## agentx5 3 years ago " @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? ;-)

1. agentx5

^_^

2. Ishaan94

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

3. agentx5

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

4. agentx5

What says age can be expressed irrationally?

5. agentx5

In fact... Example: http://www.piday.org/

6. Ishaan94

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

7. ArturoBenedetti

Why do you not celebrate tau day, too?

8. Ishaan94

i don't even celebrate pi day :( i am not a true mathematician :(

9. ArturoBenedetti

You are right! Idiotic stuff...

10. agentx5

|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?

11. estudier

Tau day is good, get rid of all them irritating 2's.....

12. agentx5

/me agrees with @estudier

13. estudier

Now if we can just have something to get rid of minus signs.....

14. ArturoBenedetti

But nobody needs tau day or pi day!

15. Ishaan94

depends how do you count age? agentx

16. Ishaan94

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

17. Ishaan94

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

18. agentx5

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

19. Ishaan94

prove it to me in fraction

20. agentx5

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.

21. agentx5

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

22. Ishaan94

no that's not what i was trying to imply

23. Ishaan94

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

24. agentx5

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)

25. Ishaan94

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?

26. agentx5

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)
