 Sep10 awarded Famous Question Nov27 comment Dividing a range into major and minor divisions I tried the scheme on for size and it works pretty well, thanks. It hadn't occurred to me that the number of variations was small enough to practically enumerate, and with this scheme certain "unpleasing" combos can be eliminated if desired, just by altering the table. Nov27 accepted Dividing a range into major and minor divisions Nov27 comment Dividing a range into major and minor divisions I'll have to think about this one. I like the idea that, since everything is precomputed, it's inherently stable and testable. Nov27 asked Dividing a range into major and minor divisions Nov2 awarded Notable Question Aug27 comment Why are “irrational numbers” not named “nonrational numbers”? Because to do so would be irrational. Aug22 answered What does “calculus” mean in the most general sense? Aug22 comment What does “calculus” mean in the most general sense? Ask a dentist and he'll tell you it's the gunky buildup on your teeth. Aug22 comment Is there name for arithmetic mean divided by RMS average? CV appears to relate mean to standard deviation, and I'm taking the ratio of mean and RMS average, which is not quite the same thing. Aug22 revised Is there name for arithmetic mean divided by RMS average? added 99 characters in body Aug22 comment Is there a reasoning behind the depiction of the numbers as they are $\{1$, $2$, $3$, $4$, $5$, $6$, $7$, $8$, $9\}$? I was always given to understand that the Babylonians had something to do with it. But I see Wikipedia lays most of the "blame" on the Hindu-Arabic numeral system. (According to that article using zero came fairly late in the evolution of the system.) Aug22 asked Is there name for arithmetic mean divided by RMS average?

But there's an issue with the quality metrics I probably didn't explain very well -- I'll do that.
