Fun Question

    This is a fun question which most of my friends missed the first time:- 5\frac{7}{x}\times y\frac{1}{13}=12, find the value of x and y. Will see if you can find the catch. Most of my friends asked a very silly question the first time they solve it and even I made the same mistake of asking the...

    A fun math problem in a show.

    Hey I was reading some comics and in the comics the protagonist tells someone to solve this equation if he wants him to do as he says.

    a fun proof of inf integers, tell me what you think.

    Thought of this today. two years ago someone told me that you cannot know if there exist a biggest integer or not. then i said that there must be a bigger integer, because we can add one to it. But now i thought \infty+1 = \infty, so when we get to \infty big numbers adding one does not...
