Hi I need help fixing my answer

5. There are two barbers in a town. Barber A has a clean shop and a nice hair-cut. Barber B has a dirty shop and a horrible hair-cut. If you want to get a good haircut, which barber should you go to? Explain why.

5. I would go to barber A if I want to get a good haircut because I have a statement and general information that say barber A has a clean shop and a nice hair-cut and barber B has the opposite.

That was incorrect my teacher said

#5 This problem tells us that there are only 2 barbers in town. So, who do you think probably gave Barber A his nice haircut? And is there a logical reason that Barber B's shop is messy?

and maybe the reason A's shop is so clean is because he has no customers. I'm inferring ( type of reasoning ? ) that other people know more about A than we have been told.

Bob

I can take up to 8 courses a year am currently taking biology and geometry I finished English, PE, American government and algebra.

Wow! That's a lot to do, all by self study. Well done! So do you have plans for what to do next ?

Hi zee-f;

I think you will enjoy Algebra 2. I have never asked you about your plans after you graduate. Will you head to the work? Or will you seek higher education?
