. the area between them is equal to the area of the big square minus the area of the smal one.
can you find the area of each square?
i have to find the area of the shaded part here i sent it
1 Attachment
excuse my silly drawing :$
lol
are they both squares?
yes :S
okay.. what does the area of a square equal to?
u mean L x W ?
it's a square right?
so the length is equal to the width, tight?
yea so its base x height
no, it's x times x
you multiply one side by itself, that's the area of a square.
yea thats wat i meant :P
okay good :).. now you need to find the length of one side (that's the same as all other sides).
so thats 28/4 = 7 for the big square and 20/4=5 for the small square
exactly..
so the area of the big square would be?
and that means that the area of the small square is 25 cm2 and the big square = 28cm2 ?
no no no
ahan?
big square = 49 am2
amazing!!
cm!!
LOL!
then the area between them is?
24
are you sure you're not cheating? :P
woooow u think im that bad at math D:
HAHA.. NO I was just kidding
lol! u better be :)
yes I am << totally scared :P
MAUAHAHAH! >:)!
seriously, that was pretty good!
thank you :D !
it's 1:12 am in Canada, don't you have classes tomorrow?
yes but i take long naps and drink alot of coffee to stay awake longer :P
lol!! why is that? sleep is a gift.. whenever you feel sleepy, just lie down and get some sleep.
but i dont feel sleepy at night i only get sleepy in the afternoons :S
i woke up at 8 pm
wow.. your schedule is messed up.:P
nah im used to it :P if i dont get my nap i pass out at 10 PM
I was just talking to a friend from Toronto, he just left a couple of minutes ago from MSN.
yea my whole family is asleep except for me and my bro and mi mama :P
lol you all are awake then :P
not all my mom just left and mi bro wont be goin to sleep till 2 or 3 but mi dad and sis's are all sleeping :P
I see!! should I think that you're the kind of student who sleeps in class? << I know I am asking too much :P
LOL i cant sleep in class my friends would be takin pictures as soon as they see me sleeping -.-! no way thats gona happen xD!
you don't sleep in class not because you want to focus on what your teacher says, but rather because you worry about your friends may take pictures of you.. not bad I guess. the result still the same :P
sometimes sleeping in class feels so good, you should try it sometimes (away from your friends) if that's possible.
lol im too smart for those teachers ^_^ ... just not the math once .. v.v
yea maybe i should :P
mashallah.. I thought so!
hehe
arghhh ! i drank too much coffee :'( cant sleep cant even think straight! -.-
I didn't get enough sleep either.. only 3 hours!
:O! for the whole day?!
it's 8:37 AM.. I will get 2 more hours from 1 PM to 3 PM.. and that's it for today I guess.
woow! how are u gona make it for the rest of the day?
I will survive..
good luck "surviving" :)
thank you!! good luck to you as well, we are in the same boat. :)
haha what a coincidence!
Well most people have sleeping issues I guess.
mhm! anyways im gonna try my best ill read a few chapters till i get sleepy it was nice talkin to u thx for all the help :)
you're welcome!! nice talking to you as well.. good luck "getting sleepy" :)
