Who Is Allah?

There are 256266 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

22 is correct. My reasoning stopped short.
To attempt a logical question in math, the mind has to be concentrated and flexible.

Be incisive as well as comprehensive in your analysis and don't stop short after a cursory attempt.

Re-evaluate the answer by closely scrutinizing the wordings of the question and your own working steps and only after exhausting all possibilities then stop.

If still you make a mistake, then, well, it means that your intellectual capacities are limited to the incorrect answer you gave or maybe that you're not focused enough.

But, with you, both the answers (20 and 21) given to the same question on the sweets over a gap of many months indicate that your mental faculties are as good as the (incorrect) answers that you provided.

As a student, I could sit for hours at a stretch working on trick problems without a break and without so much as looking up.

I thought CEOs or ex-CEOs were smarter and had deep number crunching skills unless the person was/is a CEO of a porn company where stats pertaining to bamboo size matters.

No big deal.

Relax, Mon.

Kisses and hugs,

LOL.
rabbee: yeah and a dog, can only run half way, into the woods. because then, he is running out.

but the trickiest one, was a whole sheet full of questions. and you are told, to read the directions carefully. but the directions say, that as soon as you have read them, sign your name at the bottem and turn the test in. since the whole test, was to see if you actually read the instructions.

but there is always the classic, where they want to see. if you can put the square pegs, in all the round holes, or stringing beads.

HughBe--- I don't know.
Frijoles--- Iran has threatened both.
HughBe--- 1.Support your claim in relation to use of nuclear assets by Iran.
2.Explain how Iran would use nuclear assets against Israel given that they have none. Iran, based on my limited knowledge, is trying to develop nuclear energy and as far as I know it is being monitored by the INTERNATIONAL community.
In closing, tell me the extent of Israel's nuclear assets and tell me the REASONS for having them.

Buy or get? LOL.
The dealer is not so gullible so as to make a loss by gifting away free sweets to one and sundry.
The cost of the extra-sweets is factored into the scheme and it's apparent that only after deducing the profit-loss factor did the dealer make the so-called generous offer.
It stands to reason that the dealer opted to make a lower profit by giving away an extra sweet for every 3 empty sweet wrappers returned.
The ratio of the cp of the extra sweet to the cost price of 3 sweets bought is of the order 1/3 or a percentage of: 1 x 100/3 = 33.33 %(recurring). It's evident that the dealer is still making a profit albeit a lower one on the sale of 3 sweets than on the gift of 1 sweet. If say he makes a profit % of 20 % on the sale of 1 sweet then it's obvious that he can easily afford to gift away 1 extra sweet for every 3 sweets purchased. Ultimately, it boils down to cost in terms of profit and reduced profit and who knows his scheme being so attractive may well attract a greater volume of sales ensuring him a far greater profit had he not introduced the scheme. So, in the final analysis, we see that the $ 15 covers the cost of the 22 sweets without the dealer incurring loss. LOL.
rabbee: your trying to rationalize, more than is actually stated. this is typical of word problems, with too much information than necessary.

your senerio would only be valid, only if it stated how many could you get for $15. and i am not about to drive to cheyenne, because bread is a penny a loaf cheaper there either. it's just too expensive, to save that kind of money.

i could rationalize, that by the time you covered the expenses of getting there, you only have $10 left. but that is not part of the actual question. the actual question is, how may can you buy, for $15 and the rest is all just unecessary extra bull.

Is Israel threatening anyone with nukes? If they are not, then I am not sure what equal rights you are referring to.
