My friends call me "Mac". I'm a master of improvisation. I have vast scientific knowledge and unique abilities to use ordinary objects to get myself and friends out of trouble. I typically carry my Swiss Army knife and a roll of duct tape with me at all times. I dislike guns because of a traumatic childhood incident. I try to avoid violence whenever possible. Because my life was getting too stressful at the Phoenix Foundation, I have picked up programming as a new career. I spend my spare time on Stack Overflow.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around these. :-) I'm not a mathematician.

comment Easiest way to determine graph formula to predict disk space growth
Thanks so much. I recognize that site from a TED Talk I watched months ago. The last time I took a math course was 2004, so I'm a little rusty.

comment Easiest way to determine graph formula to predict disk space growth
I'm not a mathematician, so I don't know what function to start with. Given the 3 points I have so far, what is the simplest way to approach this and determine a graph function? I don't need a high level of accuracy.

As Maverick's father says, "I believe ya". :-) Is an integral, the area of an arbitrarily large finite count of two perpendicular sets of sticks?

I'm not even sure what tag to add for an algebra proof.

+1 .. I'll mark an answer in a few days. I want to see what some other mathematics think of. Thank you! Very cool! This looks a bit like an algebra proof (not a geometry proof), but I'm not criticizing. Haha! Kidding.
