# Problem #3

3: Find x

Solution: x = 5

a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}

a=3

b=4

c=x

3^{2} + 4^{2} = x^{2}

9+16 = x^{2}

25 = x^{2}

sqrt(25) = x

5 = x

x = 5

Well, the question did not state "give the value of x".

Yes. I liked Prony's answer. It showed creativity and an certain amount of Smart Ass. "Find x", "It's Here! -->" lol

Well, it is not my answer. There is a whole exam paper full of those type of ansvers. I'll see if I can put the link up.

Found them via Digg

I like the

n sin x = six = 6

There are some more at :

And the file I got the picture from

It said "3. Find x"

Holy crap you guys make my head hurt :P LOL

a2 + b2 = c2

a=3

b=4

c=x

By Pythagorean theorem -- 3-4-5 triple

x=5

using less lines! :P -- Curious, why did you post this?

I was bored, and the picture for the Math Group was this problem, so I solved it. Boredom is the spice of life :-P

slaps head... haha :P

You forgot your units -5 points, ;=)
