Loose wire may have caused speed wobbles!

February23

One of our earlier posts brought into question Einstein’s theories on the speed of light. Here is the latest update – apparently a loose fibre connection may have caused the hiccup! A full account can be found here.

Faster than light? Hold your atomic horses, I don’t think so!

November25

Here is an update on the “faster than light” experiment which has caused such a stir in the scientific community. The comments on this link are interesting to read as well.

The graph on the left (Coronavirus) is for a time period of 30 days, while the one on the right (SARS) is for 8 months! Very poor graphical comparison and hardly relevant, unless it is attempting to downplay the seriousness of the coronavirus?

10 x 9 x 8 + (7 + 6) x 5 x 4 x (3 + 2) x 1 = 2020

NCEA Level 2 Algebra Problem. Using the information given, the shaded area = 9, that is:
y(y-8) = 9 –> y.y – 8y – 9 =0
–> (y-9)(y+1) = 0, therefore y = 9 (can’t have a distance of – 1 for the other solution for y)
Using the top and bottom of the rectangle,
x = (y-8)(y+2) = (9-8)(9+2) = 11
but, the left side = (x-4) = 11-4 = 7, but rhs = y+? = 9+?, which is greater than the value of the opp. side??
[I think that the left had side was a mistake and should have read (x+4)?]
