I know the answer to this question already, but I can't seem to figure out what properties would make that answer occur logically. This problem also *should not* involve the use of trigonometry, considering how it was on a worksheet of geometry problems. However, if that is the only way to prove this problem, well, an explanation is better than none. [For those who want the solution to the problem: It's 15. But I have no clue what the proof is to get that answer.]

I know that his club foot, the Kristallnacht/burning of the books, and his one day as chancellor and suicide were pretty big, but what else is extremely notable? (Other than the obvious fact that he was the propaganda minister, and was the Gautier of Berlin for a while)

  • Which brand is best for an open hole flute?

    I'm considering buying an open hole flute for the start of high school. Preferably, something that's not to pricey (one of my friends got on for $1200, so preferably something lower than or around that price) with good tone quality and ease of use. If you could recommend a particular model as well, that would be helpful.

I'm reluctantly using Internet Explorer right now (which I can't stand) right now, and after downloading Netscape yesterday to try it out, I found that even Netscape wasn't working, and it had the exact same problem that Firefox was having. I'm running on a computer with Vista, and the Firefox problem didn't happen until after I clicked a button to download the new version of Firefox. I've already uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox multiple times... Still having the same problem.

The rules: The stick/line you move must be placed back on the other side of the equation. (For example, if you move something from the left side of the = sign, you have to move it to the right side of the + sighn, and vise versa.) You can ONLY move one stick/line. Things such as <than, > than < than or equal to, > than or equal to, and inequal to are not allowed. The numbers are Roman Numerals. Restaruant puzzle: 3 people go out to eat. Since the dinner costs 30 dollars, they decide to split the bill so that they each pay 10 dollars.. The waitress takes the bill, and gives it to the boss. The boss, noticing how the 3 people are regulars, tells the waitress to give 5 dollars back to the 3 people, but since 5 dollars is hard to split, (cont in next part)

Whenever we don't, she gets extreamly annoyed, tried to argue with us why we should be giving her help (although usually she keeps on telling us to help her until we literarly give her the answer), and if we don't, she insults us. I personally want to do something to make her stop it... The only thing is, she's one of those student council people, that most of the teachers think is perfect.
