A Joke!

“An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one orders a beer. The second orders half a beer. The third, a quarter of a beer. The bartender says “You’re all idiots”, and pours two ”

Thanks, Sports!

    You mean ‘e’? See, am poor at mathematics, do tell me if I was grossly wrong. 🙂

    Nope, the sum of an infinite geometric series, a[1],a[2]….a[n] where a[1] = 1 and a[n]/a[n-1] = r such that r < 1, can be approximated by 1/1-r.

    So the total number of beers = 2.
