" @agentx5: No, you both are 6π-π/3. It's true." " @Ishaan94: you can't express pi as rational, i am pretty sure my age is rational " True or False, does 6\(\pi\)-\(\frac{\pi}{3}\) lie on the interval between 17 and 18? ;-)

    my age is fixed fraction. just because 3<pi<4, doesn't make pi someone's age

    Ah but if you're measuring time, or any measurement, do you not cross over that point that represents the irrational at some point?

    What says age can be expressed irrationally?

    it will but like i said i am pretty sure my age is fixed fraction and not pi atm.

    Why do you not celebrate tau day, too?

    |dw:1342549899638:dw| I agree your age isn't \(\pi\) yrs., that would make you 3.1415... yrs. old :-D In fact I don't know what you age is, I just am making a mathematics debate in contention that the units don't restrict the numeric value to a integer or repeated decimal. \[\pi \in \mathbb{R}\], agreed?

    i don't think you will have something really irrational unless you start considering the tiniest unit of time. like the golden ratio.

    a good irrational = golden ratio not the unit of time lol i worded my sentence wrong

    |dw:1342550379457:dw| \(\sqrt{2}\) is also irrational is it not? ;-)

    You can't it's irrational. But it does have a value that is real. As long as it's real it can be applied to units with no problem, be it meter, kilograms, mols, MeV, # of particles, or yes even unit of time such as seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, and epochs.

    In short, you don't have to have a fixed fraction to have a value that is real.

    how do you count age? if you are only considering months and years, you will get fractions.

    6\(\pi\)-\(\frac{\pi}{3}\) yrs. \(\approx\) 18.84955592-1.047197551 yrs. \(\approx\) 17.80235837 yrs. Converting: there are 365.25 days per year there are 24 hours in a day there are 60 minutes in an hour there are 60 seconds in a minute Each time you write as sub-units you write as a mixed fraction and the remainder become the next part. Eventually you'd end up with a number of years, days into that year, hour of the day, minute of the hour, and down to the second of the minute. But so what? :-) ( yes I realize this is a more non-serious discussion, but I believe I have a valid point here. Maybe @myininaya can settle the definition debate if she's got time and needs a break from the regular routines)

    okay, it's a fact that my age will definitely be irrational at some instance of time. but you can't prove my age to be irrational as of now, can you?

    True that, and it appears you got my point finally :-D I have no idea of you age and therefore I cannot prove you are irrationally aged. (like cheese)
