Half of Five is Four?Date: 11/04/2004 at 12:54:40 From: Don Subject: Half of five is four? What's the only number system where half of five is four? Date: 11/05/2004 at 12:15:10 From: Doctor Rick Subject: Re: Half of five is four? Hi, Don. This is more of a riddle than a math problem. The answer is really two "number systems"; one is the written-out English name of the number. Can you see the other yet? - Doctor Rick, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Date: 11/05/2004 at 12:32:39 From: Don Subject: Thank you (Half of five is four?) Thank you for your help. I appreciate the clue to get the first part which made it easy to get the second part on my own. |
