1. ## precalculus

You set the choice and I chose one. It was a simple answer. What are you looking for? When I went to school algebra was hugh school and calculus was college.

precalculus
3. ## I would like to have a debate with someone that claims math is 'real'

'Math is not real. It is an art form created to explain something' How do you define real? Meanwhile 1+1=2 is true, whether or not the universe exists. You need to separate mathematics from application.
4. ## algebra

Algebra is used to solve quadratic equations.
5. ## Chatgpt dialog

Same question to Bingchat. Answer was full circle (incircle). Refused to do semi-circle.

7. ## AI is Dumb!

Problem is analytic geometry. First set picture. a on bottom diameter resting on on a. Other sides are tangent to arc, needed for max semicircle. Complete picture by radii to tangent points. Note that radii are perpendicular to sides. Let x be distance from angle B to diameter center. Equations are: r=xsin(B) and r=(a-x)sin(C). leading to x=asin(C)/(sin(B)+sin(C)) and r=asin(B)sin(C)/(sin(B)+sin(C)). Neater form x=ac/(b+c) and r =sin(A)bc/(b+c). Note: Nither angle B or C are obtuse. Example if C obtuse then r=a-x for second equation.
8. ## AI is Dumb!

following was asked of bingchat and chatcpt. Both gave wrong answers. Any thoughts? ---------------------- Geometry problem: Semi-circle inside triangle: Triangle with known length sides a, b, c where a is the longest. Place inside the triangle a semi-circle with entire diameter resting on side a, which is horizontal. The arc of the semicircle is maximum possible inside the triangle. Known - triangle dimensions. Unknown r (semi-circle arc radius) and x (distance along a from left end of a to center of diameter). Find equations for r and x In terms of all possible triangles.
9. ## How does ChatGPT work?

After a career involving computer program development, I feel that AI systems are very fast dumb programs.
10. ## How does ChatGPT work?

Following to chatGPT - answer was triangle inradius, NOT semicirvle radius/ Why? ------------------------------------------------------------------ -Geometry problem: Semi-circle inside triangle: Triangle with known length sides a, b, c where a is the longest. Place inside the triangle a semi-circle with diameter resting on side a. What is semicircle radius of largest possible semi-circle in terms of side lengths? Position of diameter center along a? -------------------------------------------
11. ## How does ChatGPT work?

I tried ChatGPT and chatBing with the following: Geometry problem: Semi-circle inside triangle: Triangle with known length sides a, b, c where a is the longest. Place inside the triangle a semi-circle with diameter resting on side a. What is semicircle radius of largest possible semi-circle in terms of side lengths? Position of diameter center along a? Neither worked - chatGPT gave no answer, while chatBing got it wrong.
12. ## How does ChatGPT work?

I gave it another (simple) question - list all Pythagorean triplts with c ltss than 50. Among the answes I got was (47,1,47).
13. ## How does ChatGPT work?

Posed the following and got no answer: Geometry problem: Semi-circle inside triangle: Triangle with known length sides a, b, c where a is the longest. Place inside the triangle a semi-circle with diameter on side a. What is radius of largest possible semi-circle in terms of side lengths? Position of diameter center along a?
14. ## trigonometry

You could ask what's the purpose of anything in mathematics?
15. ## Cool discovery I discovered

Looks like a lot of meaningless wordplay.
16. ## Mathematics is Inconsistent!

The paradox is in pure mathematics. A physical object cannot be decomposed into non-measurable pieces.
17. ## Million equivalent in different !base-10 system ?

The base doesn't matter. It'a \\;s a language issue. What is big?

19. ## Distance conversion

Look for 'distance converter on line. Pick one.

F=1.8C+32.

C=5(F-32)/9

23. ## wormholes and warp drives

Where did you get these ideas?
24. ## Applications of 4 fundamental forces

Strong and weak forces are microscopic - no control? Gravity is affected by moving stuff around.
25. ## Is math really just counting one and two?

You seem to be jumping from math ro physics. Math starts with arithmetic, next elementary algebra, plane geometry, etc. From your description you need a start at the very beginning.
