Reply to Kayode Idris

Hello Kayode,

I finally got your full question as you posted it to my email address. I am happy that you worked the example through. The note on that page was truncated at a point because the equation was too long. I have included the full equation in my reply as you can read below.

The error in your effort is at term 4 as I have changed its colour to red for emphasis. In my reply, I have also painted the result that leads to that value red for you to look again and compare. It is likely that by so doing, you will be able to see your mistake. Here is the full text of your question with my response.

Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1Co 5:6-8

Osezua Again

Here is a question from Osezua Ibhadode. Obviously Osezua has not yet read my response to Taiwo Atinsola. Despite that, I have given a full response which, if added to what I already posted in my response to Taiwo, ought to clear his issues. I want to encourage you to learn to type your questions properly. The equations editor in MS Word is what I use to set all my responses to the class. I also use it in preparing my notes. It is a good practice to start learning . . .

Olugbenga’s Question

The question asked by Olugbenga here is quite elementary. I am answering it in full because he may not be the only one struggling with this concept even though I have explained it on several occasions in class and in my notes. It is about the fundamental issue of a product of a symmetric quantity and an anti-symmetric one. If you don’t fully grasp this, you may get some assistance from the explanation provided here:

I want to encourage other students to ask your questions in this way. We can learn even much more outside the classroom than inside it. The internet facilities at our disposal make knowledge transmission easy! More comments please!
