e've all seen them. They
look normal, and yet
...Their checkbooks are
always balanced. They
stay up late at night thinking about
planes and infinite lines, rather than

Something like this: 3(31\1.1)-1 divid-

Among the greatest math geniuses
today are the members of the math

have come up with a question that
involves an Israeli armored brigade

Don't panic — yet. According to the
club, this question falls in the category

armored. It keeps on this way through
squadrons, platoons, squads, until final-
ly, an armored squad consists of two
armor soldiers and one infantry soldier,
and an infantry squad ... you know
How many soldiers should be retrained
in order to transform an infantry
brigade into an armored brigade?
