# What's the relation between chess and math?

i don't recall ever having a geometry textbook. We had very good teachers that prepared the lessons manually.

Remember seeing the proof of the area of a triangle?

Proof of area of triangle is intuitive. You just make a parallelogram out of it and then divide by half.

If you need proof of area of parallelogram then you just cut out two triangles and make a rectangle out of it. If you need proof of area of rectangle then idk, look up calculus.

haha .. ive known some people who could play sensational chess but couldn't solve a math problem and vice versa.

look spongey, just because you drag out a super basic geometry formula is completely redundant. There is Math inside chess even if you were bad at math / pray for math to be removed from life, whatever your beef is with math.

You can't change that fact, and you are just starting to sound like an old dog panting in the wind

Since when did triangle area require a proof?

Since everything we know in maths is known because of proofs.

Perhaps, if you look in a geometry textbook, you will get some idea about the degree to which the subject is concerned with proof.

Ever seen a chess book refer to the angles of a triangle adding up to 180 degrees?

I'll see if I can elucidate your point more effectively here as you seem to be struggling.

I will have to paraphrase your posts thus far.

Maths is NOT involved in chess, as I can drag up Year 1-5 maths problems that have nothing to do with chess.

Therefore, there is almost no maths in chess.

Is that how your brain works spongey?

At this time, for the purpose of expressing my thinking, I have no desire to add anything to the words that I have already chosen.

"... I am trying to advocate consideration of what is different."
