System Architect / Senior Software Developer in Calgary, Alberta. Consulting on various projects, mostly with a .Net or classic ASP background. I've been developing Web applications and Websites for over a decade now ranging from using a propietary markup and ISAPI extensions(C/C++) to Classic ASP(VBScript) to ASP.Net(C# 1.0/1.1/2.0/3.5/4.0/MVC) I enjoy solving puzzles such as Sudoku and mysteries. My previous work involves using various Agile practices,e.g. Scrum and pair-programming, on a CMS project within an IS department's web development group.

I enjoy sharing what I've experienced, learned or think may be worth sharing with the world.

comment Why does base*height work?
Yes as there is something to be said for which shapes are you wanting to consider: Rectangles, parallelograms, squares?

comment Why does base*height work?
That formula is only true of specific shapes as circles, triangles and a few other shapes would not work with that formula you do realize, right?

comment Trailing zeroes on factorial?
Since $10=5*2$, why not look at how many times will $5$ occur as a factor in the product? That would be my hint for you.

comment Why aren't my % Changes additive?
The values for "This Year" and "Last Year" don't have A+B=C either you know.

comment How do I find the critical values to find the maximum of this function?
Shouldn't the $10y$ be $10y^2$? Just wondering if that is a typo.

comment What exactly is a number?
How do we get $\pi$ or $e$ from your definitions? These are numbers that aren't expressible without bringing in some elements that make numbers be a bit conceptual you do realize, right?

comment Needing help with this problem
For the first expression, are you wanting maximum, minimum or both? Also, what is the domain of x and y: Real or Complex?

I believe you're missing a factor of 75: 15.

comment Please help with absolute value $|x^2 - 3x| = 28$
You do realize that if the expression in the absolute value equals -28 that would also be a solution, right?

comment Is my equation result correct?
Yes this is a single linear equation in one variable. However, tags may change over time for one side while also being that some may see this as an elementary school Math problem.

Have you looked at sites like mathsisfun.com/positive-negative-integers.html? They have some explanations that may be worth reading first.

comment difference between n - 1 and n-1
The subtraction operation can also be conveyed by the term "difference" may be something else to note here.

comment What do I not understand about one-to-one functions?
The point on $x^2$ and $x^3$ is correct and the last one now corrected is right.

comment What do I not understand about one-to-one functions?
The definition of a function makes $f(x)$ give a unique value. However, there may exist $y$ different from x, such that $f(x)=f(y)$. For example, consider the absolute value function which has the same function value for 1 and -1. In the graph of a function, injective functions would be the "horizontal line" test.
