This thread is a continuation of another one I had that went way off topic.

Post your algebraic equations for everyone to solve, and lets talk about the current state of this country's education system in between. Lets play nice haha

Solve for x
47 + 98 * 5/3 + 4(15(9/3)) = x

2. x=390.333....?

It'd be easier if the problems weren't on a single line - it looks messy...

47 + 98 * 5 / 3 + (4 * ( 15 * ( 9 / 3 ))) = x
47 + (( 98 * 5) / 3) + (4 * ( 15 * 3)) = x
47 + (490 / 3) + (4 * 45) = x
47 + 163.33 + 180 = x
390.33 = x

4. i dont get what you mean by single line?? this is a very common format of this type of equation

5. Nevermind

Say there's a hotel with a countable, infinite # of rooms. All of the rooms are occupied.

One guest arrives. What room do you place him in?

6. epic.

This is so much better then my answer

10. oh fuck hes right...

11. were learning algebra in class. I cant belive i didnt even make it pass pre-algebra lol. But outta all the subjects, i like math more.

12. The room after the last room you put the previous person in? c:

13. In middle school, we all got apple laptops and it was an utter waste of time and money. Now that I look back on it theres probably nothing useful I would've learned anyways.

Considering the taxes probably are going up in my area for all this "helpful" technology I should like do something about this shit like write some letters and support Joe writer schmo. At least they could buy PCs instead of expansive ass MacBooks.

I also remember we had like a month or two learning cursive in 3rd/4th grade. My teacher said "All your teachers will expect you to hand in your papers written in cursive"

14. This is more about logic.

15. ya hahahaha i remember hearing that all the time. i was great at cursive, but never ended up using it for anything other than personal things

16. Can anyone do Interest rates?

Say you go to the car dealer. U buy a car for \$13,000.00 with a interest rate of 6%. You have 5 years to pay it off.

What is much interest will you pay off at the end of your payment?

How much will u pay all together including interests?

How much will you pay every month?

Heres the Forumula:

i=prt

Dude I'm confused as fuck

18. total cost = \$13,780

interest = \$780

monthly payments = \$229.66666

19. MUST SHOW WORK OR U ONLY GET HALF CREDIT !!!!i

20. The only thing confusing is in how it is stated...there is no missing money, the question just makes you think there is...

The \$27 paid is the \$25 for the room plus the \$2 that the bellhop took...of the original \$30...\$25 for the room...\$2 for the bellhop...\$3 (3 x \$1) returned to the guests...so...25 + 2 + 3 = 30...no missing money...
