    Whenever I don’t know answer on tests I generally just write down either a color, or “Jesus”.

    I’m sure in some special way both are correct.

    The answer to all is is 42. Simple.

    Find the point where the following lines intersect…… = 42
    Find c using the rule of cosines where a=3, b=76, A=65Degrees…. = 42
    Draw the curve of the following equation: y=5x^7 + 5x^6 + … = 42

    I ended up drawing on the white board a lot in school too. We would have little draw wars between two classes.

      OK, let me take a stab: if love (heart) is large enough, and you put it as the dneominator of the equation, no matter what is in the numerator, the huge heart makes them disappear (approach zero).Does that work?Are you going to publish the answer?

    The math part was easy for me in school… too easy. I was easily bored with math because they would teach a concept, I would get it, then they’d make us practice the concept over and over regardless that I already understood it. I ended up drawing a lot. (I was the kind of kid in kindergarten that told the teacher that 3 could be divided in 2 and you’d have 1 1/2 and 1 1/2 and get told by the teacher to sit down and stop being a smart alec.)

    Hmmm. I liked drawing. How did I end up in computers?
