MathsJam is a monthly opportunity for like-minded self-confessed maths enthusiasts to get together in a pub and share stuff they like. Puzzles, games, problems, or just anything they think is cool or interesting.

Apologies for being MIA last night. I came down with some nasty bug that has me out of commission since yesterday... figured I wouldn't spread the plague to the MathsJam crew.Hope you had a good one and see you next month (or at another meet-up!) soon.

So was the triangle problem solved by the following two area ratio equations below?:1) 4/3 = (40 + Q +84)/(30 + 35 + P) - due to 4/3 base relationship with same height for these two triangles2) 1/3 = (P)/(Q + 84 + P) - due to 1/3 height relationship between triangle with area 35 relative to triangle with area 105 being adjacent to these two triangles which had the same base...
Thanks to everyone who attended, we'll see you all next month. I think we'll have join in on the Pringles can Enigma fun next month. BTW, Winnipeg agrees with our solution https://twitter.com/MathsJam/status/314197340888104961/photo/1

We are at the very top of the stairs. If you think you are at the top, keep going
Anyone there yet?
I'm heading over from ballston metro now.
Looking forward to it!
Sorry, regular tutor prevents me from attending

Help support your Meetup
Meet other local Math Buffs of all ability levels. Discuss all forms of math, including pure mathematics. Fun to the nth degree for everyone who likes to solve for X!
Some of the activities in this meetup are:
* Monthly MathJams: meet at a restaurant to talk about mathematics with other people.
* Book clubs: read a math-oriented popular-level book and then discuss it.
* Lectures: attend talks at the Mathematical Association of America. (We're not affiliated with the MAA, but usually add their public lectures to our calendar.)
We're also working on our own occasional series of informal talks.
