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.

Question:
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.

Thanks for the sites, I've tried some of them. Some are quite fun...and you can learn just how much work your brain really needs. LOL

But not to be picky, I tried the math game...simple addition work and it has me frustrated. Wonder how you can find the answers they really want?

I was doing pretty good till this one stuck me and I can't move on past it or it won't even tell me the right answer.

Thanks for sharing. I love games! It's been fun for me to try to find exercise that feels like games or to make a game or purpose out of exercise.

Another good site is www.luminosity.com. It's both, paid and free, and paid is cheap. Thanks for sharing!! I love puzzles especially Sudoku.
