I don't think the explanation is right, I mean i don't know binary but i don't think the joke is that he's saying a 4 as in 100% [[User:Lackadaisical|Lackadaisical]] ([[User talk:Lackadaisical|talk]]) 00:23, 7 November 2013 (UTC) | I don't think the explanation is right, I mean i don't know binary but i don't think the joke is that he's saying a 4 as in 100% [[User:Lackadaisical|Lackadaisical]] ([[User talk:Lackadaisical|talk]]) 00:23, 7 November 2013 (UTC) | ||

## Revision as of 11:53, 5 April 2014

One of correct answers is P = 1 + 1 - |sgn(10 - 1 - 1)|

(|x| is absolute value of x, sgn(x) is 1 when x > 0, 0 when x = 0, and -1 when x < 0)

If 10 = 1 + 1, then P = 10 - |sgn(0)| = 10 - |0| = 10

If 10 > 1 + 1, then P = 1 + 1 - |sgn(10 - 1 - 1)| = 1 + 1 - |1| = 1

If 10 < 1 + 1, then P = 1 + 1 - |sgn(10 - 1 - 1)| = 1 + 1 - |-1| = 1

So P is 10 iif the question was is in binary, and 1 iif it was not in binary.

- The absolute value is unnecessary. When is 10 ever less than 1+1?108.162.219.202 20:28, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
