How is it possible that 3 + 4 = 5?

Using VECTORS

i.e. 3 m North + 4 m East
= 5 metres North East

3^2 = 9
4^2 = 16
9 + 16 = 25
SQ Root of 25 = 5

 Poker Aug 06, 2004 Shouldn't this be a math teaser? pretty_ponyz Aug 06, 2004 my pony wants to know what a vector is. please answer her question because she is in misery bc she cant figure out what vector means. please help. Rashad Aug 16, 2004 AXTON ... I like this teaser ... Very nice RushHour1049 Aug 19, 2004 Pony, a vector is a length, like 3 inches. In this case, he is using a 3 inch pencil, a 4 inch pencil, and a 5 inch pencil to make a triangle. shdwhawk Sep 06, 2004 Good teaser, but shouldn't it be under maths? gs_navee034 Sep 30, 2004 Nice one with good logic chefkerp Jan 20, 2005 it is just the pythagorean theorem why is it rated 3.12, its simple AZTTT Sep 20, 2005 Wow! I actually guessed it right keep 'em coming! mercenary007 May 04, 2006 This is stupid... yes the answer makes sense but the last time I checked I'm not psychic... clearly anyone would think that you're talking about just 3 and 4 and not the directions. This shouldnt even be "logic" cuz there is no way to logically work that out. This should be at best a "trick" teaser. This is almost as stupid as saying how can 1 = 1000? because 1 kg = 1000 grams. That is STUPID vg674 Feb 14, 2008 It takes a bit of logic to think of the connection from one set of numbers to another set of numbers without any background information. It could belong elsewhere, but it seems fine as is. Pythagorean triples. Fun.
