How Much Is Half Of 8? Is This A Joke?

Slow Down……Yes, of course, your left brain has already said half of 8 is 4. Correct!

Now, someone else argues, if you take half of 8 vertically you get 3. Hmmm.

And someone else says, “If you take half of 8 horizontally you get 0”. Hmmm.

Moral of story: “It just depends on how you look at it!”

I could go lots of places with this discussion such as, maybe this is why we have war, or this is why we get divorced, or, simply, this is why people argue. So “Be Aware, Math is Everywhere” as Steven Diaz says is absolutely right! We may not always see it but it is there.

It has been said God is a Mathematician. I think that is really cool.

  1. man, i have been told i only half a brain, now, i know for sure

  2. You are too funny! 🙂

  3. It's all in how you look at it that's for sure. I suppose if you're really dull like me you say 4. I admire the person who's answer is 3 or 0! I hadn't even thought of it that way! It really makes you think. A little too hard maybe, ouch!

  4. Hi Tater Tom Mom,Thanks for dropping by. Of course half of 8 is really 4 and this is just a joke but also most of us are programmed to see things a certain way. Maybe programmed is the wrong word. You know what I mean. Enjoy the day!
