Subj: The
Beauty Of Math (S558c)
From: LABLaughsClean on 9/30/2007
This is kinda neat...
1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123
x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8
+ 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 =
98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321
1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234
x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9
+ 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7
= 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10 = 1111111111
9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876
x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9
+ 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2
= 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888
Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x
1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 =
123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Name: ________________
Alias: _______________
Gang: ________________
1. Johnny has an AK47 with
an 80 round clip. If he missed
6 out of
10 shots and shoots 18 times at each driveby
shooting,
how many driveby shootings can he attempt
before he
shoots 50 people?
2. Jose has 2 ounces of cocaine
and he sells an 8 bal to
Jackson for
$820 and 2 grams to Billy for $85 per gram.
What is the
street value of the balance of the cocaine
if he doesn't
cut it?
3. Rufus is pimping for three
girls. If the price is $65
for each
trick, how many tricks will each girl have to
turn so Rufus
can pay for his $800 per day crack habit?
4. Jerome wants to cut his 1/2
pound of heroine to make 20%
more profit.
How many ounces of cut will he need?
5. Willie gets $200 for stealing
a BMW, $50 for a Chevy, and
$100 for
a 4x4, if he has stolen 2 BMW's and 3 4x4's, how
many Chevy's
will he have to steal to make $800?
6. Raul is in prison for 6 years
for murder. He got $25,000
for the hit.
If his common law wife is spending $250 per
month, how
much will be left when he gets out of prison
and how many
years will he get for killing the bitch that
spent his
money?

for his date Saturday night
with his
young 14 year old girlfriend. He was arrested

prison time is he looking for the carjacking and
for statutory
rape, even though the girl looked legal?
Assume no
prior convictions in arriving at your answer.

11. Thelma can cook dinner for
her 16 children for $7.50
per night.
She gets $234 a month welfare for each child.
If her $325
per month rent goes up 15%, how many more
children
should she have to keep up with her expenses?
12. Salvador was arrested for
dealing crack and his bail
was set at
$25,000. If he pays a bail bondsman 12% and
returns to
Mexico, how much money will he lose by
jumping bail?
City Of Los Angeles High School Math Proficiency Exam (Answers)
1. Johnny hits 15*(4/10) people
per driveby, which means
that he will
have to participate in 9 drive bys to shoot
50 people.
However, he will have completed two driveby
shootings
and be just starting the third when he has to
reload.
Since he only stole a single clip, he'll only
have shot
16 people when the homeboys with the Uzis' make
Swiss cheese
out of him.
2. At 454 grams per pound, 2oz
of the rock = 56.75 grams.
An "8 ball"
is 8 grams, so pony has sold 10 grams total
and has 46.75
grams left. If he keeps selling 8balls,
he can sell
5 more (for a total of 5*$320=$1,600) and
have 6.75
grams for his own nose. If he sells 2 gram
packs, he
can sell (46/223) packs at $85 apiece =
(23*$85)=$1,955.
However, he could divide it into small
parts, bake
it up into crack and sell the rocks for an
even larger
profit. This problem is really more suited
for the Gang
MultiVariable Economics Test.
3. 800/$64=12 tricks plus a
dance. Also, Ron should consider
making a
deal with Pony from Question #2.
4. If he sells the cut heroin
at the same price per unit
volume, he
will need 20% more volume. 20% of 1/2 pound
(=8oz) is
1.6oz. So, Jarome will need 1.6oz of cut to add
to the 8
oz of heroin to get 20% more volume. He will
want a cut
which looks similar to raw heroin and has
approximately
the same melting point. Plain sugar or
laundry detergent
are suggested. Laundry detergent has
the added
benefit of removing the possibility of customer
complaints,
but will sharply limit repeat business.
5. Willie has made 2*$200 +
3*$100=$700 dollars from his
theft so
far. He needs $100 more, so he needs to steal
$100/$50=2
more Chevy's. However, he will probably want
to steal
4 Chevy's so he can take the extra two and make
a really
def lowrider.
6. 6 years*12 months/year*$250/month=$18,000.
Raul will
have $25,000
 $18,000 = $7,000 left when he gets out of
prison.
If Raul kills her in the USA, he should expect
to get 6
years. However, if he takes her down to Mexico
and buries
her scrawny, trackmarked butt in the desert,
he can get
off scott free.
7. 3 cans of paint will cover
3*22=66 square feet. 66/4=16
letters with
a little paint left over to spray in the
eyes of the
cop who's comin' after you. Or the tagger
could do
15 letters and a bitchin' skull.
8. 6/27=22% of the girls.
However, 2 of them are lying
because they've
been sleeping with Pedro, Hector's
lieutenant.
So, in actuality, Hector only knocked up
4/27 or 14.8%.
9. Solve X/10=250 for X, X=$2,500.
10. Mike is only 12 so he will
serve no time and will be
doing it
again to his girlfriend in the lot in someone
else's car
next Saturday.

Subj: The
History Of Math Word Problems (S59, S587c)
From: pns on 7/3/2003
and
From: AFine963 on 4/16/2008
Teaching Math in 1950:  (traditional
math)
A logger sells a truckload of
lumber for $100. His
cost of production is 4/5 of
the price. What is his
profit?
Teaching Math in 1960:
A logger sells a truckload of
lumber for $100. His
cost of production is 4/5 of
the price, or $80. What
is his profit?
Teaching Math in 1970:  (new
math)
A logger exchanges a set "L"
of lumber for a set "M" of
money. The cardinality
of set "M" is 100. Each element
is worth one dollar. Make
100 dots representing the
elements of the set "M". The
set "C", the cost of
production contains 20 fewer
points than set "M".
Represent the set "C" as a subset
of set "M" and answer
the following question: What
is the cardinality of the
set "P" of profits?
Teaching Math in 1980:
A logger sells a truckload of
lumber for $100. His cost
of production is $80 and his
profit is $20. Your
assignment: Underline the number
20.
Teaching Math in 1990:  (OutcomeBased
education)
By cutting down beautiful forest
trees, the logger makes
$20. What do you think
of this way of making a living?
Topic for class participation
after answering the question:
How did the forest birds and
squirrels feel as the logger
cut down the trees? There are
no wrong answers.
Teaching Math in 1996:
By laying off 40% of its loggers,
a company improves
its stock price from $80 to
$100. How much capital
gain per share does the CEO
make by exercising his
stock options at $80. Assume
capital gains are no longer
taxed, because this encourages
investment.
Teaching Math in 1997:
A company outsources all of
its loggers. They save on
benefits and when demand for
their product is down the
logging work force can easily
be cut back. The average
logger employed by the company
earned $50,000, had 3
weeks vacation, received a nice
retirement plan and
medical insurance. The
contracted logger charges $50 an
hour. Was outsourcing a good
move?
Teaching Math in 1998:
A logging company exports its
woodfinishing jobs to its
Indonesian subsidiary and lays
off the corresponding half
of its US workers (the higherpaid
half). It clearcuts
95% of the forest, leaving the
rest for the spotted owl,
and lays off all its remaining
US workers. It tells the
workers that the spotted owl
is responsible for the absence
of fellable trees and lobbies
Congress for exemption from
the Endangered Species Act.
Congress instead exempts the
company from all federal regulation.
What is the return
on investment of the lobbying
costs?
From: jerry on 3/13/2002
Teaching Math in 2000:
A logger sells a truckload of
lumber for $100. His cost
of production is $120.
How does Arthur Andersen determine
that his profit margin is $60?
From: pns on 7/3/2003

Subj: Chain
Rule For Devision
My friend and colleague, Lynn
Gruner (who teaches BC Calculus
with me at Walt Whitman HS in
Bethesda, MD) has altered the
quotient rule song that we received
some years back. Her
version (sung to OLD MACDONALD'S
FARM) goes like this:
Lodehi less hidelo
EIEIO
Then draw the line and down
below EIEIO
With a dx here and a dy there
Here a slope, yes there's hope,
you can cope
Denominator squared will go
EIEIO
I composed a chain rule "song"
to the tune of Allouette, but
it's too long to be of much
value as a mnemonic. The point
of the song certainly underscores
how the chain rule works,
but it's not one you'd be likely
to remember.

Subj: Proof
That All Numbers Equal Zero And That 1$ = 1c
From: Benjamin.J.Tilly
Theorem : All numbers are equal
to zero.
Proof: Suppose that a=b. Then
a = b
a^2 = ab
a^2  b^2 = ab  b^2
(a + b)(a  b) = b(a  b)
a + b = b
a = 0
Theorem: 1$ = 1c.
Proof:
And another that gives you a
sense of money disappearing...
1$ = 100c
= (10c)^2
= (0.1$)^2
= 0.01$
= 1c
Here $ means dollars and c means
cents. This one is scary
in that I have seen PhD's in
math who were unable to see
what was wrong with this one.
Actually I am crossposting
this to sci.physics because
I think that the latter makes
a very nice introduction to
the importance of keeping track
of your dimensions...

Subj: Equation
About Money, Work, and Knowledge (S45)
From: RobertTompkins on 971206
Engineers and scientists will
never make as much money as
business executives. Now
a rigorous Mathaematical Proof
that explains why this is true:
Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power. Postulate 2: Time is Money.
As every engineer knows,
Work
 = Power
Time
Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have
Work
 = Knowledge
Money
Solving for Money, we get:
Work
 = Money
Knowledge
Thus, as Knowledge approaches
zero, Money approaches infinity
regardless of the Work done.
Conclusion: The Less you Know, the more you Make.
Note: It has been speculated
that the reason Bill Gates
dropped out of Harvard's math
program was because he
stumpbled upon this proof as
an undergraduate.

Subj: Formulas
For Work, Knowledge And Money (2ed Vers.)
From: Amy's Humor Archive on 06/27/97
After applying some simple algebra
to some trite phrases
and cliches, a new understanding
can be reached of the
secret to wealth and success.
Here it goes.
Knowledge is Power
Time is Money and as everyone
knows, Power is Work divided
by Time.
So, substituting algebraic equations
for these time worn
bits of wisdom,
we get:
K = P
(1)
T = M
(2)
P = W/T
(3)
Now, do a few simple substitutions:
Put W/T in
for P in equation (1), which yields:
K = W/T
(4)
Put M in for T into equation (4), which yields:
K = W/M (5).
Now we've got something. Expanding back into English, we get:
Knowledge equals Work divided by Money.
What this MEANS is that:
1. The More
You Know, the More Work You Do,
and
2. The More
You Know, the Less Money You Make.
3. The Less you Know, the More you Make.
Solving for Money, we get:
M = W/K (6)
Money equals Work divided by Knowledge.
From equation (6) we see that
Money approaches infinity as
Knowledge approaches 0, regardless
of the Work done.
What THIS MEANS is:
The More you Make, the Less you Know.
Solving for Work, we get
W = M x K
(7)
Work equals
Money times Knowledge
From equation (7) we see that
Work approaches 0 as
Knowledge approaches 0.
What THIS MEANS is:
The stupid rich do little or no work.
Working out the socioeconomic
implications of this
breakthrough is left as an exercise
for the reader.

Subj: Proof
That Girls Are Evil (S224)
From: One of Chris Guinon's students 5/15/01
We all know that girls take time and money
Girls = time x money
and we know that time is money
time = money
Therefore girls = money x money or (money)^{2}
^{ }Now we all know money is the root of all evil
money = square root(evil)
so girls = ( square root(evil) )^{2}
Therefore girls = evil

Subj: Other
Proofs
From: clubok
Here's my personal favorite:
Use integration by parts to
find the antiderivative of 1/x.
One can get the amusing result
that 0=1. (Until you realize
you have to put in the limits.)
From: kdq
Theorem: 4 = 5
Proof:
16  36 = 25  45
4^2  9*4 = 5^2  9*5
4^2  9*4 + 81/4 = 5^2  9*5
+ 81/4
(4  9/2)^2 = (5  9/2)^2
4  9/2 = 5  9/2
4 = 5
From: julison
Theorem: All numbers are equal.
Proof:
Choose arbitrary a and b, and
let t = a + b. Then
a + b = t
(a + b)(a  b) = t(a  b)
a^2  b^2 = ta  tb
a^2  ta = b^2  tb
a^2  ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2  tb
+ (t^2)/4
(a  t/2)^2 = (b  t/2)^2
a  t/2 = b  t/2
a = b
So all numbers are the same,
and math is pointless.
