In this post you will see how math can be used to solve crime . in the pilot episode of number ,charlie a mathemetition,uses grids,equations and probobility to find the origin of the of the rapist\killer (origin meaning home\work.He uses a map that have a bunch of dots on it.These dots represent the victims of the rapist.He uses numbers and geometry for example in class we took three points and used these dots to construct a triangle.By finding a perpendicular bisector of each side of the triangle we were able to find the circumcenter which gave them a potential area the perp might be found(work or home).Using geometry and charlie's expreties they used a computer to find a murderer
