Explain Math in Simple Language

Math Online Tom Circle

The great Mathematician Israel Gelfand used to say:

“People think they don’t understand math, but it’s all about how you explain it to them.

If you ask a drunkard what number is larger , 2/3 or 3/5, he won’t be able to tell you. But if you rephrase the question:
What is better, 2 bottles of vodka for 3 people or 3 bottles of vodka for 5 people, he will tell you right away: 2 bottles for 3 people, of course.”
