May17 comment Deleting $n$ points from a connected space @GrumpyParsnip It suffices to take $n=1$. May17 comment Deleting $n$ points from a connected space If we remove the "each of which is homemorphic to $X$" condition, the long line is such a space. May16 answered Why can't you add apples and oranges, but you can multiply and divide them? May16 comment Area of a part of a square @Maroon We can do a little better than that, with $L^2\in (18,26)$. It seems to me that $A$ should be unique, since choosing the central point provides two degrees of freedom while we are given three values, but I can't prove it off the top of my head. May16 revised Area of a part of a square made more rigorous and formal May16 comment Can the norm of a non-algebraic integer be an integer? When you say non-algebraic integer, do you mean an algebraic element of the extension which is not an algebraic integer? May16 comment Breaking even: is there a point where you can always profit? @nononono $\frac{9}{2}=1+y=1+\frac{7}{2}$. May16 comment Conditional Random Variable and Iterated Expectation @sandra Here $A$ is not a random variable, it is an event. May16 revised PUGS is a rectangle. If the equation of PU is $y=\frac{2}{3x} + 4$. What is the slope of SP? fixed error introduced by previous edit
