I am a Christian. Although I have an abiding interest in science and philosophy, I view things from a distinctly Christian vantage point, which harmonizes human well-being with what we know of the natural world.

Here's a nice quote I came across:

"The spectacle of the universe seems all the more grand and beautiful and worthy of its Author, when one considers that it is all derived from a small number of laws laid down most wisely." -Maupertuis, 1746

comment How do I calculate the quartiles for this problem?
There is some confusion between the answers by EpicGuy and Sim. My source agrees with the former, while the quartiles calculator at alcula.com/calculators/statistics/quartiles agrees with the latter. I would appreciate it if someone could resolve this.

Your answer doesn't agree with the other answer posted by EpicGuy. It also doesn't agree with my original source from where I took the problem. I like your method, but the other answer is the correct one. I'd like to know how to get the correct answer using this method. Could you please double-check this? Thanks.

comment Intersection point of 2 circles
Sorry, what I meant was, you substitute out whatever's possible using the 2nd equation. So, for example, you could substitute using $x^2+y^2=100$ in the remaining equation, and the $x^2$ and $y^2$ terms disappear.
