Hi yall,

I was reading a wall post by a favourite musician of mine on facebook and I came across this

ba x n^2a^2 = BANANA?

I thought about and I knew it was wrong so I used this to prove it.

say a = 1 amd b = 2 and N = 3 That equation would read [(2)(1) + 2(3)][(3^2)(1^2)] = (2)(1)(3)(1)(3)(1)

Which simplfied is 45=18 Which is wrong.

My thoughts...

(BA)(NANA) = Banana

Mine, by the same values is

2(1) x [(3)(1)(3)(1)] = (2)(1)(3)(1)(3)(1)

2 x 9 = 18

18 = 18 which is correct

Is my math correct? I just thought it was an interesting little thing that my math brain picked up. Are you guys any good at math? I got an A at Junior Cert (HIghest grade in Ireland before the REAL exam)
