good ones.

I might need to use some of these as an excuse for not doing a comic for an entire week ^_^

I was just thinking of asking this? Are these excuses for not being there for a whole week?

i found out about this thing called a life

and its actually not that bad

I am totally using these.

or how about just say "I used a Lorelian tentramorph but i kept coming up with non-renatable figures" and then hope that no one realizes that you just all of those words up

hoping you haven't copyrighted these excuses :P

My dog ate my copyrights, thus they are free for the using.

the questions reduced to problems previously covered in the examples, so I concluded the actual solutions were trivial.

That's like the one: I did problem 1 and then used induction.

There were a lot of problems, but none of them held the solutions to

myproblems.For a visual excuse...

You could have made a separate comic with each of these, and you would have got a stock of 2 week's worth of comics. ^_^

lol, that's like when they put 5 chips in each bag and make you buy 14 bags, instead of one bag of 70.

LOL left at 11th dimention

Awesome!

love this comic! :) congrats mike!

Were I the teacher, I'd be tempted to give credit for the "isomorphic to Joe's" one :)

How about 'I tried to divide by zero and my homework dissepeared'?

But if I divide by 0, NOTHING happens (100-10^-687428691%). I meant, in the other parts of the Universe. To the homework, it's only 90%, to the questions, it's 82%, to the additional points, 52.83%, to the operations and operands, only 2.07%, only if we count =s, if not, only 10^-5919098009080178287069847610000000000000000%.

Ahhh, this comic is AWESOME.

And it was made on my birthday. I feel loved by Spiked Math XD

I read one somewhere on the internet that went, 'I kept it in a locked box but a four-dimensional dog got in and ate it'.

I have a truly marvelous solution to this assignment, but there was no space left on my hard disk

My two tied-for-first favorites were the 1/4, 1/8, 1/16... one and the kernel -> popcorn -> movie one. The isomorphic-to-Joe was a close second. :-)

Furry cows moo and decompress.

My 9 tied for first favorites were the 11 dimension, inverse matrix, parallel universe, the sum 1/2^n n=1 to infinity (but for me, it MUST be n=-5348743257658716250670800000000 to infinity), the commutative rings, the L'Hopital's rule, the 42 one, the truncated one, AND the nullspace one. I deserve a geometry cookie with algebra chips.

By the way,

Limit as x approaches 0 of the function given (cotangent x over cosecant x) is 1

Work:

F(x) = cot(x)/csc(x)

Dividing by cosecant is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal, sine

F(x) = cot(x) sin(x)

The cotangent is cosine divided by sine

F(x) = cos(x)/sin(x) * sin(x)

The sine cancels

F(x) = cos(x)

Thus the limit as x approaches 0 of F(x) is the cosine of 0 or 1

Q.E.D.

You deserve a geometry cookie with 9400000000000000000000000*(60732845378465327463578462^monster group's order+10000000000008000000000000000000000000000000000*9*10^75842215601503780235705080087056870870708787770000078079898888000000000000000000000000000000000000)
