HOw are you supposed to solve this without equations?
It's possible. It's just that you can't (maybe yet).
I bet you can't show us a solution that doesn't use equations, if not explicitly then implicitly
ready for solution?
No. We're still thinking.
i actually ans a similar problem using this method. (1 day ago also on OpenStudy)
let me try this and see if it works. i think it is really no different from solving the equation
3 5 4 7 ____ 1 2 2 3 is it right?
I have seen this is in the old mathschallenge.net
Yes 1 star problem.
yup 12 chickens and 23 rabbits - got to be
your arithmetic isn't bad, satellite
ok that does it. kind of cool huh?
Diagram method: 1. Draw 35 circles, representing heads. Each animal must have at least 2 legs (assume animals are in good condition). 2. Draw 2 "sticks" out of each circle, representing legs. 3. Keep drawing legs until the number of legs reach 94. 4. COUNT.
ok there are like 200 pages here.
Almost the problem "BIRDS AND BUNNIES". Btw not interesting there is no reason of why shouldn't I use equations here.
Right .... what I should have asked is : "Why solve it without equations?" It's clearly much faster than barnyard drawings.
agree with ffm
i am fairly certain it is the same. divide by two and subtract, but it does kind of look cool just writing the answer down without variables. i like it
Oh gee. Can't we just have a little fun without carping?
i still think it is cool, but i can't find the problem on the link ffm sent
Problem ID: 351
@ffm lol, they are not in order!!!
how about a page number. i still can't find it
Page number 16
oh but this is just the regular solve using equation method, i did something different
number of head 3 5 half number of fee 4 7 subtract 1 2 subtract again 2 3
Why is this working?
that is for the first line subtract 3 from 4 and 5 from 7 for second line subtract 1 from 3 and 2 from 5
that is why i thought it was cool
