eternal truth: example 1
to answer the question... "what is the length of the three sides of a triangle" ?
just say... " a + b + c "
by saying that you have used algebra and arithmetic and given the answer to a question about geometry
great isn't it
by saying five words you have spoken an eternal truth
to prove it... draw a line the length of the answer
divide the line into three equal pieces and the three pieces will make a triangle exactly the same size as the one you started with

eternal truth: example 2
to answer the question... " what is the area of a triangle ? "
you say... " multiply one of the sides of the triangle by two and divide by 2.3093 "
to prove it...
let's say the three sides of the triangle add up to thirty centimetres
each line must then be ten centimetres
ten centimetres times ten centimetres equals one hundred centimetres
one hundred centimetres divided by 2.3093 equals 43.3 square centimetres, which is the answer
