To Donald Donald about your yesterday’s comment on ads. I have AdBlockPlus (on the Chrome browser) and never have a problem with pesky ads obscuring part of the comics page. Back a few years ago I could find a comics page on Yahoo, but I couldn’t find it when I looked tonight. They’re improving the site beyond recognition.

“Math is hard” -Barbie

To paraphrase an old master, “Math is 90 percent mental, the other half is physical”

5 out of 4 people don’t get fractions.

He must be on the time he does not understand,when does the times he understands & does not understand go in and out?

There are only three kinds of people in the world; those who understand math, and those who don’t.

60%

Wow. This is a very timely political reference. For those who haven’t heard, google “Steve Cohen tweet”.

As President Bush astutely observed, “Half the people in this country are below average intelligence.”

Math should probably be a qualification to exist.

Why was my last comment (reply to Dewed) published three times?!!!

My eldest grandson, the math whiz, the guy who can make negative numbers and integers dance, says fractions are hard. I agree. That’s likely why I prefer using decimals.

In the words of Tom Lehrer who sang, Hoo-ray for New Math. New Math. It won’t do you a bit of good to review math. It’s so simple. So very simple. That only a child can do it!

@r2varney“But decimals are also fractions. 1/10; 1/100; 1/1000 and by convention we ignore the bottom part and use “zeros” instead. Makes it ever so much easier..”.They sell tapes in decimal feet. feet, tenths of feet, hundredths of feet..Not that you would want to you, but I bet you could get tapes in meters, half meters, quarter meters, eighth meters, et cetera.(Or even better in thirteenths of meters, probably have to pay extra, though it would be worth it)

Math is a four letter word!
