Since there are so many of us Foo engineers, I thought this would be good.
hahaha I like that second one.
Summation of 1/2^n with n going to infinity. That's just awesome.

So can someone tell us exactly how much that check is for???
Time Warner Cable is about to get a very simular check...
That seems kind of dangerous to me. You'd be relying on a teller at the bank, and the people who process checks for the bank to interpret the amount. They're rather unlikely to know for sure, so they could take out 2 cents from your account, or they could take $20,000.
In search of what to search for.
0.2 cents.Originally Posted by randya
0.002 dollars is self-explanatory
Euler's formula: e^i (theta) = cos theta + i sin theta
So e^i (pi) = cos pi + i sin pi = -1
Sum of infinite geometric series: sum (n = 0 to infinity) of a x^n = a / (1 - x)
So sum (n = 1 to infinity) 1/ (2 ^ n) = sum (n = 1 to infinity) (1/2) ^ n
= sum (n = 0 to infinity) (1/2) * (1/2) ^ n = (1/2) / (1 - (1/2) ) = 1
Add it all up, and you've got a check for 0.2 cents.
If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

just call is epsilon
it is pretty much a value approaching zero. let's just say lim f->inf = 0
ahh forgot about the sum of infinite geometric series. it's not 2 cents. it's .2 cents, so it's essentially 1/5 of a cent.

I'm not an engineer, but that's hillarious.
Brilliant!
0.2 cents = 0.002 dollars. We have math nerds who prefer different units.Originally Posted by cuda2k

Actually, the math guys agree, 0.2 cents.

If we want to settle this for sure, I can check with my friends dad who is a mathematics department chair and works for a DoD think tank on the side developing complex super algorithms for government decryption.
I bet he'll know.
I like them memo the best.

Seriously. I've been through some similar experiences. And it really, really bites.

It's illegible enough you can claim it's e^2pi, then cash it for $536.49.
The bank isn't going to do anything, I know personally banks wash there hands when an even a fully legible check gets cashed for the wrong amount.
