fun geekly mind game...
When does 4=11?
And when does 11=2?
1. in base 3 (ternary)
2. in roman numerals
ooo, roman numerals.
assume non roman-numerals.
When is half of eleven equal to six?
when you're programming in integers. ;o)
I'll take your word for it, but its not the answer I was looking for.
when you're rounding up?
or binary, but you have to say "when is 11 half of 6?"
if you write the word "eleven" you actually mean 1011 (binary), XI, etc.
oh, wait read that backwards. base11.
11 in binary is half of 6.
6 in base11 is half of eleven.

// actually, that would most likely be 5.
// the answer to #2 is base one, by the way.
ah, right. it wouldn't round, just chop off.
been awhile for me, thanks d_m. ^_^

11base3 = 4base10
11base1 = 2base10
bah! i got one right! (that's 1 in base 1 and 1 in base 3) ;)
ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US
Sorry, couldn't help myself.
