    Can you think of any ways you can shorten this problem? That is what they are asking for when they say simplify.

    Alright, well let's look at this thing: ( ( ½)2 – ( ¼ )3 ) x 23 Now, if it were up to you, would you rather multiply two by half and subtract a quarter of 3, or would you rather just have 1 - 3/4?

    Um.. Let's just ignore what I said before.

    Here, they want you to simplify an expression. The simplest thing we could possibly have for this problem is a single number, is that correct?

    Would you rather have one easy number or a long phrase? Suppose I wanted to tell you to got to the store and buy one egg. Would you rather have me ask you to get one egg or to get a fourth of four eggs?
