Two statisticians were travelling in an airplane from LA to New York. About an hour into the flight, the pilot announced that they had lost an engine, but don't worry, there are three left.

However, instead of 5 hours it would take 7 hours to get to New York. A little later, he announced that a second engine failed, and they still had two left, but it would take 10 hours to get to New York.

Somewhat later, the pilot again came on the intercom and announced that a third engine had died. Never fear, he announced, because the plane could fly on a single engine.

dollars equal ten cents
Theorem: 1\$ = 10 cent
Proof:
We know that \$1 = 100 cents
Divide both sides by 100
\$ 1/100 = 100/100 cents
=> \$ 1/100 = 1 cent
Take square root both side
=> squr(\$1/100) = squr (1 cent)
=> \$ 1/10 = 1 cent
Multiply both side by 10
=> \$1 = 10 cent
