i can confirm that its a nonagon, and i never seen the word enneagon.
Guessed "Euclid" for "e" number and missed the 1 thru 100 summation (despite previously seeing comments in other quizzes on the Gauss series formula: sum = n(n+1)/2 with n=100 returns 5050 :o)
In any event,base-2 is certainly a correct answer to the question you asked.
ones place 45 × 10
tens place digits 45 x 100
( I also was off by 100. )
hundress place 1 x 100
I recall graphing lines in the 60s. Public schools mostly used m to define the slope.
then adding the terms two by two: 1+100 , 2+99, ..., 50+51 , one obtains 50 times 101 = 5050.
I agree with you, the 3 numbers can be described as real and complex. The hint is a bit confusing.
In this case, yes, they are real numbers; but what is the motivation for listing them, if the answer is "real numbers"? None--they are not better exemplars of real numbers than any other.
But they are, famously, irrational and proofs of their irrationality is usually part of a math curriculum; high school math students are likely to see a proof of √2's irrationality. So irrational is obviously the best and intended answer, even if there are other strictly correct ones.
I do think it's slightly weird to spell "Pi" and not use π, it kind of implies you're referring to the letter and not the constant, but it's still clear what's being asked for.
Nice one, thanks!
Pleasant Quiz otherwise :)
1 + 100 = 101
2 + 99 = 101
50 + 51 = 101
101 x 50 = 5050
So indeed 101*100/2 = 101*50 = 5050
