Euler's polyhedron formula 2016-05-20
From Antonia:
why does not cylinders follow Euler's polyhedron formula ( V-E+F=2) ?? if a cylinder has 3 faces, 2 edges and 0 vertices it doesn't follow Euler's formula???

We have 2 teams of 6 couples each that play 6 games 2013-01-25
From Denise:
We put together a game night where we have 2 teams of 6 couples each that play 6 games. We haven't been able to figure out an arrangement that allows each couple to play each game with a different couple from the opposite team (i.e. Team A couples play every game with a different couple from Team B). Is this possible? It works with 2 teams of 5 couples each.

I started with Euler's identity and manipulated it 2011-11-14
From anonymous:
I started with Euler's identity and manipulated it
e^i*pi=-1
e^-i*pi=(-1)^-1
e^-i*pi=-1
e^-i*i*pi=(-1)^i
e^--pi=(-1)^i
e^pi=(-1)^i
type it in in a calculator and you get e^pi=23.1406926... and (-1)^i=0.0432139183... What did I do wrong?

A mythical soccer ball 2011-10-27
From Joel:
We've been working on this problem diligently and can't seem to come up with the answer book's answer. We think it may be wrong, yet want to check it with an expert. Here goes. The school's new soccer balls are covered with 64 regular hexagonal panels. Each hexagon measures 2 inches between opposite corners and 1.5 inches between opposite sides. What is the total surface area of the soccer ball?

i^i 2010-11-21
From trale:
Can we use e^ix=cosx+isinx for finding i^i like that: x= pi/2 => e^(ipi/2)=0+i then [e^(ipi/2)]^i=i^i.then we find i^i= 0,207879576.... is it true? can we give value for x for free?thank you.

Lunes 1999-02-04
From Kai G. Gauer:
A prof once told me that a certain type of lune is quadrable given that the diameter is an integer. She used the construction of a right isosceles triangle within a semicircle and later constructed another semicircle on the base of the first semicircle and used area subtraction to show equality to a smaller triangle with quadrable area. What happens when the original inscribed triangle is no longer isosceles? She mentioned something about other lunes also being quadrable; but not all. What are the dimensions of other such lunes? Note: I'm not certain if I still have my hercules account; please simply post on Q&Q.
Thanks!

Complex numbers and the quadratic formula 1998-12-25
From Richard Peter:
My age is 16, and my name is Richard. My question relates to the topic complex numbers & the quadratic formula.

I would like to know how to solve quadratic equations in which the discriminant is less than 0 (i.e. we get two complex solutions to the quadratic)

3x2+2x+5 = 0

and how mathematicians like euler contributed to this field. If it would be possible I would also like to know how this type of quadratic equations can be graphed?

From Alexis Riddle:
My name is Alexis. I'm a student in 8th grade and I'm taking Algebra I Honors. My question is: In a string of numbers, two adjacent digits are considered as a two-digit number. For instance, the string 11012 contains the numbers 10, 11, and 12. What is the number of digits in the smallest string that contains all of the two-digit numbers from 10-99? Please help and thank you for any assistance you can give me.
