Pondering on one of life's great problems.

How can you ever add together the area of two circles and hope to get a true answer.

(It's not a trick question, but it comes close)

But how would you do it by hand ?

Rather, why can't you do it by hand ?

dejanmikic,

Sorry, I can't resolve whatever it was you posted. Do you have a link?

I would say everyone on the board is rooting for you, but that means something different in Australia.
I appreciate everyone's messages of support. I prefer not to try to open it up, suffice to say I'm confident of a shift in fortunes in time. One must maintain a positive outlook, especially at times such as these. Never give up.

Re the 'adding the area of two circles' thing I posted above.

The actual reason is that as Pi appear to go onto infinity, it has no 'right hand' final digit.

And when we add numbers we start at the right hand side. But there is no right hand side in this case.

Guess I'll just have to make do with 16 decimal place.
