Funny math cartoons
Since traffic is slow today, I thought to start a new thread showing funny math cartoons.

I'll start.

Nice ones! :D

Here's one that I like to show to students when they're stuck.
It always makes them smile and cheer them up.

$\text{1. Find the angle labeled with a letter.}$

Code:

                  *                 *  *               *  80 *             *        *           *          *         * 30        A *       *  *  *  *  *  *  *                     ↑                     Here!

$\text{2. Expand }(a+b)^2$

. . $\begin{array}{c}(a+b)^2 \\ \\ (\;a\;+\;b\,)\,^2 \\ \\ (\;\;a\;\;+\;\;b\;\;)\;\;^2 \\ \\ (\quad a\quad + \quad b\quad)\quad ^2 \end{array}$

$\text{3. Simplify }\,\frac{\sqrt{5}}{5}$

. . $\frac{\sqrt{5}}{5} \;=\;\frac{\sqrt{\rlap{/}5}}{\rlap{/}5} \:=\:\sqrt{\;\;}$

How cool is it to be able to calculate your speed from observations?!! :D

Saw this in Paul J. Nahin book 'An Imaginary tale'

Highly recommend this book, full of mathematical treasures related to sqrt(-1)
