Can't imagine living in the times of Pythagoras, Euclid and their squad. <br />I used to tote my slide rule, protractor and compass around whenever I went out in search of a good coffee shop...just in case. Postulates...propositions...coordinates...NOPE!! Not no more.H.B.http://www.blogger.com/profile/11204499380736059030noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-986819666451615261.post-1058888166222374822017-06-06T01:28:11.902-05:002017-06-06T01:28:11.902-05:00I'll take an arch anyway I can get it.I'll take an arch anyway I can get it.

I'm not the geometry police!

The formula is ...Parabola's are a tough build. The formula is so precise that most attempts fall short.<br />Close...but not exactly accurate. Then, trying to combine coffee with parabola's gets even trickier. There is a coffee shop under the Arch in St. Louis. But plotting the coordinates of the Arch reveal that it is not a true parabola. The same for the coffee that can be obtained 'neath the twin golden arches on every other corner of the world. Again...not true parabolas. I think that It is probably so much easier to brew up a good cup of coffee than it is to construct a true, mathematically accurate parabola that most people won't care. If the joe is fair, the math don't care.H.B.http://www.blogger.com/profile/11204499380736059030noreply@blogger.com
