Musical Notes and the Beauty of Mathematics
It is impossible to cut a sandwich into thirds, one part will be bigger than another, unless you have a bit left over. Look 1/3 + 1/3 +1/3 = 3/3 but then again it should be 100%, right? 1/3 equals .33 so if we are to write 1/3 into decimals we get: .33 + .33 + .33 = .99 where did the .01 go? Hmmm, very interesting.
