Geometry: 2-4, 2-5 (Friday)

First, read 2-4.

Spock, having thoroughly beaten the moon ninjas, basks in the accolades of his peers.

Uhura tells him the following: “Anyone who can fight that many moon ninjas could captain their own ship.” She continues, “I can tell you’re well versed in mathjutsu.”

Chuck Norris adds, “If you were a space captain, you could explore the subtle infinities of the universe. A person who’s well versed in mathjutsu might even be able to unravel the mysteries of dark matter. I personally find dark matter fascinating. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to hunt down the moon emperor within his caverns of phosphorescent crystal.”

What two deductive conclusions can Spock make from these statements, other than that the emperor of the ninjas' moon will soon die?

Which Law did Spock use in each of those two conclusions?

In 2-4, work problems 8, 16-28 even, 34, 36, 44, and 46.

Read 2-5, and work problems #8, 10, 18-24 even, 28, and 38.
