If you haven’t seen the new iteration of the series Doctor Who, you won’t get this and you definitely need to check that series out. Wonderful. I totally got addicted for a few months.

This seems to have an aspect of art, math, and music each.

5,000 guitar picks form Jimi Hendrix’s face. Ed Chapman.

I’ve never seen this Dali painting before! Crazy. It’s like hearing a hit song by one of your favorite bands, that you somehow missed over the years.

The golden ratio abounds in this painting. It’s in the table, the pentagonal windows, the bodies of the disciples. It’s everywhere in the painting.

Great fusion of art and math if I ever saw one.

Ron’s box of Bernie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans has 150 beans in it, and the probability of getting a flavor so gross he spits it out is .23.

a) what is the probability that Ron with spit out at least 40 of the beans?

b) If Ron splits the box evenly with Harry, what is the probability that he will spit out 1/3 of the beans in his share?

c) Ron’s favorite flavor is apple tart. If apple tart makes up approximately 2% of Bernie Bott’s beans, what is the probability that Ron gets at least 5 apple tarts, assuming he goes through the whole box?

Amy Pond has been left behind by the Doctor and is waiting for him to come back. However, the Doctor has miscalculated again and the probability that he will return is only .01.

a) What is the probability that the Doctor will come back within the first year that Amy waits?

b) What is the probability that it will take up to 36 years for the Doctor to come back for Amy?

Answers:

How to derive 2x from x^{2} algebraically. You must, however, be willing to disregard second order infinitesimals as negligible.

Basically, any time you see (dx)^{2} you can eliminate it entirely from the equation. It’s an infinitesimal amount of an infinitesimal amount, and disregarding them makes the algebra work out nice.

Why wouldn’t we be living in shit-huts right here in America?

Definitely an interesting read. Read it. Stop complaining. Learn math.

Thank you :)
