Math problem for today

If the square root of 256 is 16, and the cube root of 512 is 8, then what is the average time span between the moment I finish washing my car and the moment a bird decides to poop on it?

Almost as fast as when chili will meet a new, white shirt.

Damn your mathiness! Stop screwing with my head!

Lynda said...

22 seconds.

As long as takes you to put away the car washing stuff. Or back out of the driveway, whichever is shorter.

Another mystery solved! I wondered why I needed math. I wish I'd have paid attention now. MMM ...chili.:)

The answer in nanoseconds is directly proportional to the age of the car in days.

No No No more Math, please. My final is on Friday. I got equations, rational expressions, square roots and imaginary numbers swimming in my head.

I think amisare won this one however. Or as fast as it takes a naked bum baby to pee on the floor and proceed to perform Singing in the Rain with the goal of superior splashing technique.

Ah!
A trick question!!!
Janna doesn't wash her car!!!

Mr. Fabulous said...

Does she at least wash her hair?

Rhea said...

I'm not sure, but I know there's an exponent in there somewhere.

Steven said...

As long as it takes a freak wind storm to mess up ones fabulous new hairdo!

Janna said...

Amisare: Marinara sauce, too!

Mr. Fab: But it's FUN to screw with your head...

Lynda: 21.9998, actually, but sure, I'll give it to you. Good job!

Desert Songbird: Also true!

Anonymous: Chili DOES sound good.

Jason: Well, THAT goes without saying... :)

Danielle: Maybe this question will be on your finals!

Morgen: HEY! I wash the outside of the car; it's just the inside that looks like that trash room in Star Wars...

Mr. Fab: Wanna come over and wash my hair yourself, so you can be sure?

Rhea: There's ALWAYS an exponent involved somehow. :)

Steve: Sometimes even faster!
