I think the answer was close to 67?! Or am I wrong?

I cannot give you the answer because they regenerate the problem with new numericals every time I open the page.

Looks like all of them can be knocked off by geogebra and you would gain the experience you need with a great package.

First 2 I saw that were real math problems geogebra can do easily.

The first 2 I saw were clearly geometry problems. Geogebra is the first choice there.

Yes, you can but aren't we discussing using math software on them?

I would think that is the central issue here, trying to wean you off of procedural programming and into a CAS.

Do you become a different person because you are in a different thread. These threads are all related.
