Sardar and Maths…

Posted by @ B H i on December 22, 2006

There is a group of 7 Sardars who plan to meet their old friend the Principal Zail Singh

The Sardars decide to take a taxi.

The taxi driver takes them to Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The meter shows Rs. 28/-, so the taxi  driver says, “You have to pay me Rs. 28/-.”

Now, the Sardars have to share the cost among themselves and so they decide to divide the total (Rs. 28/-) by the number of people, i.e.  7.

This is how they do the calculation to arrive at the answer:
7 | 28   = 13                 ( 7 x 1 = 7, 7 x 3 = 21  ).



The driver is exceedingly happy upon receiving Rs. 13/- from each of the Sardars. He thanks them profusely and the feeling of happiness is writtern on his face as he leaves them and  proceeds his way.

Seeing this, the Sardars feel that they may have made a mistake.

They decide to ask Zail Singh about it. After all, the fellow was the Principal of the nation!

They ask Zail Singh to check their calculation of the  taxi  fare.

Zail Singh ponders over the calculations and finally says,   “See, I am not good at division. The process just boggles me but addition is something I am an expert at. Let us add all the amounts you guys gave to the taxi driver and check the result. This is how I  do for those tax forms I get very often. The process is slow but is sure.” The other sardars nod their heads (?) in appreciation.

The Principal writes as shown below and also explains as he writes on:


i.e. 3+3+3+3+3+3+ 3= 21 and 21+1+1+1+1+1+ 1+1=28 so this  checks out.

He then says, “Yes, it’s correct. But I can also call my close  friend and Finance man Banta Singh.

Banta Singh arrives,   and when told of the problem, he replies that he doesn’t think it is  a bad deal but says, “No problem! I will verify it via mathematical  computation.   I’ll verify it with multiplication. That is the best   technique for  this, you see!”

While others watch in admiration, Banta Singh goes on to write as shown:
—   (7*3=21 ,7*1=7 so 21+7=28)
+ 7

28        This checks out as well.

Then he says, “This is really fine. There should be no problem, Principal Sahab. After all, it is correct in all the methods.”

  2. Santinasi said

    They say that the new super computer knows everything. A skeptical man came and asked the computer, “Where is my father?”

    The computer bleeped for a short while, and then came back with “Your father is fishing in Michigan.”

    The skeptical man said triumphantly, “You see? I knew this was nonsense. My father has been dead for twenty years.”

    “No”, replied the super computer immediately. “Your mother’s husband has been dead for twenty years. Your father just landed a three pound trout.”
    How many software engineers does it take to change a light bulb?

    None. “We’ll document it in the manual.”
    None. It’s a hardware problem.
    Two. One always leaves in the middle of the project.
    Four. One to design the change, one to implement it, one to document it, and one to maintain it afterwards.
    Four, plus one senior analyst to manage the project, one technical writer to correct the spelling and grammar of the one who documented it, one light bulb librarian, a sales-force of at least five to drum up enough users who want to turn the light on, 274 users to burn out the new bulb, at which point we go to tender for another light bulb change,…
    Five. Two to write the specification program, one to screw it in, and two to explain why the project was late.
    Only one, but she’s not available till the year 2000.
    “The change is 90% complete.”
    “It’s hard to say. Each time we separate the bulb into its modules to do unit testing, it stops working.”
    Of course, as everyone knows, just five years ago all it took was a bunch of kids in a garage in Palo Alto to change a light bulb.

    How many maintenance programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
    None. They try to fix the old one.
    “We looked at the light fixture and decided there’s no point trying to maintain it. We’re going to rewrite it from scratch. Could you wait two months?”

    How many software testers does it take to change a light bulb?
    None. “We just recognized darkness, fixing it is someone else’s problem.”

    How many C++ programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
    “You’re still thinking procedurally! A properly designed light bulb object would inherit a change method from a generic light bulb class!”

    How many Java programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
    One, to generate a “ChangeLightBulb” event to the socket.

    How many Windows programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
    Seventy two. One to write WinGetLightBulbHandle, one to write WinQueryStatusLightBulb, one to write WinGetLightSwitchHandle …

    How many data base people does it take to change a light bulb?
    Three: One to write the light bulb removal program, one to write the light bulb insertion program, and one to act as a light bulb administrator to make sure nobody else tries to change the light bulb at the same time.

    How many IBM employees does it take to change a light bulb?
    Fifteen. Five to do it, and ten to write document number GC7500439-001, Multitasking Incadescent Source System Facility, of which 10% of the pages state only “This page intentionally left blank”.

    How many technical writers does it take to change a light bulb?
    Just one, provided there’s a programmer around to explain how to do it.
