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.

It can just be left as 7/100. The only reason to put in, 'units',' is to remind the person to put in the correct units if they are in the problem. This would happen if the question was in were in another

Sorry about how long this took, but I finally got back to my computer. 'Units' is used to show that the numerator and denominator are measured in the same thing. Instead of units there might be seconds

Multiplying by percentages does no change the units involved. Note that 7% is really 7/100 and has no units. It only means 7 units / 100 units, whatever unit is used. This means that 7% of $5.00 is

Let A be the number of uprights and B be the number of spinets. The total time is 40 hours a week, and that is 2A + 3B, so the equation is 3A + 2B = 40. The tuner would like to earn $560. The total

When we divide by 1,000, what we are really doing is multiplying by 1 kilowatt/1000 watts. The watts cancel and we are left with kilowatts. That's one thing I learned in physics. Always make sure
