What are 3 things in math that are different but the exact same thing?
Perhaps we have different interpretations of the term "Exact".
I'd guess zero, the null set and something else (1-1)?
1.5 = 90 = 1:30
1.5 minutes = 90 seconds = 1 minute and 30 seconds
Just 3 different ways to represent the same thing in math but without the accompanying qualifiers the math would be wrong.
Probably other examples out there but that is the simplest that I can think of off the top of my head
A decimal, percentage and fraction are all different but the exact same thing, .5 = 50% = 1/2.
If something is different it cannot be the exact same. Neither linguistically nor mathematically.
Separate names with a comma.
