In Morse Code, which letter does a single dot represent?

E

Morse code is named after Samuel Morse, an inventor of the telegraph. To increase the efficiency of encoding, Morse code was designed so that the length of each symbol is approximately inverse to the frequency of occurrence of the character that it represents in text of the English language.

The mathematical fact that 7+8 = 8+7 is known as what?

Commutative law

Answer: The commutative law is a basic property used in mathematics. It states that the order in which you add or multiply two real numbers does not affect the result. Stated symbolically when we add: a + b = b + a and when we multiply: a × b = b × a. From these laws it follows that any finite sum or product is unaltered by reordering its terms or factors. The word commutative is a combination of the French word commuter meaning "to substitute or switch" and the suffix -ative meaning "tending to" so the word literally means "tending to substitute or switch."

Which snack was invented by an Italian monk?

Pretzels

Answer: Most sources agree that the pretzel was invented by an Italian monk in the year 610 A.D. According to The History of Science and Technology, the monk baked strips of dough that he folded into a shape resembling a child crossing its arms in prayer. He would give these treats, which he called “pretiolas” or “little rewards,” to children who had memorized their prayers. The children got to eat them as snacks when they did good and a fad was born. Early pretzels were of the “soft” variety; hard pretzels are a relatively modern invention.

Answer: During a two-hour live television special on April 21, 1986, Geraldo Rivera opened a secret vault in the Lexington Hotel that was once owned by Al Capone. The live event was hyped as potentially revealing great riches or dead bodies on live television. This included the presence of a medical examiner should bodies be found, and agents from the Internal Revenue Service to collect any of Capone's money that might be discovered. When the vault was finally opened, the only things found inside were dirt and several empty bottles. Geraldo admitted defeat and voiced his disappointment to the 30 million viewers that tuned in to watch the event.

Although the poem is is often associated with heartbreak after a break up, it was actually written about Tennyson’s best friend Arthur Henry Hallam (the “A.H.H.” in the title), who died suddenly at aged 22.
