I had salad minus potato salad and croutons to be healthy.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 07:00 PM

Osc I don't understand?

nonperson 08-01-2020 07:00 PM

Aw no croutons. =/

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 07:01 PM

I don't have any ketchup either or I would have had that

Very healthy lindsay!

one_step_closer 08-01-2020 07:01 PM

Tamo I usually have potato salad and croutons when I have salad but I just had ham and lots of veg and beans this time.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 07:03 PM

Sounds healthy. I hate salad in general.

one_step_closer 08-01-2020 07:21 PM

It's better if you have mayo or something with it.

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 07:26 PM

er- whats a fajita?

Eska 08-01-2020 07:28 PM

Evening everyone

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 07:29 PM

evening Eska!

how are you today?

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 07:29 PM

I can tolerate salad but it has to have a dressing

A fajita is like a wrap with chicken and usually vegetables and seasoning. And salsa and sour cream. That's how I do them anyway!
Oddly enough, an advert for fajitas just came on TV!

Hey eska

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 07:31 PM

their reading our minds!!

thanks C

Eska 08-01-2020 07:35 PM

Hi Shira and Beckie :)

I'm ok, today has been full on and I still have stuff to organise so all a bit hectic here.

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 07:40 PM

hopefully it eases up, what are you doing now?

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 07:41 PM

YES! i've waited so long for the end of the school day to be here! i only have 20 minutes left and if i have mathcounts today then an extra hour but i don't mind mathcounts, its fun and feels "welcoming" like RYL ^^ and all of you guys! ^^

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 07:53 PM

what are you guys doing right now?

Eska 08-01-2020 08:05 PM

Right now I'm having a break and making a list of stuff to do/pack before I go away on Friday.

nonperson 08-01-2020 08:05 PM

What on Earth is mathcounts? You have funny names for things. It's nice you enjoy it though. =)

I'm... trying to find something to watch. Settled for Friends at the moment.

nonperson 08-01-2020 08:05 PM

Oooh where you off to, Eska?

Eska 08-01-2020 08:17 PM

France! It's exciting but also has totally snuck up on me so I am not remotely prepared. Oh well!

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 08:17 PM

I'm having a herbal tea to help me relax before bed. My sister has put on the show jumping which is quite soothing too.

nonperson 08-01-2020 08:19 PM

Eska, I'm sure you're more prepared than you think. =)

Pasta has made me feel sleepy.

Eska 08-01-2020 08:27 PM

Eh I have insurance and everything sorted, it is just the physical dumping of things in a bag that I need to do, so not too bad.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 08:29 PM

Our fajitas were tasty but I had to have a tonne of yoghurt.

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 09:00 PM

enjoy France, Eska!! i want to go there at somepoint

hey np? mathcounts is basically where we do extra math for fun which is REALLY advanced usually

A segment with endpoints G(-2, 3) and H(4, 7) is dilated by a scale factor of 2/3 with center of dilation (0, 0). What is the sum of all the coordinates of G’ and H’?

i'm really bad at explaining so i hope that made sense >.<

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 09:04 PM

I understood none of that but that's not because you're bad at explaining, I'm just reeealllyy bad at maths

nonperson 08-01-2020 09:07 PM

I'm sure you explained it fine, Shira! I have no idea what any of that meant either. I'm pretty sure we never covered that sort of stuff even by age 16 in maths... and I was in the top set too. =/

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 09:16 PM

yup, do you get what mathcounts is though? the problem was just to show what our normal problems look like

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 09:16 PM

i have to go, see you guys later!

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 09:17 PM

My brother would probably be able to do it
He's doing a chemistry masters so is super clever

See you later shirayuki!

nonperson 08-01-2020 09:23 PM

Mathcounts is difficult maths problems for fun! =P See you later!

I think I lost all my smartness. =(

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 09:29 PM

Me too np.
What limited amount I had!

nonperson 08-01-2020 09:31 PM

Aw I'm sure you had lots of smartness.

And now I feel old and past it. *sulk*

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 09:39 PM

I used to be good at Maths but never did it for fun.

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 09:49 PM

I was good at English and biology but that was about it
What were your favourite subjects?

Eska 08-01-2020 09:59 PM

I used to do maths stuff for fun! There was a thing called Maths Challenge, and also an inter-school maths championship? I was on the team for that. Oh and I did some masterclasses at a university. I enjoyed it! I’d happily do more.

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 10:02 PM

Very odd :p

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 10:03 PM

I liked languages. At school I only carried French on to A Level but my favourite was Latin, until I went to uni.

nonperson 08-01-2020 10:05 PM

I think I remember Maths Challenge...? It's ringing a bell.

I used to like art.

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 10:24 PM

Do you remember much of it tamo?

I liked art too np
I did some of an art GCSE

tamobhuuta 08-01-2020 10:29 PM

I remember bits of it

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 10:39 PM

I can still count to 100 in German
That's basically all I remember
And can count to 10 in Italian

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 10:40 PM

i failed art every time XD

maths challenge is basically mathcounts ^^

don't say that Beckie! i'm definitely sure you were VERY smart, you to np! i'm the stupid one, you guys are smart XD

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 10:40 PM

i love languages too!

Cacoethes 08-01-2020 10:47 PM

Doubt you are stupid if you can do that kind of maths!

Right I'm off to bed now guys
Good night!

Shirayuki 08-01-2020 10:50 PM

good night! fingers crossed for a good night! ^^

i am VERY stupid, the only math i can do is

Let p Ꝋ q = √(p2 - q2), and let p Ꚛ q = √(p2 + q2). What is the value of (3 Ꚛ 4) Ꚛ (20 Ꝋ 16)?


The sequence an is defined by a1 = 20, a2 = 19 and for n ≥ 3, an = |an-1| ─ |an-2|. What is the value of a2019?


Eliza creates a custom 6-sided die by randomly choosing six distinct integers from 1 to 7, inclusive, to paint onto the sides of a blank cube. She tells Philip that the faces of her die have a sum of 24. Philip rolls the die. What is the probability that Philip’s die shows a prime number on the top face? Express your answer as a common fraction.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2020 08:35 AM
