    I hate Math. Everything I learned always contradicted everything else I learned.

    For example, when I was in 7th grade Pre-Algebra my teacher taught me that the square root of -1 is an impossibility. Then in 10th grade Adv. Algebra they they taught me that thq square root of -1 is "i". :wtf: ...there for it can be solved and is not an impossibility.

    Fraggles?

    Yeah, them puppets is great. :D

    The Fast Fourier Transform is cool too. I remember figurign out how it worked. Like a bomb going off. Very cool algorithm.

    Factor the square root of i. Let's see. That would be the same as factoring the fourth root of -1 since i is the square root of -1. Right???

    So, what are the factors of the fourth root of -1. Hmmm, what IS the fourth root of -1. :wtf: Ack! Brain fart! :p

    Furthur to that, let's try this. Can you have a positive i and a negative i? How about a positive and negative root of i? What happens if we take the negative root of i and multiply it by the positive root of i? or if i x i = -1, what does i x -i =?

    Bwahahahhaaaaa! :wtf:

    Grade 1-11 math. Good.

    Grade 12 math, stupid, useless crap. You'd never use anything that you learn in grade 12 math in life! You forget it all.

    Well, unless you're going to major in a math or engineering field. Then you should take it.

    Trig is useful. So's statistics. I can't think of an application for Calculus in daily life, but I'm sure there must be at least one...=)

    Some engineers use calculus, but most don't. :)

    square root of i= 1,45°
    negative square root of i= 1,225°
    negative square root of i times square root of i=1,10°
    i x -i = 1

    I'm thinking you should be concerned that you know the answers to those questions. :D
