1. ## Mousetrap cars

Haha! thanks for the advice. i've had my share of un expected snaps on my fingers. not the greatest thing to endure.
2. ## Mousetrap cars

Yeah your supplied with one, and we were only allowed to use one. :/
3. ## Mousetrap cars

Yes. sorry i didn't explain that. the mousetrap is attached to a string which is wrapped around an axle, it's to make the car move. not to catch a mouse
4. ## Artificial Intelligence

It doesn't matter matter if it's based on our brains, theres nobody who mastered in creative writing, mechanical engineering, history, Music and Arts..so on.. but yet, with a Computer, there is an unlimited amount of learning that can be programmed in to it. Now then again, I doubt that a computer could come up with theory's the way that the human mind does. They simply don't have the creativity that we do, and that's something you can't program in to a computer.
5. ## Mousetrap cars

I was recently confronted with the challenge of making a "mousetrap car." The rules were simple, make a functional car using a few slabs of balsa wood some copper bars used as axles and CD's as wheels (and of course a mousetrap.) My group used a fairly simple design, simply cut out 3 pieces of balsa, two were long rectangles, about 2 inches by 10 inches. these were put on the sides of the car and glued to a 4 inch by 8 inch piece of balsa (which was put on top of the car, so it had a top and two sides, the top did not fully reach the length of the sides, we then had the idea of using only thre
6. ## .99999 repeating = 1?

Yes i agree it seems illogical. but all these formulas add up . and sure you can add something with infinite numbers by ten. just imagine setting it up like you set up any multiplication problem 10 .9 9 so therefore 10 .99 9.9 and... 10 .999 9.99 and so on...(which would be 9.9999 infinite)
7. ## .99999 repeating = 1?

no, .999999999 doesnt equal zero .999999 repeating does. you seem to have forgotten the infinite after the .999...... So think about it. .33333333 repeating equals 1/3 1/3 times 3 equals one. .33333333 repeating equals .9999999 repeating therefore, .9999999 repeating = 1 ..in theory..
