# Ryan's Problem Solving post.

Hello everyone! I'm Ryan and im here to tell you how to do problem solving in algebra!

I will will demonstrate 2 ideas on how to solve Problem solving.

So the first thing to do in order to solve a problem is to read the question 3 times.

After you have read the question u must write out the answer. when i say answer i mean you write the answer but with a blank. e.g ( Jerry owns ___ comic books). after u have done that u start to solve it.

So the First question that we are doing is..

Ben and Jerry together own

**24**comic books. If Ben owns 6 CB's ( Comic Books), how many does Jerry own? So our answer will be Jerry owns ___ CB's.
But before we do anything we have to do our statement. Let C be Jerry's CB's.

Now we try to solve and answer the question .

As you can see the answer is 18. Since now we know the answer we can put the answer on the blank space. Jerry owns

__CB's.__**18**
Our second question is..

Hans Klobber sells vacuum cleaners. He gets one eight of his sales as a commission. How much must he sell in order to get $1000?

If i tell u guys what commission means i think it will help u understand more of whats happening.

so Commission means the fraction of your total sale. Basically means one eight of your sales.

Now our statement or Variable will be Let x be Hans sales. so that will leave to our answer which is Hans must sell ____ to earn $1000.

As you can see the answer is 8000. So now we put 8000 into the blank space.

Hans must sell $8000 to earn $1000.

If you guys still don't understand here is a video

I know a lot of words, but i think its good!

Great Scribe Ryan, since I wasn't at school on Thursday afternoon I got to read what you've learned that day and I now know what we have learned. Next time maybe make the photo a little bit bigger so we can see it.

ReplyDeletewell done on your scribe post Ryan! the pictures had some pretty great explanations in there but next time I suggest making your pictures bigger next time. over all, you did a pretty great job on your first scribe post.

ReplyDeleteWell done Scribe Post Ryan. I like the picture you used to attract us, the people but it is a bit childish if I say so myself. Like I said with Han's Scribe Post I would like the pictures you embedded into your post much larger. I can't even read or see what is on the pictures.
