... and for those who have never had the misfortune to have HAD to do Lighter Life , this stand for a Very Low Calorie Diet. In fact I'm doing the Cambridge Diet this time but same difference. Having done Lighter Life before, it's just easier to call it that . Either way it is HELL.
So to keep my mind off food , here's a little mathematical peculiarity for everyone out there revising for their Maths GCSE Unit 1 paper on Monday .
If x = 0.999 999 (1)
Multiply by 10 10x = 9.999 999 (2)
Subtract (1) from (2) 9x = 9
Therefore x = 1
And so 1 = 0.9 recurring
Weird or what ???
And so must I be to be spending my Saturday afternoon doing maths .
Still, it keeps my mind of food.
Now if only I could make 12 stone 3lb = a size 10 , I'd be really laughing
By the way GCSE students ... I am 53 year sold and I STILL have that dream that I'm going into an exam without having been to any lessons or done any revision and then wake up in a sweat. If you don't want to experience the same fear , stuff Facebook down the toilet and get your maths books out . Trust me , you'll thank me.
