Acreage calculation 
20091029 

Angela pose la question : I am appraising a small portion of property for a right of way for a new sewer line. I have appraised many similar
projects in the past; however the engineer always calculated the exact acreage and/or dimensions of the parcel
being taken. My survey states the following: "141 linear ft. of 25' permanent R/W. I divided the linear feet x 12 and mult. by 25
to get the square footage, but it just doesn't seem right. Any suggestions? Am I missing something? Robert Dawson lui répond.

A one pass calculation of standard deviation 
20070319 

Murtaza pose la question : Hi
I searched the listings but couldn't find what i am looking for. I have a dataset and i am allowed only 1 pass through it. At the end of this pass i must have the mean and standard deviation. Calculating the mean is easy as also demonstrated in your listings. I think the same can be done for standard deviation as well. But the doubt that i have is this : Will the calculated standard deviation be sequence dependent ? i.e. if i change the order in which the data items enter the system, will the std deviation also change ??
Thanks in advance

Calculations

Mahdi pose la question : This problem is rather general, but it usually makes a lot of problems. I almost have no difficulty in math and physics questions, but unfortunately I'm not at all accurate in simple one or two digit calculation. I even sometimes make silly mistakes in simple sums like 7+4=12 or 4+5=11! Is there any effective way to reduce these mistakes? Walter Whiteley lui répond. 





A calculation with 6 numbers 
20010616 

Edwin pose la question : I'm asked to come with, and program (in Ansi C) an algorithm that calculates all the possible results of a calculation with 6 numbers and one result. For example: I want all calculations with the numbers 3, 3, 8, 8, 2, 9, and with a result of 786. all numbers may be used once, arithmetical operations allowed are +  / *, fractions are not allowed. The problem here is what is a fast method to do this (i.e. what's algorithm that can to this). Claude Tardif lui répond.
