Day 97: Mind block

In analyzing some data from work, I found myself trying to solve a 3rd order polynomial equation.  Yikes...I don't remember anything from highschool math!  In the end, I found a way around my problem....I simplified my data set, and voila!  Didn't have to delve into higher order algebra!   


  1. Wow, I like Math but I don't think I could get my mind around all that. Nice composition.

  2. Excel to the rescue! :-)

    Funny how today's students say "when am I ever going to use this (insert math problem here) in real life?" Probably more than they imagine!

  3. Reading that made my brain hurt. :)
