Isn't it weird how linear algebra is a whole lot harder than intermediate algebra?

My suggestion would be to find a good, real-life study group whom you can work with. Try to study with people who are about on the same level as you are. Otherwise, you'll either be tutoring people or you'll feel dumb compared to everyone else in your group.

If this isn't on your test, well... it should be. If you pour liquid into the container depicted on this diagram, then 2 + 2 will NEVER equal 4 (without a plug, at least).

 -

Or, if you live in Eurasia or Oceania, then 2 + 2 can equal 5. But that's another issue...

Snuggle these facts onto a brain cell. May they serve you well on your numeric journeys.

Wow... this thread has me confused. I thought I could cope with algebra, but we haven't even heard the question and we already have complex diagrams and stuff.

The only bit I got was the Nineteen Eighty-Four reference...

(Seriously though, was there a point to this thread? Did the first post originally contain the question, and has now been changed because the 'test is over'? What's going on?)

EDIT: closed a mischievous bracket.

A new thread was accidentally started. This was meant to be a reply in her other thread, I think.

So if a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half, how long would it take a cricket with a wooden leg to kick all of the seeds out of a dill pickle?

Actually since WW2 and the liberation of the northeast Marshmellows have developed bone like structers. Of course in a weird mutation of them they are now being seen flying over New Hampshire. The US Government is really worried about it. But do to such changes the answer is "Pie" I'm sorry good luck next time.

Dude, your forgot to factor in the weight-to-cheese ratio, making your answer totally off.

Next time, I'd suggest checking your library of mutton chops.
