## How do you use the nCr and nPr buttons on a 2-line calculator?

I thought I would enter the first number, push nCr or nPr, then the second number. It gives me a „math error“ and so does pushing it first then the numbers separated by a comma. What am I doing wrong?

Hmm, are you entering the larger or smaller number first? If you are trying to determine lotto odds you enter 48, nCr, 8, unless you are in RPN mode in which case you’d type 48, hit [enter], type 8, press [nCr]

In mocrosoft math, combination and permutation are functions, you press the key or type the word, enter one number, enter comma, enter second number, close parens and continue or just press enter when all you are going to do is close parens.

## Some questions about getting in shape?

I am 6’1 and currently weigh 215 pounds. Alot is muscle but I want to get rid of the double chin and beer gut. I eat somewhat crappy and eat at all odd times of the day and night. I am just starting to jog in the mornings before work. I am so out of shape I get winded walking up a couple flights of stairs.

-Do I eat a healthy breakfast before or after I jog?
-Whats a normal calorie intake I should have for a day?
-I should eat 5 smaller meals a day correct?
-I plan on jogging and getting somewhat in shape before I start weight training. Is this a correct way to go about it?

I guess im just confused on where to start. I know I need to eat healthier and maintain a steady workout schedule.

You’re built like a friend of mine. I found a wonderful calorie calculator last week that will take the guesswork out of calories. It even includes instructions for subtracting calories from your daily intake to lose weight:

http://www.my-calorie-counter.com/Calorie_Calculator.asp

A healthy weight loss goal is 1-2 lbs/week. To do this, subtract 500-1000 calories from your daily needs. Make sure you mostly eat healthy stuff: lean proteins, veggies, fruits, whole grains and some dairy. A little unhealthy stuff every so often won’t hurt as long as you watch your calories.

As far as breakfast before jogging is concerned, there’s a lot of conflicting research on that one. Some people say you burn more calories if you jog on an empty stomach and some say it doesn’t matter. From my experience, it’s a matter of preference. When I was in the Army, we didn’t always get to eat in the morning before running and we did just fine. Now that I have the choice though, I drink a protein shake in the morning before I work out. It’s a quick, convenient breakfast that gives your body good fuel for a workout.

As far as the meals are concerned, some people swear by the small meals several times a day. I personally can’t do that because I get too hungry in between meals. What really matters is to watch your caloric intake. Then you decide if you want to eat 3, 4, 5 or 6 meals.

If you want to jog before starting the weight training, that is fine. But you can actually alternate the workouts if you want. A workout plan that did wonders for me was to do a full-body weight lifting routine 3 days a week, every other day. On the days when I wasn’t lifting, I would fit in my cardio. On lifting days, I would pick one exercise each for back, chest, triceps, biceps, abs, quads, hamstrings and calves. If you’ve never lifted before, start with 1 set of each exercise (10-15 reps per set) and work your way up to 2-3 sets per exercise. Just make sure you take at least one day off a week and don’t exercise. Your muscles need the rest and will actually grow on your days off.

You’re asking the right questions, and I believe you will be successful if you stick to your plan. Don’t worry if you have a bad day and eat unhealthy or don’t exercise. Just carry on the next day as if it never happened.

Good Luck!

## How do I find my total RE’s in Pokemon Soul Silver?

I remember that there is a place to check how many random encounters you’ve had in some Pokemon games, but I don’t remember if it’s in this game. Does anybody know what I’m talking about and if it is in this game where do I find it?
I am looking for shiny Pokemon and because the odds are 1/8,192 I want to know my RE’s to get an idea of roughly how long it could take to find.

I’m pretty positive there isn’t a way to check that on SoulSilver. I’ve never seen anyone use it as a reference in any videos or on other websites.

On the 5th generation games (Black, Black 2, White, White 2), you can flip over the Trainer Card and scroll down a little to see how many Wild Encounters you’ve done. Keep in mind that it counts double encounters as just a single encounter.

Good luck finding a shiny!

EDIT: Also, sadly, I’m pretty sure there isn’t a poketch app that actually counts encounters. There’s a counter app that let’s you press a button to count up by 1, but you’re better off using a physical calculator.

## How do you put the flower shape on the graphing calculator?

Use the equation r=acos(n0) or r=asin(n0)
the 0 represents theta
the calculator must be in parametrics mode
for the equation the number of petals is determined by n, if it is an even number double it to get number of petals, if its odd then it is not doubled.
