Oh man, I get this way about many math problems. Like the other day, this girl was like “oh hai tiki, me and this girl want to sleep with you, you know what that would be?” and I’m all like “bitch, I don’t do no word math problems like that” and then she left. psh. math nerds.

Tiki, you are my hero. Which is why I’m an alcoholic.

We’re supposed to believe girls actually ask you for sex?

@fiaminggiory

Just play along.

Maybe I’m missing something, but that first line didn’t look like it needed solving in the first place… but Nooooooo, a+b+d would be just too simple…

Mathematicians… Always over complicating things…

Silly Phyreblade! It’s math. No one understands it.

a + b + d could have just been a variable substitution. But that square root just seems to come out of nowhere.

@reboot: Actually, the entire expression is raised to the 1/2 power prior to the radical.

@siv0r

right, those are obviously equivalent notations. I meant in step 2. In general, you can’t substitute the sum of 3 terms for the square root of sum of 3 terms. If there was no sqrt, you could say that there was a substitution of d = 2*3 ln 11 and so on for a & b. But as written, there is no way to equate a,b & d with specific terms in the 2nd expression.

Tiki is ur irl name rli tiki?

whoh, I just realized irl is rli spelt backwards.

I’m nearly ready to concede the point, but something about the exponent makes me think it might’ve been written in some wonky way using laws of logarithms. I’m so rusty!

i hate maths

In other words, Annarchy is right, and mathematics is a lie…
