BAD::5 April 2006 (Counting)

5 April 2006 written in MM/DD/YY format is 04/05/06 and this date demonstrates counting.

04/05/06 also demonstrates increment-by-one: four incremented-by-one is five and five incremented-by-one is six.

The average of 4 and 6 is 5.

   (4 + 6)    10
   ------- = ---- = 5
      2        2

Thanks to SCC professor Dueck (and MarkP and KevinO and the Arizona Republic's Clay Thompson and MaryF) for the following time and date tidbit.

   At two minutes and three seconds after 1:00
   am and pm, the time and date were:

   01:02:03 04/05/06

I'm more use to using date and time rather than time and date.

   At eight minutes and nine seconds after 7:00
   am and pm, the date and time were:

   04/05/06 07:08:09

   What goes up must go down?

   At five minutes and four seconds after 6:00
   am and pm, the date and time were:

   04/05/06 06:05:04

More off the wall arithmetic analysis with 04/05/06...

   (1) summation(4, 6) = 5  

   (2) summation[4, 6] = 4 + 5 + 6 = 15
       15 is a "multiple" of 5

   (3) 4 + 6 = 10
       5 is a "factor" of 10
Quickie About Interval Notation

Note: This BAB used the summation function to demonstrate interval notation. Interval notation is used to represent a set of numbers.

   Assume we have a value and two numbers 'n' and 'm'
   where 'n' is less than 'm'.

   [n, m]   n <= value <= m
   [n, m)   n <= value < m
   (n, m]   n < value <= m
   (n, m)   n < value < m
   
   [] imply inclusive
   () imply exclusive
