The first

For many years I have heard people say, "I don't understand how Algebra relates to real life". I've tried unsuccessfully to show people how maths relates to every one, everyday. The intention is to use situations that could be common iun everyday life and show how maths relates to decisions that people make etc. The questions are not trick questions, just questions that make you use your brain a little. I will try and give you some tips to help you along, formulas, conversions etc. Questions will be multileveled as well, involving steps that the answer to one may feed into the next. The main thing is you have a go. My solutions will involve a full explaination on how each answer was achieved. So please stay tuned. If these questions are too easy please feel free to submit your own question (along with solutions) to me by email and you can guest blog for me (no payments until i start getting paid). Oh by the way I am human and I may make mistakes myself. My Maths training was many years ago as well.
