The following is NOT a Problem for you, but I thought you ought to see it. This is how the value of Pi can be determined mathematically:
From here on, the Problems get more difficult!
(The following Problem “ain’t” what it looks like; so be very careful!)

(Side Note: A young lady, working at Radio Shack in Sunset Plaza, got it right on her first try.)
What is n? Which other Problem does this relate to?
9 – Quadratic Roots Proof: If aX2 + bX + c = 0
Where a, b & c are all Constants, then Prove that the Equation –
Is Valid in determining the Values for X in any 2nd Degree Polynomial Equation.
10 – A Novelty Store purchases 100 toy animals and sells them for $100.00. It sells toy cows $5.00 each, toy horses $1.00 each and toy sheep $.05 each. How many of each toy animal did the Novelty Store have initially?
(Note: There is an Extraneous Solution, which does not apply: ‘100 $1.00 Toy Horses’, which does yield 100 toy animals at $100.00. But that Extraneous Solution excludes toy cows and toy sheep, so it is NOT our Solution)
TABACCO: Now, Readers, ask yourselves if our Wyandanch B.O.E. is preparing our Students to SOLVE PROBLEMS SUCH AS THOSE ABOVE!
Then ask yourselves if merely Hiring their Friends and Family & Firing their Enemies will achieve that goal and how!
If we want our Students to LEARN, which is measured by the State Tests, then we MUST CHALLENGE our Students in the CLASSROOM and with HOMEWORK.
PS Board Members like Charlie Reed are so fond of promoting DANCING, MUSIC, BASKETBALL & CHEERLEADING! These “studies” lead to Entertainment for folks like Charlie Reed. We all know how Charlie Reed loves to be entertained!
All these are fine endeavors, but Educating our Students MUST come FIRST!
Sorry, Charlie, but Math, Science, History, Social Studies & Languages don’t lend themselves very well for your Entertainment!
Despite what our B.O.E. does with its Time, B.O.E. does NOT mean
“Board Of Employment”,
nor “Board Of Entertainment’.
B.O.E. stands for
BOARD OF EDUCATION!
Did you get that, Charlie!
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!
