the Simple Explanation

M. Joseph Liouville, b. 1809, was the pioneer of  Transcendental Numbers (a real number, but not a root of an algebraic equation with rational roots.) Oddly enough, Rhinos get this idea pretty well, assuming it means numbers that can’t be counted. In our case, that takes care of all of them, except 1, 2, and 3.

We’re glad M. Liouville cleared that up.

One thought on “the Simple Explanation

  1. What transcendental deliciousness — the figure of the rhino appears so especially substantial while the numerical figures so decidedly wispy and difficult to catch and capture!
