Tusk, I tried got the answer in exponential form, but a different result from yours. I think the exponent will simplify to 0 eventually? Think


Hi Lenam,
The number will not simplify to zero, and with the exponent itself zero, we will get answer one.
The answer of 2.0923538261719799479763069347716e-37 will be
2.0923... * 0.000(36 zeros)1 ~ 0 (or very close to, but not zero)

Magic # 5: Open MS Calculator. Take any perfect square, say 4, 9, 16, 25, etc. Calculate its square root, and subtract the square root from the answer. You should get 0 as your answer, but you won't if you are using some older version of Windows. It does work with 1 though, and gives you 0 as the answer.

(25 x^y 0.5) - 5 = 2.0923538261719799479763069347716e-37

You can have a look at these just to start, circuit symbols, free-circuits. I got these two from external links to Wikipedia's page circuit diagram.

Like Ruth, I also Google'd it "electronic schematics free book", and I picked Wikipedia's page. There are also good, free books on Wiki books.

Topic: Is the word "rentee" exist?
Posted: Friday, December 3, 2010 3:36:55 PM
I am sure you must have used the word landlord/landlady for the person who rents his property to someone, and the word tenant (rentee) for the person who is renting from.

Now as to why we do not have the word rentee, or more about this, (your real question) I think we should wait for some experts here.

To Tusk - I loved "Coupling" and never missed it when it was on. I like to think of it as the thinking man's (or woman's) "Benny Hill Show"....ribald, raunchy and naughty, but cleverer. I just loved Geoff's delight in all things sexual. Remember the episode when he lost the handcuffs key? Priceless.


Cass, that episode was epic.
I loved the show, one of my favorites.
We call all his theories as Jeffism.
