For sure by the time it takes to say the five syllables of “square root of sixteen”, the ball has already hit someone random or that someone’s car windshield.
square root of 16 = 4 (four)
In four score and seven years, he won’t remember much about the day
He’s good at Maths, but lousy at spelling.
You mean I have got to solve the equation?
I love the stance in the second panel. I’ve never seen a pro drive like that.
I think at least two of my high school math teachers had this pinned on their door. Something they identified with, I suppose.
I prefer 2². Much more concise.
Next time he’ll shout 2^2.
Fore. As in “in front”. It probably should be “aft”. As in “there is a missile behind you”
To be absolutely precise, it should be |√4| . If he used the negative root, he’d be doing the equivalent of calling out “Don’t pay attention to my stroke!”
Oh Roger, you knew what you were getting into when you dragged him out there.
Jason is mistaken anyway. It’s not the number four…
When I was a teen, my dad would take me golfing. One time, someone yelled “FORE!” and my dad did a duck and cover. The ball zoomed right over where his head would have been. I on the other hand, just stood there dumbly. I never did ask him if he saw it coming or just always took cover like that…
Doesn’t matter that Jason’s drive is errant, it’s still 100 times farther than Roger drives — in any direction!
The exclamation point means “factorial.” He just said the equivalent of 24.
The square root 16 is 4.
Golf with a math need.
As a lifelong golfer, I can relate all too well to this situation—not including the numbers. Made me laugh..
