" @agentx5: No, you both are 6ππ/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? ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my age is fixed fraction. just because 3<pi<4, doesn't make pi someone's age

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ah but if you're measuring time, or any measurement, do you not cross over that point that represents the irrational at some point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What says age can be expressed irrationally?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In fact... Example: http://www.piday.org/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it will but like i said i am pretty sure my age is fixed fraction and not pi atm.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw: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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1depends how do you count age? agentx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i don't think you will have something really irrational unless you start considering the tiniest unit of time. like the golden ratio.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a good irrational = golden ratio not the unit of time lol i worded my sentence wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1prove it to me in fraction

agentx5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In short, you don't have to have a fixed fraction to have a value that is real.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that's not what i was trying to imply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how do you count age? if you are only considering months and years, you will get fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16\(\pi\)\(\frac{\pi}{3}\) yrs. \(\approx\) 18.849555921.047197551 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 subunits 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 nonserious 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, 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?

agentx5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1True 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)
