comment Why is the limit of a sequence not included in the sequence?
Are you looking at Y approaching 1.1 as x approaches 2?

comment Probability Equation That I am missing here
@Adam - There are times that an 'extreme' example helps clarify a situation. Say you have 1000 coin flips. The results form a nice bell curve of all the possible HT combinations. Chances of 1000H0T is near zero, but appears as a result, as does 499H501T, etc. The chance of 500H500T actually feels pretty slim to me. In fact, it's about 1 in 40. calculator.tutorvista.com/coin-toss-probability-calculator.html is a calculator to play with the numbers.

See my edit. Does that help? Read up on Pascal's Triangle.

comment What are the uses of Euler's number $e$?
Can you link the text "parameterize the unit hyperbola" to a source describing what you mean?

By definition, all sides of a cube are equal, does that hint help you?

comment How do you Compute $7^{1000} \mod 24$?
So $7^{N}$ 24 modulos (is it a verb?) to N/2 which solves pretty fast. That was the thought, right?

comment Prove that a triangle that has two congruent angles is isosceles
@eChung00 - since a triangle only has 3 angles, AAS is in effect, saying ASA. Right? If two angles are congruent, the third must me. I suppose louie should state that for an elegant proof, but it's correct.

comment If I flip a coin 100 times, why do the results trend towards 50-50?
I was going to suggest an understanding of Pascal's Triangle would really answer this question.

Why do expect anything other than 111.001 ?
