This is an algebraic topic, not spelling, but if I can figure out how I'll try to fix the topic. [:-\]


You know I'm only doing this to annoy you! [;)]

heres something hard

  A      B          C
(5,-3) (7,9) and (9,-15)   find the perimeter of the plane

and to make it even harder find the midpoint of each side for the plane

uh... in my defense on this one, the school i went to just fired my geometry teacher because they found out that her students all went to the other teacher and asked for help because our teacher was an idiot. she's the reason i graduated with a 3.7. i was also grounded for a month for having a d in her class. it took them 8 years to figure it out at the school though...

Carolyn is such a PI! (I don't mean pi) ;-) Here is how you figure out the correct answer(your hint Karen, even I make mistakes which is probably how Carolyn found me out...

Now add 1289 + 34 =1323 -22 = 1301 + 17 = 1318 + 1456 =2774 -839 = 1935  [;D]

1935 is the true answer! 1885 & 1884 is incorrect!  I just thought our little Mathematican would bust me and teach me correctly...  [:P]

Instead we have the forum detective trying to correct me while I waited!  [:P] Glad I am seeing you tomorrow [;D]

Just as I suspected!

Thank God!  I thought I was losing my mind!  Everytime I worked it out I came up with 1935.  Gosh, you had me thinking I was missing something!

Glad I'm seeing you tomorrow too!

This is the original  equation some different then the new one posted! but the same.. I have really messed up adding because I have done it again and indeed it is 1935 LOL!

Very good so far! Now add 1289 + 34 -22 + 17 +1456 -839 hehe
