seems that one of you three has been cancelled. Yet doesn't say which of you three has been cancelled. 3 +  -1 = 2.  Dang A.I. 😸

3+-1=2

3(+-)1 .. 3(0+0-0)1 ...

3+-1 = 31

You're all wrong.

3 + -1 = 42

3 +1 = 4

3 - 1 = 2

4 & 2 are 42.

No matter the question, the answer is always 42... 😁

c² = 324, so, a² + b² = 324.
324 / (b = 16 + a = 9 = 25) = 12.96.
12.96 x 16 = 207.36
√207.36 = 14.4"

12.96 x 9 = 116.64
√116.64 = 10.8

324 / (116.64 + 207.36 = 324) = 1.

Maths muss sein!

So why is this in Feedback? It's not a software issue with the forum. Refreshing the page usually takes care of it.  🤔

Probably so we could have a bunch of math jokes.

That... actually made me a bit sad as that's happened to me with my own Dad oh so many decades ago, so I feel your pain @karenx0. However looking back I remembered one of the best math jokes I've ever heard of. May I present to you... this... 😁

Peace...

Race conditions.

Imagine the following:

1. 3 people have already liked a post
2. You like the post
3. Database adds a row to the likes list
4. Server counts number of rows of reactions
5. Database updates the post with number of reactions

That is what normally happens, but in a race condition, this can happen:

Imagine the following:

1. 3 people have already liked a post
2. You like the post
3. Database adds a row to the likes list
4. (Initialized by you) Server counts number of rows of reactions
5. Someone unlikes the post
6. (Initialized by person unliking) Server counts number of rows of reactions
7. (Initialized by person unliking) Database updates the post with number of reactions
8. (Initialized by you) Database updates the post with number of reactions

The process thread handling the like for you was slower than the one handling the other person, thus puts the incorrect value.

This happens from time to time, a easy fix is to just undo your react and react again.
