Below is a math problem solver that lets you input a wide variety of math problems and it will provide the final answer for free. The version below will show you the final answer only.
You'll see a button "View steps" and this takes you to the developer's site where you can purchase the full version of the solver (where you can see the steps).
* Students can take turns working out word problems on the whiteboard while students at their seats work to arrive at a common solution.
The hardest thing about doing word problems is using the part where you need to take the English words and translate them into mathematics.
I did this on a calculus test — thank heavens it was a short test! (Technically, the "greater than" construction, in "Addition", is also backwards in the math from the English.
— and, trust me, you don't want to do this to yourself! Certain words indicate certain mathematica operations. But the order in addition doesn't matter, so it's okay to add backwards, because the result will be the same either way.) Also note that order is important in the "quotient/ratio of" and "difference between/of" constructions.
You would be expected to understand that this meant that she worked eight hours for each of the four days Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday; and six hours for each of the two days Wednesday and Saturday.
Suppose you're told that Shelby earns "time and a half" for any hours she works over forty for a given week.
On the Modeling Tools tab, students will find modeling tool videos on addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, ratios, decimals and percents, and algebra.
