    Re: What Does Homework Do?

    P.S. I skipped steps and separated things out. The original equation would be 8/12 = X/21 (which is basic algebra). Then it becomes 21*(8/12) (which is multiplying fractions).

    Since I know how to multiply fractions, I can take the 8 out momentarily and look at 21/12 = 1 and 9/12 = 1 and 3/4. Then I multiply that by 8 so I know I have 8 + 8*(3/4) = 8 + 6 = 14.

    If I couldn't graduate without taking pre-calculus, I would never have gone to a university or had aspirations for graduate school.

    Remember that, and if you ever hear someone disparage the intelligence of carpenters and other blue-collar tradesmen, let them know that it's not all mindless labor.

    Not that anyone here has said that, but I've encountered that stereotype so often in my life that I know it's real.

    I gotta admit, a couple of those (like painting and tile) are pretty much just mindless labor.

    No, it's tough stuff, at least to me.

    Being severely deficient in one area gives me enough respect for those who can do it, and at the end of the day, be able to say "easy as pie".
