Re: maths question
Hold on... So can you just remind me, how what time did the bus leave the depot and how fast did it drive?

Re: maths question
showed it to a pilot mate that flies 747s, he went with a completely different method, but took 10 mins max, to come up with the answer. 49 nIcE

Re: maths question
Are we looking for a bus with number X + 15 which follows a square route, the length of which is equal to 15 miles minus the length of the route of bus 15, which also follows a square route? I could answer this if I knew of a city where the 15 bus has a square route.

Re: maths question
148 sounds like "one for hate". 32 obviously rhymes with Jew and 13 is "unlucky for some". Put them all together and what do you Get? The polular catchphrase "I hate those lucky Jews" Where can I apply to be the new host of 321?

Re: maths question
Now turn those numbers into letters, using a method that will elicit a well known catchphrase. The answer will leave you STUNNED

Oh I see. The sqr of x has to be a minus, which is impossible.

Re: maths question
The answer is 15. Rearrange the equation (/15 + 15 - 15)^2 = (/15)^2 = 15

Re: maths question
Opps just tried from the beginning putting 15 back in as x (Sqr15 +15) + sqr15 = 15 And it does not work None of the answers here work It looks impossible as you need sqr x to give a negative number which I think is impossible Either Master is correct and Silver got the question wrong or Iron is right and it is just bollocks

Re: maths question
But if we substitute 15 for x into the original equation it equals 15 +2sqr15 (Sqr 15 + 15) + sqr 15 = 15+2sqr15 so it can't be that. You are right that this question is bollocks in the format it's been given.
