Flat out in 3 or 4 Dimensions…

August23

How many dimensions are there in our universe? From 2009 (http://phys.org/news/2009-02-fourth-dimension.html): “Creating a unified theory of quantum gravitation is often considered to be the “Holy Grail” of modern science. Daniel Grumiller (left) from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology, Austria, can now at least unravel some of the mysteries of quantum gravitation. […]

Wearing Striped Pyjamas depends on the heat?

February7

The Royal Society of Open Science examined how well 29 environmental variables predict the variation in stripe characteristics of zebras across their range of habitats in Africa. The patterns of zebra stripes have fascinated scientists for a long time but, until now, there has been no mathematical explanation for them. In contrast to recent findings, […]

Science needs Mathematics!

January31

You might say, “Of course Science needs Mathematics, just as cars need engines.” In some ways, Mathematics is the glue that holds Science together. Mathematics powers the Sciences! This begs the question – “Does Mathematics need the Sciences?” “Mathematics is used in Physical Science for measurements and to show relationships. Arithmetic consists of simple operations […]

Scientists Make Tractor Beam To Control Floating Objects!

August15

Physicists at Australian National University have taken a bold step toward “Star Trek” tech with their latest invention — a water-based tractor beam that could eventually be used to clean up oil spills and control floating objects. “We have figured out a way of creating waves that can force a floating object to move against […]

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)?]
