My linear algebra class instructor has the heaviest Chinese (I think) accent I've ever heard in my life. I can't understand a single word she says. So yeah... Foreign accents.

I'd have to say that my favorite number is i. I mean, it doesn't even really exist, and at the same time it does! e is a pretty interesting number as well, seeing as at any point the derivative of e^x is actually equal to e^x. As for my third favorite number, it's a tie between Avogadro's number (around 6.02 x10^23) because chemistry is always fun, or 9.8 because gravity is a nice thing to have around.

This one time, a guy posted in the wrong forum section. He looked like such a fool. Little did he know that off-topic was for discussing things that aren't related to Minecraft.

I have absolutely no idea what any of those questions meant. All I can do here is choose at random. I tried to answer the first and second, and the results were obviously very flawed. Can someone explain this to me?

Basically what you're doing is dividing by [(1/3)(pi)(r^2)] on both sides.

Start with the equation for volume.

V = (1/3)(pi)(r^2)(h)

What you have to do is isolate h, which means converting everything to the right of the equals sign (except h) to 1. You can do this by just dividing everything you want to remove. Just like 9/9 = 1 or 5/5 = 1, [(1/3)(pi)(r^2)]/[(1/3)(pi)(r^2)] = 1. To keep the equation correct, you have to do that procedure on both sides of the equals sign.

You get the following:

V/[(1/3)(pi)(r^2)] = 1 h

The 1 on the right of the equals sign is basically meaningless, so you can ignore it.

V/[(1/3)(pi)(r^2)] = h

If you look on the left of the equals sign, you'll notice you're dividing by 1/3. You can change that to say you're multiplying by 3. It's nicer that way.

3V/[(pi)(r^2)] = h

Flip it around, because that also looks nicer, and you end up with...

Maybe if you just worded your question as if you were older than 12, people would take you more seriously. I mean, you don't need to bring out the capslock and gratuitous amounts of exclamation marks for a tech support problem. No, you save that for your 12 year old dating problems.

I'm not sure of the word, but I feel exactly as you do about this.

h = 3V/[(pi)(r^2)]

Does that make any sense?
