The answers that he refuses to answer are #1 “322”, #2 “48”, #3 “c”, #4 “12”. The last one the answer was already given.

And the “answer” to this latest example probably needs an “old fashion” answer so he will do the assigned tasks.

Put him on a couple trains traveling between Detroit and Chicago…The one from Detroit is going 70 mph, the other is going 90 mph……How much sooner will the faster one alive? That should shut ’im up

People. It’s still morning. Math? My brain is going to explode.

@Alexikakos Most mathematicians consider a square to be a rhombus, this being the more inclusive definition.

Can be solved by use of the Commutative property:a*b=b*aNo calculations are required

wish more kids were interested with math, instead of shiny vampires and bdsm shades of gray.

@Strod – no, c) is not a parallelogram. The left and right hand sides are not parallel, so it is not a rhombus.

When I studied maths a rhombus was always a quadrilateral with four equal sides – never any mention of any restriction on the angles. This is the first time I’ve ever seen that definition. In fact one of the definitions of a square was a rhombus with four right angles. The other was a rectangle with equal sides, so a square is both.
