Mathematics....

Recommended Posts

Easily my worst subject in school. I was never good at math, never will be I dont think. In community college I got drunk one night and lit my statistics book on fire i hated that goddamn thing so much...it was the most frustrating and teeth grinding obstacle i had in order to transfer to (blank)

 

I swear, I ccouldn't mathmetize myself out of a paper bag.....thank god my job entails only the most remdial knowledge of basic math.

 

And while we're at it, i need to calcuate a discount for a client. What's 10% of $6300?

$630

 

why?

because ten percent is one tenth

 

one tenth of 6300 is 630

how'd i figure?

 

because 630 X 10 = 6300

I used to be damn good at math. My parents forced me to be. I had tutors like crazy, insanely intimidating and painful methods of encouragement from my parents, and all that jazz. I was in an amazing math program at school (my teacher constantly created math contest winners - including myself).

 

But then I started smoking weed.

Math is fucking amazing. I used to be real good at it, but my abilities decayed fast once I started drinking a lot.

 

My little bro is a fucking genius. He's the kind of kid that can grab those crazy math problems in the newspaper next to the crossword puzzle and solve them in less than a minute. We often have battles and he nearly always crushes me. But then I remind him he shits bowling pins and I automatically win.

I don't get math at all. Or sciences. I was much more of a English and Social Studies guy.

 

But even I know what 10% of something is...

I'm good at math but I'm unable to succeed in high school math and science. Its not something you can follow when you're asleep in every other class.

Maths is so shit. I'm constantly required to work out 20% of triple digit numbers at work in front of customers. I usually say "We have a 20% discount today so that will be around, I dunno you work it out"

i hate math, but it's fairly simple. the higher u go, it's just some new concepts, and it all boils down to algebra. i went through calc 1, 2, 3, linear algebra and differential equations. going to school for electrical engineering sucks. fuck physics too.

one tenth of 6300 is 630

how'd i figure?

 

because 630 X 10 = 6300

Even an easier way.

 

 

$6300.00 <- Notice the decimal point.

 

If you want to find 10% of $6300.00, you just move the decimal point once to the left. So...

 

$6300.00 becomes $630.000, which is y'know, $630.00.

 

 

 

 

But if it's like, find 22% of $6300. Uh... let's see...

 

1. State the problem or whateverthefuck. $6300.00

2. Find 10% of that. (do that move the decimal point to the left once thing). You'll get $630.000 as stated above.

3. Uh... Then you multiply $630.000 by 2.2. (why? because 10 x 2.2 = 22%)

4. $630.00 x 2.2 = $1386.00 ($1,386)

5. So 22% of $6300 is $1386.

 

I think that's the answer. I'm pretty sure that it. ;)

 

 

And that's as good as I get as far as math goes. Hahaha.
