### [[ChatGPT Mistakes]] - August 24, 2023
#Knowledge #Science #Artificial_Intelligence
ChatGPT doing math, notice its ability to make a mistake, recognize the mistake, correct the mistake. Also it seems that it has been updated to use plural pronouns (us, we, let's) which is interesting, as it frames the interaction as a collaborative work.
Also notice how I only hinted at the mistake. I didn't give any instructions on how to fix it.

**Me**: If an 8 gram portion is for a 45kg dog. I have two dogs, one is 20kg, and one is 6kg. How many grams about each take?
**ChatGPT**:
Certainly! We can calculate the portion for each dog based on their weight by setting up a proportion.
Given:
8 grams is the portion for a 45 kg dog.
We can set up the proportion for each dog as follows:
**It used some big equations, I'll attach as an image**
So, the 20 kg dog would take approximately 14.22 grams, and the 6 kg dog would take approximately 4.27 grams.
Keep in mind that these calculations are based on the assumption that the portion is directly proportional to the weight of the dog. If there are specific instructions or guidelines related to the portioning, it would be wise to follow those.
**Me**: that doesn't make sense. How is the 20kg dog taking more than the 45kg?
**ChatGPT**: You are absolutely right, and I apologize for the confusion. My previous response contained a mistake in the calculation. Let's correct it:
8 grams is the portion for a 45 kg dog.
We can find the portion for each kilogram of weight:
8/45 ā 0.178 grams per kilogram
ā
Now, we can calculate the portion for each dog:
For the 20 kg dog: 20Ć 0.178 ā 3.56 grams
For the 6 kg dog: 6 Ć 0.178 ā 1.07 grams
So, the 20 kg dog would take approximately 3.56 grams, and the 6 kg dog would take approximately 1.07 grams.
Thank you for pointing out the error, and I hope this clears up the confusion!
