Two Times Stronger?
Two Times Stronger? (Don't read this if you care about real mathematics.) What's the difference between two times stronger, and twice as strong? ? There is an advert which recommends a new deodorant because it is "two times stronger." I suppose the ad men thought saying "two times stronger" would be more effective than saying "twice as strong." But hang onaminute.............Maybe in that context two times stronger is different? After all, if two times stronger was only the same as twice, then what would "one time stronger" be? Ahaaaaa? Not so easy is it. Your thoughts? 


i think it's all in the effort that it takes to say "two times stronger" vs "twice as strong". it's much harder to say "two times stronger" because it has more syllables. it also uses different muscles of your tongue... muscles that require more skill to use, so if you don't use them right, you'll have a sprained tongue. there'fore it is far more impressive to be able to say "Two times stronger" than it is to say "Twice as strong". Twice as strong is for teenagers. Two times stronger is for real men. what do you think? did i figure it out! i love math word problems!!! Author Unknown

But I can't tell you if you figured it out  there is no answer that I know of!

I am trying to figure out the mathematical equation for "two times stronger".... 2xstronger? (2)stronger? S+S=SS^2? Stronger / oder^2 = female attraction? I do suppose it beats an advert that goes something like this... "Our deodorant, it is for guys that stink twice as much as the average man"!!!! Love, E'
 

Sneaky thinking Peter!
 

It's July, it's hot , not the best time for brainteasers lol! I think the ad men thought it was a cool gimmick not many ads use "two times stronger" so it's a novelty, that sort of thing...
 

Haha well, I could think of something distinctly unboring, and a teaser of another kind lol
 

clearly two times stronger is stronger than twice as strong,...or long for that matter,....if something were 2 inches long,...twice as long would be 4 inches,....but two times as long would be 6 inches by my calculumacations Good girls go to heaven,....Bad girls go EVERYWHERE!

I'm with Tigger. If something were quantified as 100, then twice as strong is 2x100 or 200. But two times stronger would equal 100 + 2(100) or 300.

hmmm another two times as strong doesn't exactly rolllll off the toungue now does it,....I honestly wasn't thinking anything in particular in terms of twice as long two times a long,....in the pervy sense,...I just lacked hippichicks mathmatical notation skills and sense besides if I were thinking naughty thoughts I'd be tending more in the direction of girth over length Good girls go to heaven,....Bad girls go EVERYWHERE!

lol you could be correct, however twice as thick is a relative measure so it really would depend upon the starting point Good girls go to heaven,....Bad girls go EVERYWHERE! I love to travel Come visit my blog tigger678902
