comment Are there an infinite set of sets that only have one element in common with each other?
@Oltarus: Perhaps you can count them, to see if they are actually 50 - and not count on the manufacturer's word.

A related question (about the same game) at Math.SE: What is the math behind the game Spot It? and at SO: What are the mathematical/computational principles behind this game?

comment What's behind Conway's Game of Life search algorithms?
@DariusGoad: It's not what many (or few) people think but what the Law says. The Terms of Service were written mostly caring about the Law. And while it may or may not be a good measure of maturity, it's very acccurate and provable.

comment Help find hard integrals that evaluate to $59$?
Is that $$\ln(x^2)$$ or $$(\ln x)^2$$ ?

comment Probability involving unique group combinations
It's not at all clear what is being asked here. Please try to explain better.

comment What are some examples of a mathematical result being counterintuitive?
+1 for the Banach-Tarski paradox, it's the first that came to mind when read the question. I think that it is counter-intuitive because intuition would tell that any 3d object has volume. But no well-defined volume can be assigned to these pieces.

comment Confused about modular notations
@curiou57: Yes, because a ≡ b (mod m) and b ≡ a (mod m) are equivalent.

@Charles: You are wrong. The equations listed make prefect sense. This is a very common notation in Number Theory books.

@bnaul: They are not equivalent. 3 ≡ 11 (mod 8) is true but 3 mod 8 = 11 is false.
