## lgbasallote 3 years ago 400th question special: Proof that vampires do NOT exist..Calculus way (sorry twilight fans)

1. lgbasallote

Let v = number of vampires t = months Let's say the first vampire, Dracula, existed on the year 1600. Therefore, at t = 0, v = 1. Dracula sleeps for the whole month. Then, during the full moon, he turns someone into a vampire. Therefore, at t = 1, v = 2. Now, we use the formula $\huge \ln (\frac{v}{v_o}) = k(t - t_o)$ where: $$v_o$$ = initial number of vampires $$v$$ = final number of vampires $$t$$ = final time $$t_o$$ = initial time $$k$$ = constant so now, let us solve for the constant $\huge \ln (\frac{2}{1}) = k(1 - 0)$ $\huge \ln (2) = k$ $\huge 0.6931 = k$ Now, let us calculate how many vampires there would be 10 years later or when t = 120 months. To solve for v, we use the same equation again. $\huge \ln (\frac{v}{v_o}) = kt$ $\huge \frac{v}{v_o} = e^{kt}$ $\huge v = v_o e^{kt}$ Now, we substitute. $\huge v = (1)[e^{(0.6931)(120)}]$ $\huge v = 1.3292 \times 10^{36}$ Now, I doubt there were that huge amount of population in the world by the year 1610. Therefore, we can say that according to the formula for growth in Calculus, vampires do NOT exist!

lol awesome

4. Calcmathlete

Very amusing and I actually understood it :D

5. Outkast3r09

VAMPIRES DEFY CALCULUS THEY DO EXIST!

6. Outkast3r09

just like the talking chocolate m&m's

7. lgbasallote

wonder if "shiny" vampires also exist..hmm

8. Trexy

Im seriously lost.. hahah.. XD

9. lgbasallote

bottomline...vampires dont exist lol

10. UnkleRhaukus

dosent this model assume the vampires are imortal?

11. lgbasallote

this model assumes that everyone in the world by now are vampires

12. UnkleRhaukus

but surely some of the vampires are killed , maybe you need another term to give the population

13. lgbasallote

even if you cut half or even three fourths of that number...there's still too many

14. UnkleRhaukus

Professor Abraham Van Helsing

15. lgbasallote

hmm you're good -___- there's also Abraham Lincoln the Vampire Slayer

16. UnkleRhaukus

lolz

17. ironictoaster

This is a great way to start your day revising differential equations haha

18. lgbasallote

indeed it is haha

19. bernardthe1st

How could you say, im a vampire. J/K Well it makes sense. the calculation is awesooome

20. lgbasallote

why thank you ;)

21. Wolfboy

vlaud the impailer...the original dracula

However, vampires are not included in national censuses. They live in the shadows and only come out at night. Censuses are taken during the day time.

24. lgbasallote

actually Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends conduct censuses during nighttime

25. morcousw

But vampires aren't imaginary!

26. SmoothMath

All that you've proved is that many of the "people" I meet are actually vampires. In fact, I might be one and not know it.

27. blockcolder

Why has carrying capacity not been accounted for here?

28. JamesJ

Argument by contradiction: Suppose vampires exist. Then because I have very tasty blood, I would be dead. But I am not. Therefore vampires don't exist. QED.

29. lgbasallote

that is a very good point..isnt that called a proof by contrapositive? or is it another thing?

30. apoorvk

Hmm, vampire's ain't living. So they're unreal. Imaginary. (existence in iota format ^.^). So as many of them may exist, but not necessary that they would occupy space in the world! There's is a world parallel to ours, called the Argand's World! (Count Argand was a great Vampire *sigh*. They lost him to the werewolves). So, your proof is-one-helluva-EPICFAIL!!!! (you have no idea, a vampy may just be standing right behind you. Reason why he isn't sucking your blood right now is that he's had his fill for tonight -.-) *MAY JUST BE* -.- "Concealed within the living world that we see, exists a dark.. unknown... unfathomable sphere of creatures that dwell on the blood of the real world... In this Argand's world, not a single drop of blood is wasted... *Welcome to DRACUVILLE!* "

31. apoorvk

*Their's

32. apoorvk

@lgbasallote the fundamental error due to which you got that huge no. is that you didn't account for Vampires being killed (by werewolves ofcourse) -.-

33. Romero

GO TEAM EDWARD!!!!!

34. apoorvk

uhh, Edward was expelled from the group of vampires. He was too bad and disgraceful to our community. -.-

35. apoorvk

So don't even mention his name unless you want to be thrown to the werewolves like we did to him. -_-
