I do not know if the following is true, but someone attributed this to Hazrat Ali ibn Abi-Taalib (May Allah be pleased with him) as a Math Genius:
One Day a person came to Hazrat Ali (May Allah be pleased with him), thinking that people say "Ali is too smart;" I'll ask him such a tough question that he won't be able to answer and I'll embarrass him in front of all Arabs.
He asked, "Ali, can you tell me a number, that if we divide it by any number from 1-10 the answer will always come in the form of a whole number and not as a fraction." Ali Looked back at him and said, "Take the number of months in a year, multiply it with number of days in a month (30), and multiply that with the number of days in a week and you will have your answer." The person did not believe Ali. He checked the answer and found it was correct. The number was 12 x 30 x 7 = 2520
A person was about to die, and before dying he wrote his Will, "I have 17 Camels, and I have three sons. Divide my Camels in such a way, that My eldest son gets half of them, the second one gets 1/3rd of the total and my youngest son gets 1/9th of the total number of Camels."
After his death when the relatives read his will they got extremely perplexed and said to each other that how can we divide 17 camels like this.
So after a long hard thought they decided that there was only one man in Arabia who could help them: "Ali Ibn Abi- Taalib (May Allah be pleased with him)." So they all came to him and put forward their problem.
Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said, "Ok. I will divide the camels as per the man's will; I will lend one of my camels to the total which makes it
18; now lets divide as per his will."
The Eldest gets 1/2 of 18 = 9
The second one gets 1/3 of 18 = 6
and The Youngest gets 1/9 of 18 = 2
That distributes 17 camels. Then Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said, "Now I will take my Camel back."

Three men were in the hospital waiting room when the nurse rushed in and
said to the first man, "Sir, you're the father of twins."
"Hey! Isn't that a coincidence!" he replied. "I'm a member of the

Australians conducted a scientific, mathematical, statistical worldwide survey with the following question:
"Please give us your opinion on the lack of food in the rest of the world"
No response was received. I suppose, the following problems were faced during
the survey's implementation :
1. In Eastern Europe and most of Asia no one knew what is "opinion".
2. In Western Europe no one knew what is "lack".
3. In Africa no one knew what is "food".
4. In North America no one knew what is "rest of the world".
5. In South America no one knew what is "Please".
The English Language: Have you ever wondered why foreigners have trouble with the English Language?. Let's face it. English is a crazy language. There is no egg in the eggplant, no ham in the hamburger, and neither pine nor apple in the pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England. French fries were not invented in France.
We sometimes take English for granted, but if we examine its paradoxes we find that Quicksand takes you down slowly, Boxing rings are square. And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
If writers write, how come fingers don't fing. If the plural of tooth is teeth. Shouldn't the plural of booth be beeth, If the teacher taught, Why didn't the preacher praught. If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Why do people recite at a play, yet play at a recital; Park on driveways and Drive on parkways?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language where a house can burn up as it burns down; And in which you fill in a form by filling it out. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (Which of course isn't a race at all).
A man left the cold snowy streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail.
Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail
address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife, whose husband had passed away only the day before.
When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look at the
monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor dead. At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:
Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

Some time ago I received a call from a colleague, who asked if I would
be the referee on the grading of an examination question. He was about
to give a student a zero for his answer to a physics question, while
the student claimed he should receive a perfect score and would if the
system were not set up against the student. The instructor and the
student agreed to an impartial arbiter, and I was selected. I went to my
colleague's office and read the examination question:
"Show how it is possible to determine the height of a tall building
with the aid of a barometer."
The student had answered: "Take the barometer to the top of the
building, attach a long rope to it, lower it to the street, and then
bring it up, measuring the length of the rope. The length of the rope
is the height of the building."
I pointed out that the student really had a strong case for full
credit since he had really answered the question completely and
correctly. On the other hand, if full credit were given, it could
well contribute to a high grade in his physics course. A high grade
is supposed to certify competence in physics, but the answer did
not confirm this. I suggested that the student have another try at
answering the question. I was not surprised that my colleague agreed,
but I was surprised when the student did. I gave the student six
minutes to answer the question with the warning that the answer
should show some knowledge of physics. At the end of five minutes, he
had not written anything. I asked if he wished to give up, but
he said no. He had many answers to this problem; he was just thinking
of the best one. I excused myself for interrupting him and asked him
to please go on.
In the next minute, he dashed off his answer which read:
"Take the barometer to the top of the building and lean over the
edge of the roof. Drop the barometer, timing its fall with a stopwatch.
Then, using the formula S=0.5*a*t^2, calculate the height of the
At this point, I asked my colleague if he would give up. He conceded,
and gave the student almost full credit. In leaving my colleague's
office, I recalled that the student had said that he had other answers
to the problem, so I asked him what they were. "Oh, yes," said the
"There are many ways of getting the height of a tall building
with the aid of a barometer. For example, you could take the barometer
out on a sunny day and measure the height of the barometer, the length
of its shadow, and the length of the shadow of the building, and by
the use of simple proportion, determine the height of the building."
"Fine," I said, "and others?"
"Yes," said the student. "There is a very basic measurement method
you will like. In this method, you take the barometer and begin to walk
up the stairs. As you climb the stairs, you mark off the length of
the barometer along the wall. You then count the number of marks, and
this will give you the height of the building in barometer units.
"A very direct method."
"Of course, if you want a more sophisticated method, you can tie the
barometer to the end of a string, swing it as a pendulum, and
determine the value of g at the street level and at the top of the
building. From the difference between the two values of g, the height
of the building, in principle, can be calculated."
"Finally," he concluded, "there are many other ways of solving the
problem. Probably the best," he said, "is to take the barometer to the
basement and knock on the superintendent's door. When the
superintendent answers, you speak to him as follows: 'Mr.
Superintendent, here is a fine barometer. If you will tell me the
height of the building, I will give you this barometer."
At this point, I asked the student if he really did not know the
conventional answer to this question. He admitted that he did, but
said that he was fed up with high school and college instructors
trying to teach him how to think, to use the "scientific method," and
to explore the deep inner logic of the subject in a pedantic way, as
is often done in the new mathematics, rather than teaching him the
structure of the subject. With this in mind, he decided to revive
scholasticism as an academic lark to challenge the Sputnik-panicked
classrooms of America.
There are three engineers in a car; an electrical engineer, a
chemical engineer and a Microsoft engineer. Suddenly the car just stops by
the side of the road, and the three engineers look at each other wondering
what could be wrong.
The electrical engineer suggests stripping down the electronics
of the car and trying to trace where a fault might have occurred. The
chemical engineer, not knowing much about cars, suggests that maybe the
fuel is becoming emulsified and getting blocked somewhere.
Then, the Microsoft engineer, not knowing much about anything,
comes up with a suggestion, "Why don't we close all the windows, get out, get
back in, open the windows again, and maybe it'll work !?" (Zareen Shaukat)
Actual dialog of a former Microsoft "Word" Customer Support employee:
Ridge Hall computer assistant; may I help you?
Yes, well, I'm having trouble with Microsoft "Word".
What sort of trouble?
Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away.
Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?
It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type.
Are you still in Microsoft "Word", or did you get out?
How do I tell?
Can you see the C:\prompt on the screen?
What's a sea-prompt?
Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?
There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type.

I don't know.
Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power
cord goes into it.
Can you see that?
Yes, I think so.
Great! Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged
into the wall.
Yes, it is.
When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two
cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?
Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other
Okay, here it is.

Yes-the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in
from the window.
Well, turn on the office light then.
No? Why not?
Because there's a power outage.
A power... A power outage? Aha! Okay, we've got it licked now.
Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your
computer came in?
Well, yes, I keep them in the closet.
Good! Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like
it was when you got it.
Then take it back to the store you bought it from.
Really? Is it that bad?
Yes, I'm afraid it is.
Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?
Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer.

Three economists and three mathematicians were going for a trip by
train. Before journey mathematicians bought 3 tickets and economists bought
only one. Mathematicians were glad their stupid colleagues were going to pay
a fine. However, when the conductor was approaching their compartment, all three
economists went to the nearest toilet.
Conductor noticing that somebody is in the toilet knocked to the door
and in reply saw a hand with the ticket. He checked it and economists saved
2/3 of the ticket price. Next day mathematicians decided to use the same
strategy - they bought only one ticket, but economists did not buy ticket at
all. When mathematicians saw conductor they went to the toilet, and when they
heard knocking they handed in the ticket. They did not get it back. Why?
The economists took it and went to the other toilet.
A party of mathematicians was climbing in the Alps . After several

A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are at a hotel one night
sleeping after the first day of a conference.
A disgruntled hotel employee decides to get even with the management.
He goes to a floor where there is nobody in the hallway. He drops a lit
match into a trash can in the hallway. The engineer wakes up and smells smoke. He
goes out into the hallway and sees a fire, so he fills his trash can from his room
with water and douses the fire. He goes back to bed.
The disgruntled hotel employee found another trash can in the hallway
and drops a lit match into it. Later, the physicist wakes up and smells smoke.
He opens his door and sees a fire in the hallway. He walks down the
hall to a fire-hose and after calculating the flame distance, water pressure,
trajectory, etc. extinguishes the fire with the minimum amount of water
and energy needed. He goes back to bed.
This hotel employee then drops some trash paper and a lit match into
the same trash can in the hallway. Then the mathematician wakes up and smells
smoke. He goes to the hallway, sees a fire and then the fire-hose. He thinks
for a moment and then exclaims, "Ah, a solution exists!!" and then goes back

Several students were asked the following problem:
Is it true that all odd integers are prime?
Well, the first student to try to do this says "hmmm... Well, 1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime and by
induction, we have that all the odd integers are prime."
The physics student then said, "I'm not sure of the validity of your
proof, but I think I'll try to prove it by experiment." He continues,
"Well, 1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is ... uh, 9
is an experimental error, 11 is prime, 13 is prime... Well, it seems that
that all odd integers are prime."
The third student to try it was the engineering student, who
responded, "Well, actually, I'm not sure of your answer either. Let's
see... 1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is ..., 9 is
..., standard deviation, 11 is prime, 13 is prime... Well, it does seem
that all odd integers are prime."
Not to be outdone, the computer science student comes along
and says "Well, you guys sort'v got the right idea, but you'd end up
taking too long doing it. I've just whipped up a program using a "do loop"
to REALLY go and prove it..." He runs his computer program.
The computer responds, "1 is prime, 1 is prime, 1 is prime, 1 is prime,
1 is prime...."
An assemblage of the most gifted minds in the world were all posed the

Philosopher: "But what do you mean by 2 * 2 ?"
The engineer whips out his slide rule (so it's old) and shuffles it
back and forth, and finally announces "3.99".
The physicist consults his technical references, sets up the problem
on his computer, and announces "it lies between 3.99 and 4.01".
The mathematician cogitates for a while, oblivious to the rest of the
world, then announces: "I don't know what the answer is, but I can tell
you, an answer exists!".

Two male mathematicians are in a restaurant.
The first one says to the second that the average person knows very
little about basic mathematics.
The second one disagrees, and claims that most people can cope with
a reasonable knowledge of math.
The first mathematician goes off to the washroom, and in his absence
the second calls over the waitress and tells her that after a few minutes
when his friend returns, he will call her over and ask her a question.
All she has to do is answer one third x cubed.
She repeats 'one thir -- dex cue'? He repeats 'one third x cubed'.
She: 'one thir dex cuebd'? Yes, that's right, he says. So she agrees,
and goes off mumbling to herself, 'one thir dex cuebd...'.
The first guy returns and the second proposes a bet to prove his
point, that most people do know something about basic math.
He says he will ask the blonde waitress an integral calculus question,
and the first laughingly agrees.
The second man calls over the waitress and asks "what is the integral
of x squared?" The waitress says 'one third x cubed' and while walking
away, turns back and says over her shoulder 'plus a constant'!
A biologist, a physicist and a mathematician were sitting in a street
