Is mathematics woven into the very fabric of reality? Or is it merely a product of the human mind?
We bake pies for Pi Day, so why not celebrate other mathematical achievements.
With a record-setting $1.9 billion jackpot, you'd think it's a no-brainer to buy a Powerball ticket. But the math truly shows otherwise.
Those that were the best at math didn't even show income satiation — there was no upper limit to how much money could make them happy.
