    The definitive answer to CFury's Saturday Night Math problem

     

    is "maybe".

    I recall a professor who would ask yes or no questions meant to exploit training in a limited field and have students jump to conclusions based on their (to date) narrow experience. If you answered his "yes or no" question with a "yes or no" you got it wrong.

    Unlike that professor I suspect Cfury did not know his needed more parameters to answer. Based on his previous responses on math I strongly he is that person with limited training and narrow experience who assumes what applies in specific cases he is exposed to applies all the time.

    That is, for example, CFury is to math like a LPN is to the hospital staff, perhaps important and even needed as long as not exceeding the training level obtained but certainly not prepared to lecture the surgeons, i.e. like a tooth on a gear but not a gear.
