Two people P and Q independently, had to babysit on a particular day. They are given the following instruction:
"If baby cries, feed it with the milk in the bottle."
Now it's P's turn. P found the baby was not crying and attended to his/her work while keeping an eye on the baby.
Then Q gets his/her turn. Q also found the was not crying..but he/she made it crying so that he/she can feed it with the milk in the bottle.
Who is the mathematician? Make a guess..
It's Q. Why?
Q found that when the baby was not crying, the action was undefined, hence an unresolved situation. Therefore, he/she made it crying so that the situation was reduced to an already solved problem. :D
