    • (i) is just finding common factor.

      (ii) is ambiguous... how can you cancel the 6 just like that? This is not division, or any other recognized mathematical method.

      (iii) the question already doesn’t make sense. If follow the equation stated in the question, the second number is 3, not 2.

      Forget about the (iv).

      What kind of question is this?

      Is this a joke?

      Don’t insult our intelligence leh.

    • CR9, if your son needs Chemistry help, he can post his questions here and I'll advise. For Mathematics, you'll have to see if anyone's willing to reply. The mathematics experts WeeWS and Eagle only drop by here occasionally.

    • Fire breaks out in heritage terrace house at Towner Road; no injuries reported

      SINGAPORE - An air-con unit in the bedroom of a heritage terrace house along Towner Road caught fire on Wednesday (Oct 18) afternoon, sending black smoke rising into the air.

      There were no reported injuries. The Straits Times understands that the house was unoccupied.

      The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to the fire at 104 Towner Road at 2.19pm, and put it out using a water jet and a compressed air foam backpack.

      A fire engine, two fire bikes and a support vehicle were dispatched.

      The air-con unit was located on the second-floor of the house. SCDF added that the cause of the fire is under investigation.

      Environment control officer Mohamed Irwan Masop, 37, was in the area to visit friends for Deepavali when he spotted a fire engine and police cars outside the house.

      "There was no evacuation and I didn't see any flames - only smoke," he said.

      Ms Cheryl Huan, chief operating officer of Far East Organization's corporate real estate business group, said in a statement on Wednesday evening that the house was being prepared for handover to an incoming tenant when the fire occurred.

      "Everyone in the unit as well as the immediate neighbours were evacuated to safety," she added. "We believe this is an isolated incident. We are currently investigating the cause of the fire.”

      The colonial-style terrace house is part of the historic Townerville estate, which consists of six blocks of 84 two-storey units built in the 1920s.

      Known for their distinct features such as high ceilings, open-air courtyards and picture rails, they were restored by the government at a cost of $12.4 million in 1990.

      Far East Organization bought all 84 houses for $39 million that same year in an open tender, and currently leases them out for commercial and residential use.

      After closing BV swimming pool, and now if closing the BV bus terminal as well... I think I better sell my BV flat fast.

       

      It's best to keep the BV terminal as it is.

       

      Other estates are having better amenities, only my estate having amenities taken away.

      Meanwhile LTA will be sorting out the viable solutions on how the current airport services and a few services with height constraints, which adds up to a handful, are to continue operations when the last bendy bus retires. Most likely they might add on a few services to divert the crowds, use short working trips for areas of these routes that have high demands but do not need to go to the airport, or creative route amendments as in 807 and 860 case. Else they may alter the infrastructures that can accommodate double deckers. 

      It's going to be interesting observations and changes for these services in the years going forward. 

       

      Keep on waiting... I bet w you 50 big that at least for the next decade... buses will continue going into the basements... they had a great chance to build a new terminal, and they decided to fk it...

    • 觉得热就应该多喝水来降低热量。

      If feel hot, drink water to lower the temperature.

      设施应该是足够容纳铰接客车的,稍微调整一下就可以了。

      我倒觉得机场巴士路线将永久使用铰接客车,除非到时候 Cross Island Line 和 Thomson East Coast Line 开了以后,乘客们对机场巴士的需求减少,机场巴士路线才有可能全用低乘客量的单层巴士营运。

      至于未来会发生什么事情,我们难以确认,因为局势一直不断的变化。然而,目前可以确定的是在可预见的未来,铰接客车是不会被淘汰,因为机场和一些路段是不能容纳双层巴士,而只要穿行这些地方的巴士路线需要高乘客量巴士,我们还是需要铰接客车来满足乘客们的需求。

      The infrastructure should be able to accommodate bendy buses. Probably just a few adjustments would be required.

      I feel that the airport bus routes will always require bendy buses, unless one day when the Cross Island Line and Thomson East Coast Line open and the passenger demand no longer require the bus routes to have high capacity buses.

      As for what will happen in future, we are unable to confirm, because the situation keeps changing. Nonetheless, what we can confirm is that bendy buses will not be disqualified in the foreseeable future. Because the airport and some areas cannot accommodate double-decker buses, as long as the bus routes plying these places require high capacity buses, we will still require bendy buses to meet the passenger demand.
