In case everyone doesn't read all the post. Angelfinder wants you to look at this problem and gave a site for math problems
Here is part of her post:
Here's one you all can work on to see if you can help.
Simple problem really..but they keep telling me the answers are wrong...but they are not. I will use words first to show the problem.
R>____ divided by _____ Plus _____ times _____ equals 30
9 / 3 + 3 x 5 = 30 wrong
9 / 3 + 7 x 3 =30 wrong
8 / 2 +2 x 5 = 30 wrong
4 / 2 + 8 x 3 = 30 wrong
I got frustrated and quit, now it's bothering me for the right answer. Can anyone help, before I go crazy trying to figure it out? lol ( This is bad for the old brain).
I'm horrible at math so I know I'm not the one to figure it out. Although, if they aren't crediting the correct answer, they should be notified. Lets see what others have to say.
