### And math has the last laugh...

Turns out, I do need high school algebra (but then, I am using it to explain the concept of the treasure map as related to "plot" [the action of the novel and charting of the map] in Dumas, Stevenson, and Joyce - so it IS for literature!)...

New dating & marriage technique:

I will marry the first man (or woman) who can tell me the NAME of this algebraic theory:

if a = b, and b = c, then a = c.

Tessa - I liked the other challenge much better - would take a romantic individual to know it. This one you should have been given with more care. Any geek like myself could come up with the answer (and - I DID).

PS - Ask Holly!

My apologies - as I am certainly not remotely available!

On another note - it is nice to see you return to the blog world. Shot and sweet is as nice as long and elaborate.

Hey, I got this one (step aside, Kari). You're referring to the transitive property.

Though I'd argue that this is more of a logic theory. Modus Ponens or other. Either way..

I win! :D

How did I miss this blog before?

gah, the only algebraic theorem i know and i was TOO LATE.

Alright Rannier, I'll give you this one, but I just have to point out what Tom said - that the other challenge "would take a romantic individual to know it."

I'm more romantic!! ;D (though me being a woman does make you more Tessa's type so I guess you still win. ha! ;D)
