I don't know how, but I negotiated an extension from a prof who has a zero tolerance policy on late work. I was kinda a mess but told no lies and gave zero excuses. Just told him I didn't have it but that I really wanted to do the work. He didn't even press me on the embarassing specifics. He gave me an extra chance and said he looked forward to reading it.

I turned it in yesterday, discreetly as he was breaking his own policy for me. I apologized that the work wasn't my best. He responded that even my worst work is better than most and then gave me some very kind comments and even thanks for my in class contributions. What a great teacher.

I have an 84 in Algebra! I made a B on both quizzes. Now we're working on sets. Yikes. I must have slept through this in high school because I don't remember these at all.

They both are encased in brackets? :scratch:

Oh, lol. They're vowels. :duh:

The brackets are in all three.

You're overthinking it, Ymir's blood. The intersect between the first and third sets is just [a,a]. Makes no difference if they're vowels, letters, or cupcakes. Just that they're both in both sets.

Not buying it. :nope:

There isn't an '[a, a]' in the third set. It's '[a, a' so that would be the common bit.

Touche, my good man. Except that the [ and the ] and the , are part of the standard notation of sets.

So if you had sets of brackets and commas, you'd be pretty much fucked.

So is the ' ' (space) part of the set too? I think you're just making up crap to be confusing.
