That’s math HW? Looks like a logic puzzler.

its a different kind of math course

it involves stuff no one really does anymore, which is cool cause at least its not calculus or algebra but it sucks cause theres no tutors for it.

we do stuff like place values

base 2 (0,1), base 5(0,1,2,3,4), base 6(0,…6), base 20 (0…19)

modular math

mod 7 (days of weeks) mod 12 (clocks/time)

so like if you wanted to know what day it would be 945 days from today, theres a simple formula for that

some examples

T or F

4+9 = 1 mod 12

7*9 = 22 mod 8

2 = 2001 mod 8

5 - 7 = 24 mod 4

Montgomery College has 50-piece band and a 36 piece orchestra if 14 people are members of both the band and the orchestra can the band and orchestra travel in 2 40 passenger buses? Solve using a Venn diagram.

mad easy.

Let p represent the statement “Pries will rise.”

and q represent the statement “Inflation will be controlled.”

Translate each of the following statements into symbols

Prices will rise, or inflation will not be controlled

p v ~q

prices will rise, but inflation will not be controlled

§~q

…i mean youre taught the symbols b4 hand.

this class isnt really that hard, but no one studies for it so people dont do as great as youd expect because you dont put as much effort as you would into something more complex, which is really funny in an ironic way.

I took this same kind of math class last year. The worst part to me was having to write out every single step to solve the retardedly easy problems.
