As far as I know, there's no such thing as a discontinued fraction. But if there were, I assume that it would be one that is not a continued fraction - i.e. one with a finite number of component parts.

No, there is no such thing as a discontinued fraction. It's like saying "this is an integer, then what's an outeger ?". (:D)

Ho! Ho!

I suppose on that basis an alternative name for differentiation would be outegration.

Of course there are approximately 454 parallelograms in a parallelopound.

That's awful! . . . Go to your room!

Just kidding . . . I'm just jealous 'cause I didn't think of it.
