# Thread: Posts Per Day Mathematics

1. To generalize....

The formula is
δP = LustedForPostPerDayRatio ( TotalAddictedDays + δDays ) - CurrentInsaneNumberOfPosts

where δP = number of new posts to make and δDays = number of days to stay addicted to TypoC

2. Using this transfer function, what do I need to get in one day to 50.00:

G(s) = 50.00 * (dom + y) / (tp + x)

-> 50.00 * (795 + 1) / (8709 + x)

-> 31,000 posts in one day

hmm, thats a challenge

10.00 = 10.06 * ( x/y )^0.99741

with x >= 1 and y >= 1 and x = new posts per day and y = new days since today

-> [10.00 / 10.06]^0.99741 = x/y

-> x/y approximately = 0,9941

means 9,941 posts in the next 10,000 days or 9.941 posts in the next ten days

-> 10.06 * 9.941 / 10 = approximately 10.00

of course you may vary x/y = 0,9941 by posts / day as you like:

For example:

9.941 posts / 10 days

-> 9.941 * x = 10 -> x = 1,005935

so: 1,005935 * ( 9.941 / 10 ) = 10 / 10,05935

so 10 posts in the next 10 days 1 hour 25 minutes 27 seconds 840 milliseconds
Is it silly that I feel pwned even though my answer is the right one and this one is needlessly complex and dreadfully inaccurate?

It has a certain 'cool' factor.

5. It's what you learn in engineering, to build complex formulas, which encapsulate a lot of variables, to leave room for manipulation like design changes in the later states of development.

Most often it is not very clean mathematics, but mere a description of a process, like you start with the car, then you add movement and then you set that in dependance to the diameter of the crank shaft.

One things for sure tho, this way of doing math always has a 99% chance of leaving you with the wrong formula in the end .

Very much so.
