Another curvy question… Tell me a true story involving these three

  1. 92db6d998fab87a98e9bd783377b9fb6
  2. 756d3bad6799ab385f814a7b4eaec831
  3. 8c77e343147fcc959af641ff033399e7

Jean Valjean , p vs np , Raghuvansh , udupendra , varuns88 , shrik , malcaluffin , sidsen , sand , Anand Krishna Shankar , Dibyo and darthshak told me the right story.

Answer:

  1. Maria Gaeta Agnesi
  2. The curve: The witch of Agnesi
  3. John Colson

Colson mistranslated “The curve of Agnesi” into “The witch of Agnesi”, hence forever naming this curve this way.
