I have answered every question that was a story problems that had any relation to math for which an answer existed. I have ever answered some questions which had a vague relation to math, but still related.

My experience is from when I started doing story problems in grade school. I have been assisting, helping, and bringing smiles to many others ever since. Are you the next one?

In over 850 questions answered to other users. Maybe you're the next one ...

I received a BA in Mathematical Sciences from OSU and a MS in Mathematics from OSU as well.

I earned Both my BS degree and MS degree with honors for having such a high grade point average.

I have answered hundreds and hundreds of students at OSU in the 80's and over 8,500 questions right here, but only a little over 850 of them have been word problems.

Its always the same. Sure, what is being measured may vary, but its always the same.

I aspire to assist many more in mathematics by demonstrating how to do the problem.

If there is a pizza involved in writing this question to me, you might have the leftovers when I answer it.

Some say its my word against yours, but I just say it all comes down to a word problem.

Now they really are the same number, but sometimes more places are kept for different reasons. One of them is that's how many decimal places accuracy are to be kept on the machine being used. Where

A fraction like that is not really legible. Let X=men, Y=meters, and Z=days. We have X/Y/Z, but is that (X/Y)/Z, which is X/(YZ), or X/(Y/Z), which is XZ/Y? Since we have 2 men and 1 meter in a day

Yes, that is correct. Since 1*4*6 = 24 and 2*3*5 = 30, the answer is 24/30 = 4/5. There are two division symbols, as in a/b/c where a = 1/2, b = 3/4, and c = 5/6. The rule of division, when two operations

By the way (which was most likely a type), it is Ratios (not Ratos). I think the response is yes, but a better way to phrase it would be like this. One item (x) is outselling another item (y) by

Perhaps it would be better to write it as (30 shares) [($0.60/quarter)/shares)] (3 years) (4 quarters/year). Then note that [($0.60/quarter)/shares)] is really [($0.60/quarter)/(shares/1)]. On fractions
