 What is the length in centimeters of the snake? A snake slides through a long cylindrical hole in the ground at 5 centimeters per second. The hole is 5.5 meters in length. The snake takes 15 seconds to enter the hole. What is the length in centimeters of the snake? Calculate the number 393 NUMBERMANIA: Calculate the number 393 using numbers [8, 2, 3, 6, 20, 25] and basic arithmetic operations (+, -, *, /). Each of the numbers can be used only once.

### Stefan Banach

Born 30 Mar 1892; died 31 Aug 1945 at age 53.Polish mathematician who founded modern functional analysis and helped develop the theory of topological vector spaces. In addition, he contributed to measure theory, integration, the theory of sets, and orthogonal series. In his dissertation, written in 1920, he defined axiomatically what today is called a Banach space. The idea was introduced by others at about the same time (for example Wiener introduced the notion but did not develop the theory). The name 'Banach space' was coined by Fréchet. Banach algebras were also named after him. The importance of Banach's contribution is that he developed a systematic theory of functional analysis, where before there had only been isolated results which were later seen to fit into the new theory.
