## How To Say I Love You, The Equation

I wish I'd been this clever in high school. Unfortunately for my early love life, I was not. If only I had a time machine I could go back in time and pass Leslie Labia a cute note like this instead of the one I did. God, the embarrassment. It read, "Mrs. Martin, I shat my pants again. Could you announce to the class I've been called to the principal's office? It's really starting to stink back here." What?! Oh like you could have done any better!

Nerd Love Solve for "i" [graphjam]

Thanks to Wes, who, will you go out with me? Circle one: YES YES

• how can I4gat her

• haha. you guys take it so seriously. its just a game .cmon be an open minded

• Ells

True dat:) Math nerds aka me lol:)

• psychomunkey719

this doesn't make sense... First off, saying to solve for "i" is illogical as "i" is not a variable, it's an imaginary number with a constant value of root(-1)... Which makes the entire inequality a mathematical impossibility... You can't have an inequality with imaginary numbers... It just doesn't make sense...

• A Concerned Mathematician

If you square the equation, then i<3u becomes -1<9u^2, which is always a true statement, as the lowest possible value of u^2 = 0, and -1 < 0. Therefore, this equality is true.

• aymane bendehmane

you re right dude we can t put an inegality with complex numbers

• Jynxed

Actually, you can have inequalities with complex numbers, however there is no one universal method of solving for inequalities. i and other complex numbers in equalities are not like dividing by zero.

• Henry Melchior

So, just saying, i is not the same the symbol for square root of -1. My keyboard can't even type that symbol. Although similar, i is simply a variable. You want proof that the two are different, do my college algebra homework for me.

• tanman

sounds like the only one you love is your right hand..

• Oscar

wrong, you can represent any number with any letter. You can replace x with a, b, c, etc. There is no specific letter used to replace a number.... While i can be square -1, in this case, it represents just a number...

• aymane bendehmane

no you can t compare two complex numbers the guy is right

• were not solving simply simplifying my friend

• logan_martell

you're thinking too hard

• marc ugly

yes it does dumbass
