A little math joke…

My husband was in class today (he is taking differential equations) and he heard a joke from his professor. I know all you math lovers out there will appreciate it. Although, you may have heard it before (I may have added some more detail to it…).

1 and e^x are walking down the street. They see off in the distance a differential operator walking toward them.
“Oh no!” 1 exclaimed, “He will turn me into 0 if he comes any closer!”
e^x told x not to worry and that he will take care of him.
“I am my own derivative, so he can’t harm me!”
Of course, X was still a bit worried. And as the differential operator came closer, he ran off. e^x met the operator and asked,
“Are you a differential operator?”
He told him yes and e^x puffed up his chest.
“Ha!” said e^x with a slight smirk, “Do what you want to me. Anything you do, I will always remain the same!”
The differential operator chuckled and said “Fine.”
He then took the partial derivative of y.

I thought it was pretty funny. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Until next time…

About Three Handed Mommy

Mother of one, wife to one. Hoping for more children in the future but so far I'm a three handed mommy. One hand is in school, another in loving my family, the last is on here (and all that comes with it). I love origami and I doodle once in a blue moon. Maybe I will share some drawings, both old and new. I have a slight obsession with Hatake Kakashi, Batman, rubber duckies, pandas, and Pokemon. Then again, my obsession may prove to be more than slight on more than one occassion...don't judge. :P Since this is new and all to me, please bear with me while I find my rhythm and posting habits. Hope you enjoy what I put up here! Feel free to pin anything unless stated otherwise in a post. :)
