2+2=5?

Recommended Posts

sadly i've forgotten the way to make 2+2=5. i remember it is a complex calculus equation though...

there's an easy way if you're a computer programmer

 

print (int)2.6 + (int)2.6 = (int)(2.6 + 2.6)

 

what the (int) does is makes it only use the integer part of the number, ie (int)2.6 comes out as 2, and (int)5.2 comes out as 5

That just means he knows how to program :)

 

Integers (or int's) are numbers without a decimal place. Programming languages have integers, but because they cannot contain decimals, the use of casting ( (int)2.5 for example) is necessary for the code to compile; as 2.5 is not an integer :P

btw is that BASIC? decided i should probably learn programing and the print command kinda has led me to believe it is.

casting from int = c/c++ =)

Please note that not all languages allow you to assign what type of string/number/char they are...for example BASH shells cripting :P But..you can always strip otu everythign past .blablabla ...

 

Not being able to assign variable types can be both good and bad in programing/scripting :S It can simplify thigns, yet make them much harder in another way.

 

I'm curiouse about that calculus equation he mentioned...mmm

 

EDIT: Before someoen starts arguing with me...yes variables are one type or another in BASH and other languages that do variables like it, BUT you can't make it so that your variable will be an interger, char, string, etc no matter what like you can wiht C/C++ .

Ummmm, thats because its a type-less SCRIPTING language....o,0

 

 

Zep: casting FROM an int? you mean from a double or float....:icon13: Also, that could have been Java, but I doubt tt would be brave enough :)

first year and a half at uni here... java. only now are we finally doing some C++ (w/ QT)

I know it's valid in any of those languages and possibly others though

So far I've only found this site, but the calculations don't get more complex than "when a 2-knot rope is put together with another 2-knot rope, a 5-knot rope results", and 2 + 2 is more like 5 than 4, because by "putting 2 male rabbits plus 2 female rabbits in the same cage, he ended up with considerably more than 4 rabbits". :P:)

I have a friend who has taken Calc 2 and says that it is possible to make 1 = 2 but it requires dividing by 0. I don't understand much of anything when he talks about math...
