[09:44:05] I'm updating the translation of https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Abstract_Wikipedia and I have questions...
[09:44:05] It says: "More complicated functions can answer more complicated questions, such as the area of a three dimensional shape"
[09:44:07] Is it supposed to be "area" or "volume"? I didn't do much with geometry since 1996 or so, and I never did geometry in English :)
[09:46:53] sounds odd to me too… could be the surface area, the volume, or possibly the area of a two-dimensional surface within three-dimensional space (if it’s curved or otherwise nontrivial)
[09:47:45] since it seems to be an arbitrary example, changing it to “volume” might be the simplest solution :)
[09:49:56] Thanks :)
[11:50:21] Yeah (re @lucaswerkmeister: since it seems to be an arbitrary example, changing it to “volume” might be the simplest solution :))
[12:56:42] agreed that volume would be most sensible
[12:58:36] surface area would be ok too, but Lucas's third example is too complicated for me :D
