## Lord of the Rings Math

This is too good not to post! Someone made it and posted it on facebook and I saved it to my computer. I can’t seem to find the link to where it was posted though :-(.. and I can’t find any websites that have the image 🙁

1. Would’ve been better if the range was in set builder notation.

2. VERTICAL ASYMPTOTES FTW!!!!!!

3. Equation should look more like y=-1/(x-gandalf) 😛

4. try tineye.com

5. Domain and range are also incorrect, should be:
Domain = R\{Gandalf}
Range = R\{0}

6. Writing it in English is just as correct as writing it in mathematical notation. Yes, it’s bad practice, but it’s no less right.

7. That’s a better version, done by the original artist.

8. no it’s actually wrong
the domain should be: [-inf,gandalf]u[gandalf,+inf]
and the range should be: [-inf,inf]
the picture shows a vertical asymptote. this is related to domain values, not range values. if it were a horizontal asymptote, then it would be in respect to the range.

9. This equation is an epic win

11. yes. yes, we would, if u have a problem with it you should just leave

12. Hoooooooly cow, I drew this my senior year of high school, way back in 2009. I never thought I’d see it again. Damn.

13. Nerd out time
This wouldn’t actually be x^balrog
It would actually be f(x)=(-balrog/(x-2)) or maybe tangent(balrog*(x-c))
where b is the distance from the Y axis of the asymptote.
and c is |b-pi/2|
