i do not understand
this is really fucking me up how is it moving and staying in the same place fuck you all
fuck off fuck off fuck off
Today Google celebrates Shakuntala Devi’s 84th birthday. She was popularly known as the “Human Computer”, was a child prodigy, and mental calculator. She passed away on April 21 2013, she was 83 years old. Her achievements include:
- In 1977 in the USA she competed with a computer to see who could calculate the cube root of 188,132,517 faster (she won). That same year, at the Southern Methodist University she was asked to give the 23rd root of a 201-digit number; she answered in 50 seconds. Her answer—546,372,891—was confirmed by calculations done at the U.S. Bureau of Standards by the Univac 1101 computer, for which a special program had to be written to perform such a large calculation.
- On June 18, 1980, she demonstrated the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers 7,686,369,774,870 × 2,465,099,745,779 picked at random by the Computer Department of Imperial College, London. She correctly answered 18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730 in 28 seconds. This event is mentioned in the 1982 Guinness Book of Records.
Happy birthday Shakuntala!
The GIF above is an animation of a fractal tree, one of the simplest fractals! (simple meaning you can actually draw it without computer aid)
The basis of a fractal is a pattern repeating itself. Sometimes looking exactly the same no matter how close you zoom in on a chosen area. The most popular example of this being the Mandelbrot Fractal. (look up a video of the fractal, you can stare at it for hours — it’ll still be the same)
"Beautiful, damn hard, increasingly useful, thats fractals." - Pierre Mandelbrot
This is a tesseract. Which is known as the 3 dimensional shadow of what a cube existing within 4 dimensions would look like. The tesseract is shown in a virtually 3-dimensional state in the GIF, and in 2-dimensional state in the bottom image.
It is really really hard to imagine the 4th dimension, living within 3 dimensions so the tesseract gives us the best representation we can imagine with our human brains.

when math and nature meet it can be kinda really cool
Proof of the Pythagoras Theorem.
My math teacher showed us this in 8th grade and I thought I’d seen god
shit math guys. never thought any would make it to my blog
i spent 5 minutes looking at this picture i found on my dash trying to figure it out and i’m just even more confused than i was 5 minutes ago
this is too confusing
get this math off my dash this is just frustrating me
Mathematical Fun Fact: 10-183,000
The value of this infinitesimally small number can be appreciated by this: The number is a rough estimate of the probability that a monkey, placed in front of a typewriter and provided with adequate food, breaks, and sleep throughout the process, will fully and accurately type the entire script of Hamlet on the first try. However, this is just considering the letters on their own. If you’d like to be more technical; taking punctuation, capitalization, and spacing into account, the actual probability of the monkey typing Hamlet is less: around 10−360,783.
For my more mathematically read followers, this may strike you as the Infinite Monkey Theorem.
Your plan has now been foiled. MWAHAHA
MATH HUMOR IS THE BEST.
