    In that case the squares will be negative.

    And the square root of -1. That bugger is always in there somewhere.

    If 3 + 8 was 38 yesterday then 9 + 4 is 94

    I can’t imagine why we even have eleven and twelve. They should be oneteen and twoteen.

    Between Calvin’s father and Hobbes, I think we get some insight to Calvin’s constant state of perplexity.

    Ask congress – they use the same logic to pass tax cuts that they pretend won’t reduce the deficit. Oh right – we already covered imaginary numbers.

    Calvin needs to swallow his pride and ask Suzie for help.

    As bad as I am with math, this all makes perfect sense.

    If “i” is equal to the square root of “-1”, what is the square root of “i”?

    This is why you don’t see any Tiger Engineers.

    Imaginary numbers are ho-hum; Grassman number systems are the new Thing. In Grassman number systems anything goes as long as it follows the rules of the number system. For example, addition may be commutative but multiplication not: A+B = B+A but AxB =/= BxA. String theories rely on Grassman numbers… it was the only way to get the required number of universal dimensions below 26.

    You have to admit that imaginary numbers make perfect sense when an imaginary tiger tells you all about them.

    Technically all numbers are imaginary.

    Just remember that “6 X 9 = 42”, and it will ALL make sense!!

    You weren’t born.

    You were stuffed full of something at a factory.

    Why not throw in a hexadecimal system (based on 16 rather than ten) beyond nine, the numbers would go, ten, eleven, twelve, thren, forven, felve, hex. Hex would be written, “10.” Let your imagination wander for the numbers between nine and hex.

    You get interesting answers when you have to use Hobbes’ furry toes.

    I had a lot of students who did “creative math” that way…I think they’re all in Congress now.

    Hobbes is born with a bad “talent” for math.

    Hobbes, you have to read the book to find out what`s in it. Or…you could move to California and run for Congress.

    Hobbes must be a Republican economist. They know all about imaginary numbers.

    My two favorite imaginary numbers—eleventeen and thirty-twelve!

    I’d forgotten where I first saw them, but now my question’s been answered.

    Good one today.

    I like the comics. I hate the ads. I quit because there are too many ads.

    Hobbes’s idea of imaginary numbers is a lot more complex than the real imaginary number concept (using “i” in an equation, etc.)
