An engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician are working, when a small fire breaks out in front of their offices.
The engineer panics and grabs the fire extinguisher, spraying it everywhere, putting out the fire, but causing extra damage in the process.
The physicist runs some quick calculations, and uses just enough to put out the fire.
The mathematician sees the fire, looks over to the fire extinguisher and says “a solution exists!” then returns to his office.
A physicist, a biologist and a mathematician are sitting in a street café watching people entering and leaving the house on the other side of the street.

If you are a sugar-conscious family, then you would probably need to learn Sir Francis Galton’s way to cut a cake. According to Sir Galton’s letter to the editor to the 1906 journal Nature, the ordinary method of cutting out a wedge is faulty because it does not minimize the exposure of the cake’s surface. Exposure of the interior of the cake for a period of time can make it dry.
Watch the video below and learn how to scientifically cut a cake so you can preserve its taste even if you eat it after a day.
Sir Francis Galton was an English polymath, psychologist,anthropologist, eugenicist, tropical explorer, geographer, inventor, meteorologist, proto-geneticist, psychometrician, and statistician. He was knighted in 1909.
Take a look at a math problem that made a parent wrote a letter to the examiner. I don’t know what to say, but I think the parent has a point. 😀
