This is ridiculously easy I know but....I have been relying on a calculator to figure out even the most simple of equations for far too long.... The problem i have is: #2 20050623 21:04:41
Re: This is ridiculously easy I know but....Think of 10,500 as 7/8, because 1/8 (the amount fallen) + 7/8 is a whole. #3 20050623 21:10:19
Re: This is ridiculously easy I know but....Thank you... I knew it'd be simple! I'm struggling with another mind numbingly simple sum now... If you had a garden with two plots that was 12m by 12m with a path running straight through the middle of it 2m across what area of turf would be needed to cover the plots? #4 20050623 21:50:07
Re: This is ridiculously easy I know but....I assume the WHOLE garden is 12m x 12m and the garden path divides it into two plots. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
