Math Mom: If I've Told You N Times, I've Told You N+1 Times

I can practically hear my mother's voice saying "if I told you once, I've told you a thousand times." Well, for this shirt, we've boiled the adage down to its mathematical terms.

Now buy the shirt, stand up straight and go clean your room! http://shop.neatorama.com/product-info.php?math-mom-told-you-n-times-tshirt-pid477.html

Abusive comment hidden.(Show it anyway.)But maybe the saying is different for other people? I've never heard anyone say "If I've told you once, I've told you twice", or "If I've told you 5 times, I've told you 6 times"...

Eh...it's probably just me. :)

equals "I've told you N + 1 x"

So I've told you 1 time

= I've told you 2 times

(here we apply the formula again)

= I've told you 3 times

(and so on, until...)

= I've told you 1,000 times

So If N = N + 1

then N = N + 999

Therefore the formula does work to Sam K !

Abusive comment hidden.(Show it anyway.)i think i read this somewhere before.

but it never beats being printed in t-shirts.

Abusive comment hidden.(Show it anyway.)Now I can't do the same while being angry. =[
