# if a=4 and b=5 then what is zzz ?

Posted on
The moment teacher said if A= 4 and B=5,then..
streams of thoughts in all colours and of weird shapes started dancing in her mind
A is 4 what happened to 1,2 and 3
where are they now,
how are they,
why would someone not count from the beginning?
what if a dragon ate all three of them
or mama bird thought they were worms and fed them to her kids
oh no!
what will the world of math do without 1,2 and 3?
it would be a disaster and next year they will have another lesson in history
about the three numbers that once were.. ouch !
what if they had been kidnapped last night by an evil king of a faraway land
what if they are waiting for help in a geography infested dungeon
we know what geography can do to numbers don’t we…
sent in a complex latitude longitude combinations never to be found again
but what if they ran away fed up with math
what if they are hiding in a tree house
or under a rock
God help if they started playing too close to a stream and then slipped in one of them
oh no 1,2,and 3 would be in an ocean by now
may be chased by a shark
or a blow fish trying to get away sucked in a lot of water and they are now in its stomach..
i have to help them,i must i must
who is calling out my name she thought
the voice calling her name was near now
she came back to this world and saw her teacher was looking at her
yes Ma’am she stood up in hurry and asked
if a=4 and b= 5 then what is…
but Ma’am are you not worried
the missing 1 ,2 and 3
I  think they are in danger
they have been missing from the blackboard
and no one knows their whereabouts !

I often say things that put me in a jam, Jams go well with Buttered Toasts, Toasts are great hosts, Ghosts not so much, Although they can dance, Not all dancers are serial killers, Serial killers do not use Body bags that often, body bags aren't leak proof, Proof is in the Pudding.

1. Exactly right…down with math more Soma stories… love the kitten angel.

2. Whatever happened to one two and three
did they decide to go climb a tree
or have they just gone to pee
but one thought keeps coming to me
that maybe you let them free
and helped them flee.

Soma,Brilliant is the word.

11. The vey nice post my son is mathematic this is your job…..very nice day Soma…
😉

12. I am extremely grateful to the almighty GOD ,for you immaturity in asking such horrible questions to me during your school days when I had the audacity to assist you in your science subjects including math. A narrow escape by few years.
In short it was a terribly horrible laughing exercise to me to enhance my life span .YOU deserve a standing ovation.

13. You have such a brilliant and creative mind….and so smart!!! love your ways. Hugs, Sam 🙂

Loved it …..applause 😉

15. Deb

That was so funny, Soma! And hey, I just got some oranges today…I can practice math.

• yay now you will rock in maths 😆
Thanks Deb looking forward to a hugely complicated post on orange maths 🙂
love ya 🙂

16. I need to improve my Math………:) Lolzzzzz

17. If I were a song writer, this would inspire my next tune. Well done! …. but sorry to admit, I’m not a song writer.

18. Always looks forward your post, just love them… ‘big smile’

• Thank you so much Ledrake..i just read your post on black sheep ..loved it 🙂

19. I am just a huge fan of your imagination! You just weave it so well. The intented pun has come out superbly. Enjoyed the post a lot. 🙂

• Lopa what can i say Math sucked but made a good post 😆
Thanks sista 🙂

20. Red

I love math. I am not so fond of oranges. 😛 This was absolutely delightful. What a daydream from teaching little ones numbers!
Much love, Soma ❤
Red.

• Thanks Red,my math teacher had too much faith in us so he never explained anything..we were left to our devices and i chose day dreaming
hugs 🙂

21. Very funny! So I guess you’re telling us math and numbers weren’t exactly your thing.

• I used to hate it,but the reason was my math teacher never bothered to go beyond the first bench..so if you didnt understand something,tough luck..

• Unfortunately, that happens a lot, and tends to leave us hating certain subjects because we weren’t properly taught the basics.

22. Yes, numbers have so many stories to tell … I remember a comic I used to love when I was in France – We have an extraordinary comic culture in France, at the level of the best literature, science fiction, etc – it was about some extraordinary adventure I have forgotten apart that it was black & white and was happening somewhere in Ireland, in the wind and rain. It was starting with a young character, magician without knowing he was, who was singing a lithanie from old ages, ‘tell me the story of the number one …’ and it used to make me dream and wonder and fly … I spent some years studying the symbolism and language of numbers and really, if 1, 2 and 3 go missing, there is no way the world can carry on spinning round! It was a happy and meaningful read as always!

23. Argh math! This is my dreaded dream sometimes… did you read my mind Soma darling ?

24. Soma’s blog post = the only way to make math fun!

• Thanks George..its really sweet of you humouring my silly insane posts 🙂

25. OMG, this is just so funny!! I love it 🙂 It’s exactly how I was in math 😉 I just don’t understand it!! Numbers are so not my thing at all.

• Thanks Autumn 🙂
Numbers and I were from two very different planets and after it joined hands with alphabets we just could not stand each other 😆

26. Could he eat some, juice some, juggle some…….haha

• oh that is the only way to survive all those oranges ..thanks Bearman 🙂

27. I think, Soma, I have figured out that your mind and mine work along the same directions. We are both very strange; isn’t that wonderful? 🙂

28. This was just so funny Soma and that comic strip of yours was wonderful! I really did laugh, what a wonderful post…Math was my least favorite subject by the way! 🙂

• Oh thank God both you and Autumn are with me on this..Math was never on my friend list.. 😆
Thanks Gabby 🙂

29. Soma, you must have been the thorn in the flesh of each of your math teachers! Tee,hee! Just love this post because all the advanced math courses in my life taught me that numbers are man-made and incapable of explaining the universe–thank goodness!

• Oh I just loved what you wrote here about numbers Rose 🙂
i was a hopeless case but the teachers too never made an effort to know why and what i did’t understand… teachers keep forgetting not every student gets it the first time..some need more time on certain topics..

30. also, that was fun.

31. it’s not important, but “geography infested dungeon…” you should put a hyphen between geography and infested. also, i think you need an “a” added to “king of __ faraway land.”

• oh ok will correct it right now..thank you so much Rich

• no problem. some people don’t like me to point out things like that. one person e-mailed me and yelled at me to never do that again. i guess maybe they were right in that i shouldn’t have done it in the comments. i guess they were embarrassed. so feel free to tell me not to do that.

• Its just the opposite for me..i really appreciate people pointing out typos or grammatical errors,that means they read what i wrote and it helps me brush up my writing skills too

• that’s how WE look at it. but not everyone i guess. i always tell people that if you don’t point out my mistakes, then i’m going to keep making them. if you care about me, you’ll help me to fix my errors.

• Androgoth

Perhaps one should perfect one’s own grammar before criticising others, maybe then someone will take you seriously, mind you with your literary skills I doubt if anyone would be remotely interested. Remember nobody likes a smart arse, especially one that comes across as a complete idiot.

32. Isn’t it weird to think that someone had to “invent” the concept of zero? That it took a couple millennia for someone to say, “Let’s give nothing, the amount that’s not anything, a name.”

• I think ‘Zero’ is like ‘Nothing’..one has to label it to describe the phase before something

33. Delightful as always Soma 😀

34. Super post and super cartoon Soma,very funny.

You are welcome.

36. Soma, How can I rest now with 1,2 and 3 missing?!! *sleepless in Tvm*

37. Soma, this was a delightful, fun post about 1, 2 & 3! Too cute and this brings memories of me getting A’s in algebra (back then) and now, my answers would more like ????! I have to agree with sfbell, I can also see this is a children’s book! Hugs to ya! xoxo

38. Fun, fun, fun. Best use of number’s I’ve seen today. And as a programmer working with numbers all day, I think I may be right. 🙂

• Thank you so much Steven you are such a generous warm heart…am so glad you liked it 🙂

39. Sounds like how my brain works! What a fun post! I can see this in a children’s book Soma with 1 2 and 3 dancing on the page!
Very fun!

• 😆 Sussie no brain can work like yours….you are brilliant..love your short fictions,write ups and amazing fun videos…
thank you so much 🙂

40. very nice drop curtain. I like too much.

41. And the square root of 1 is…? Hmm, I was cr@p at maths at school – funny how all things numbers fascinates me now!! 🙂

• oh my god and to prove square root of 2 is irrational..yikes..
glad that you like numbers..actually its not the subject its how it was taught to us..
Thanks Stuart 🙂
