....The "Silva" Challenge....

you want math ms. silva??
well.. it's 6:12 pm..... i'll jus give a brief explanation to what we did today..
we learned... substitution... no.... not the substitution in a basketball game...
my defenition of substitution is...
"substitution is simply, giving the variables in a polynomial a certain value"
sound simple...
it really is..
hehehe ... here we go..


say we play a game....
in this "game" we start off with 50 points each...
and for every correct answer we get... we get 3 points...(each correct answer i get is represented by a x)

so.. our starting number of points is 50... now this never changes....
we ALWAYS start with 50... so this "50" is our constant...

then.... say i got ten correct answer.... to get how many points i have..
this is what i was taught to do...

10 x + 50

10 x means i got TEN of x..... now... to get how many is 10x... this is what we do

how many did i score? = 10 ( <--this is how many i scored)
how many points per score? = 3 (<--this is what the x means.)

so.... i multiply it.... 10 (3) = 30

now i know how many i scored..
30.... and i started with 50... so i add that...
30
+ 50 (<--this is our constant.. the number of points we started with...)
= 80

simple ryt?
aight... i gtg....(got to go.)
take care all!!!!
buh bye!!

oh yeah... leave a comment... please?
heheheh
i'll give you a cookie..

PEACE!!

heheheheh.. it's easy man...
say we have 10 x...
normally.. what we wud do is leave it like that ryt?
but say we give x a value?
let's say... 5...

now... 10 x means we have 10 of the variable x ryt?
so.. we get our total by multiplying it...

so..
x = 5
and the equation 10x
means.. 10 (5) = 50
therefore...
10x = 50

any more questions ryan?

Well Arvin,
I think you may have found your calling as a math teacher...I couldn't have explained it any better myself. It's pretty exciting to have others learn from explanations, isn't it??
