5 + 5 = 25

Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, August 12, 2005 in ,
In my O Levels, I used to make a lot of mistakes in math. I would always write
5 + 5 = 25. No matter how hard I try, my mind would always calculate this thing. To me 5x5=25 is as correct as 5+5=25. I would also write 3+3=9. *Yes, weird brain I've got*

Then, one day, my accounting teacher gave me a full-scape sheet of paper and asked me to write 5+5=10. And guess what I had to write 4 pages of this thing. Then the next day, he asked me to write 3+3=6. And it helped me a lot.

The day when I had my entry test exam, what I did, I wrote 5+5=10 and 3+3=9 on the question booklet....so that I don't forget it during my exam. ufff... Now, it's a good thing that the administration does not show corrected test papers, or.....

Still sometimes, I have to use a calculator to know if 4+4=16 or 8.

pray for my math please <:o)

Cheerio =)

What about 2+2? I am sure this is the main culprit which forced you into believeing all that.

And by the way, that's "foolscap", and not "full-scape". I was rather amused when we studied about it in the second year of our FSc's English. Our English teacher described the "fool's cap" in detail at that time, sadly I don't remember it now, it was funny. Check these links out, though, if you are interested:


P.S. Just read about your interview. Thumbs up!

foolscap like foolproof.. choro isse

bwahhhaa.. waise i think its a nice UNIQUE habit.

praying... praYING.. PRAYING!!

what is going on... dd plz tell me... After oiling my brain wit diesel and setting it on fire i have linked the BU and Bharia, otherwise i thought you were going in navy. Then I again read the post.. again and again then I realized its Bharia University.

thumbs up for your interview.
