    Splott solved it like this: 2x + 4 = –3x + 14 2x + 4 + 3x = –3x + 14 + 3x 5x + 4 = 14 5x + 4 + 4 = 14 + 4 5x = 18 5 x divided by 5 is equal to 18 divided by 5 x = 18 over 5

    Fizzle solved it like this: 2x + 4 = –3x + 14 2x + 4 – 2x = –3x + 14 – 2x 4 = 14 – 5x 4 – 14 = 14 – 5x – 14 –12 = –5x –12 + 5 = –5x + 5 –7 = x

    x + 4 = –3x + 14 2x + 4 + 3x = –3x + 14 + 3x CORRECT 5x + 4 = 14 CORRECT 5x + 4 + 4 = 14 + 4 WRONG, he should have subtracted 4 both sides 5x = 18 5 x divided by 5 is equal to 18 divided by 5 x = 18 over 5

    Both functions are quadratics, of degree 2. I've seen this question before, and it makes no more sense now than it did last time.

    I have a maths degree and I don't understand it either. I don't know what "operation" it's even referring to, and both functions have the same degree.

    i think the "operation" refers to leg and arm movement and heat generated thereof

    what have you got? because i studied maths at uni and i reckon this a very ambiguous question

    This is an awful question. It's hard to tell whether the degree refers to heat, or polynomial degree. In either case, both are essentially the same answer.

    I agree. It's a stupid question to start with. Needs more info in order to obtain some sort of a sensible solution
