# Do you even math?

(they don’t, but it’s a good benchmark)

2001 is the year Half Life came out for

PlayStation. 495 leap years since year 0 (not

including 0) (2001/4 = 500 R1 (drop

R); 2000/400 = 5, 500 -5 = 495) (every

four hundred years a leap year is not

counted) 4 + 9 + 5 = 18

Make it a complex trinomial (3 terms;

see where I’m going with this?), drop

18 for now so the discriminant formula

can be used easily 4x^2 + 9x +5 = 0

Using the discriminant formula : b^2 –

4ac

9^2 – 4(4)(5)

81 – 80 = 1

D > 0 Therefore there are two real roots Using the quadratic formula:

X = -1.25, x = -1

SUM OF ROOTS: -2.25

-2.25 x -1 (root) = 2.25 Bring back 18 from 4 + 9 + 5

18 / 2.25 = 8

5 leap years knocked off (400, 800,

1200, 1600, 2000; remember 0 is not

counted)

8 – 5 is 3.Three Pictures. Half Life 3 Confirmed.
