HOw are you supposed to solve this without equations?
LollyLau
  • LollyLau
It's possible. It's just that you can't (maybe yet).
anonymous
  • anonymous
I bet you can't show us a solution that doesn't use equations, if not explicitly then implicitly

i actually ans a similar problem using this method. (1 day ago also on OpenStudy)

  • anonymous
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

o rly?

Yes 1 star problem.

yup 12 chickens and 23 rabbits - got to be

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.

Almost the problem "BIRDS AND BUNNIES". Btw not interesting there is no reason of why shouldn't I use equations here.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right .... what I should have asked is : "Why solve it without equations?" It's clearly much faster than barnyard drawings.
anonymous
  • anonymous
agree with ffm
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Oh gee. Can't we just have a little fun without carping?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i still think it is cool, but i can't find the problem on the link ffm sent

@ffm lol, they are not in order!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
how about a page number. i still can't find it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Page number 16

  • anonymous
oh but this is just the regular solve using equation method, i did something different
anonymous
  • anonymous
number of head 3 5 half number of fee 4 7 subtract 1 2 subtract again 2 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why is this working?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is why i thought it was cool
