 I went to BetterExplained through one of Ray‘s links and its freaking awesome.

I just read an entry, which explains the following formula, not in 2 but 4 different ways.

I wish somebody had explained formulas like this to me in school, or I had bothered learning maths this way, I would have been a genius by now.  Thanks Ray & Thanks to Kalid Azad, for explaining it in such simple way!
