Math, the road less travelled
The scenic road. Only the experienced drivers can take this path of extreme beauty.
The question sounds incomplete. Was their a diagram to go with it?
I will ponder on it. I am a chartered engineer and I carry out complex calculations a lot, but they relate to a real situation. These exam type questions are outside my comfort zone!
That's what I normally deal with. I frequently use whole small numbers in my mind, to discover the relationship that exists between them!
I do. But I only tell people HOW to solve a problem TYPE. I don't do their homework.
Then why are you asking it?
I'm in high school, but I learned this in 6th grade o.o xD But I mean... What else did you expect from someone called "MathematicallyMindedFractal?" xD
I would have done that, too, but I wasn't there to take the EIC in 6th grade, and as such, could not take Algebra 1 in 7th. I ended up taking Geometry online in 8th alongside Geometry, and got put into Algebra 2 in 9th. A similar thing happened in 10th. My precalc teacher hated me, and didn't let me go to calculus this past year. Nie while I love statistics, I now can't take Calculus BC my senior year. I'm technically not even allowed to take AB next year, but I'm going to beg my guidance counselor.
:P yup. I teach myself a lot of math. I know calculus, topology, fractal geometry, and more x3
Yes, it's called doing you own homework.
Unless you are planning on going into a field of work that requires you to know this; you will not need to remember yourself.
Word problems are supposed to get you to think more about the problem.
Because it's extremely important, and none of us want a world filled with imbeciles that cannot do simple math.
