2x2?

Recommended Posts

Take into consideration I first was told this some 50 years ago in a math calculus class by the Professor, it has stuck, it is funny, and carries a weighty lesson.

 

A freshman's first week at college was asked, ‘what is 2x2?’. The freshman immediately snapped back ‘4!!’.

In his sophomore year he was asked the same question, in which with some hesitation answered ‘4’.

Then in his junior year again was asked ‘what is 2x2?’. He pondered a while, thought carefully over the various possibilities and then sheepishly answered ‘4?’.

Finally in his senior year he was asked the all too familiar question, in which he promptly whipped out his slide rule and boldly proclaimed ‘3.99999!!!’.
