Ask your maths teacher.

Must do a bit of gardening while the weather is so fantastic -- but later I will explain why I have severe reservations about this mathematical "proof"........ largely based on the fact that Ned has got his assumptions all wrong.

Ask your maths teacher? On balance I think I would prefer to ask a glacial geomorphologist.
