This is the third offering on Algebra problem simplification, presenting more novel faces of Algebra problems. But then it is always possible to solve such problems in a few steps using basic and rich algebra concepts along with powerful problem solving strategies and techniques...

How to solve difficult Algebra problems in a few simple steps 2

thumb_How to solve algebra problems in a few simple steps 2

Algebra is a discipline of symbol manipulation and usual problems involve only a few basic concepts. But to solve relatively more complex problems in a few simple steps we need to build our rich concept set specific to Algebra as well as use powerful general problem solving strategies and techniques. This is the second offering on Algebra problem simplification...

Algebra is a discipline of symbolic expression manipulation and usual problems involve only a few basic concepts. Apparently Algebra problems should not be difficult to solve, but it is not always so. When we face such exceptions of problems that are seemingly difficult, problem solving strategies and techniques may still enable solution in a few simple steps...

How to solve Time and Distance problems in a few simple steps 1

thumb_How to solve time and distance problems in a few simple steps 1

Time and distance problems are taught in middle schools and also form an important component in competitive tests. In any case, our endeavor is to solve such problems elegantly in a few simple steps in contrast to generally complex and time consuming conventional approach to solving such problems...

How to solve more Time and Work problems in simpler steps, type 2

thumb_How to solve time work problems in simpler steps type2

In a large number of math problems involving Time & Work, it is stated that certain number of men take certain number of days to complete the work. These problems are usually solved in conventional methods by using per day work rate of 1 man. Instead, the number of days and number of men can be combined into a single powerful measure of work amount, simplifying the process greatly...
