My fave math joke: There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don’t!

well, that's more of a computer joke. but i like that one ;)

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who can count in trinary and those who can't.

Remember: they're ALL base 10!

My favorite math joke ever…
Two cows are standing in a pasture.
The first cow turns to the second and says, "Although pi is usually abbreviated to 5 decimal places, it actually goes on to infinity."
The second cow looks up and says, "Moo."

I don't get it.

For those who are not fans (or just plain hate) math, the first cow talks about how pi is always rounded to the first 5 places (for simplifying calculus, geometry, etc) to 3.14159 and casually mentions how the numbers are actually infinite.

The second cow just says "moo" which is a reference to the Greek letter Mu (pronounced 'myoo'). The humor comes from the fact that in this context, Mu is a reference to minimization. So basically instead of saying pi to an infinite number of places, Mu just allows us to round off to whatever decimal place is most convenient for the sake of the theorem, equation, etc.

Knowing this, the first cow is just talking about pi being simplified and the second cow is just generally referencing what it is. (I'll confess to being a bit long winded, but that's about as best as I can sum it up)

I'm going to have to remember that one! That is awesome!

I'm going to have to remember that one! That is awesome!

An infinite group of mathematicians walk into a bar.
One says to the bartender "I'll have a pint please."
The second says "Half a pint, please."
The third says "Quarter of a pint, please."

Just as the fourth is about to open his mouth, the bartender goes "I see what's happening" and pours 2 pints.

I'm a bit embarrassed…. I didn't get this one… :'( … Would anyone mind and explain it please?

It's a fairly simple discrete math joke.

The first guy asks for 1 whole pint. Then the next asks for half (1/2 pint). Then the next asks for half of that half (1/4 pint) and so on. So if there are an infinite number of mathematicians in a bar and all of them are just going to ask for half, then you may as well just pour a whole because it's going total 1. As a result, you just pour 2 pints (1 for the 1st guy and the second to take care of the rest).

O.O … Now I can ROFL with comfort… :D

Well, sum people are great!

MATH! UGGHH *jumps out window*

I can't stand math, it never makes any sense! It's like they make it all up just to annoy you =_=

Although I kind of figured what the joke was, it was NOT funny at all.

i don't like them but i enjoy a good math joke… even i understand it!

So what's messed up with "8" so that he can see sqrt(-1)?

I want to know that too.

That's Infinity, not 8

It looks more like an 8 to me. It would be stood on its side if it was infinity. How would infinity be able to “see” an imaginary number anyway?

Well… infinity is not a real number!, it's actually a symbol that represent a quantity without bound or end. you use infinity to say that something never ends, but you can't do mathematical equations with it (you can't add, subtract, multiply, etc infinity)

That is not infinity. The feet would be on the middle part and it would be sideways.

Touch me, I'm reality !

I know the Maths, but I don't seem to get the joke. Enlighten us, great joke-writer…!

the square root of negative one is an imaginary number. the joke writer is showing it as an imaginary friend :)

man, that's like third grade math…even I (I'm useless at math) get it…

HA! Imaginary numbers are awesome!

If you aren't working with numbers less than 9.5, then you aren't doing real math. :P

Let's multiply by the complex conjugate.
That's right: SHIT JUST GOT REAL!
