A new page: Solving Word Questions

It has LOTS of examples, hopefully no errors

Let me know what you think ... is it a good approach to teaching this?

Hi MIF;

Big page! Should help a lot.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
