    • Just wait until you leave high school and start doing real math. The stuff we are given has easy work arounds because they are not difficult problems. Good luck using “your way” in any higher math course.

    • That’s because the teachers job is to teach you the technique. If you solve the problem a different way, then you haven’t practiced the technique they attempted to show you

    • Yo if you guys are in algebra just use nSolve in your calculator, what you do is press menu then 3 and then 1. Type your equation and change the variable to just one letter (I use x) then after you finish typing it out, put a comma and the letter you used in the equation and boom, its solved.

    • Hah yeah, not using the formula will work 1/10,000 times, so it’s still of concern. Regardless, those chances dwindle down even further when you get to higher math classes, so yes- it might as well be wrong because you’ll likely get it wrong next time. Critical/logical thinking.
