Hello Zaid,
I can tell you like this, I am happy that your integral problem you post. I never got them in homework or exam... they are so difficult and I thought I was getting good with it... It always make me think is this something I should be able to solve with the knowledge I gained...
PS. I guess your famous now?

PS. I guess your famous now?

The first statistic you cited is dynamically generated at the time, while the number of views a topic has had is updated periodically to reduce server load. So you may see discrepancies like this from time to time.

This stuff always seems to be cached. Good luck getting an accurate reading of current viewers on any forum

As usual, the rule of 10-100 applies, that is, for any thread on the internet, out of X viewers, on average only 1 will reply/comment/etc.. where X is a constant between 10 and 100 depending on the forum.
