What on earth is Mrs. Parker doing to us in 5th grade GT Math?????????
Have fun and share some great ideas! Wh
try starting with lower numbers
i thought this was goin to be really easy at first
I would just try different combinations that get 2 in the ones place.
I'll try that
try using the method guess and check
I agree with ncd try using guess and check
I got it. Try making the ones digits add up to 12.
thanks for the help i'll try that
if you regroup it makes the problem easier.
think i got it thanks :)
That is a great idea and it really helped me find the answer.
are all of the As the same digit?
I also got it thanks for the help
try to use the skip property when making the ones digit add up to 12 ;)
Yes all of the a's are the same digit
yes all the As are the same digit
plz ignore my last question
i don't need the answer
thnks 4 replying hc
Thanks,cks that really helped
how is b+a sopposed to equal 2 when a+a =b?
Listing all of the possibilities helped me solve the problem. :)
ARL, thanks for the hint.
you should probaly use guess and check
bs, try regrouping. :)
are we using negatives?
can someone give me a hint ora clue
What I mean is try to make A+B=12 instead of 2.
Does that help, bs?
forget the last queston i figured it out
I used guess check and revise,JET. Also,this problem was easier than I thought.
JET, we are not using negatives.
Like I said before, try listing all of the possibilities.
Does that help, JET? :)
i thout this would be easy
You're welcome, bs. :)
ONB helps alot
a hint and a clue are the same thing JET.
if you do the problem on paper its easier
By the way JET, I forgot to leave out that I DID use guess and check, too.
Thanks for the compliment! :)
I am looking at this problem, and it looks really hard. What do you think the easiest strategy is to this?
i have an idea of what a=
i started out trying to make 12 with A and B
i have thx for all information
Congrats! You probably have out done your self for today. After all we do have like, half a month.
the ans i have the ans
I finally got it!...and regrouping really helped me:)
thanks for the tips.try guess and check
I finally got it! Some other comments helped me really well. The strategy I recomend is ARL A+b=12. I also just tried different combinations that equals to 12 :)
i thought it was hard at first but it was really easy.
vyw's way works but another way is to find out what combinations do not work like 6+6, 1+11, 2+10, and 0+12. also, dont forget to add the 1 to the a+a i forgot to add it so i had to start over. (i got the answer)
im pretty sure i got the answer.listing all the possibilities really worked for me. thanx OAB.your edvice really helped.
I did it! Try switching A and B around.
I figured out the problem. Has any one else?
here is a hint: A is more than 5 and B is less than 8.
WHAT??? HINT PLZ!!!!
look at the other comments there are tons of hints
I got it! The thing were it adds up to 12 in the ones place works.
I think I got it...
This is tricky-any one know where to start?????
I got it. A must be a larger # than B
B is Odd.
b is smaller than a
Are you sure JAMC?
I got it! It's easiest if you start with lower numbers. All the hints really helped!
hi! :) iv'e got a strategy for the problem. first, find out the B number by using guess and check and then if you get the right number for B, than you can find out A pretty easily!
try working with the hints,it will help you a lot:)
thanks for the tips. I think I got it now
try making the ones digits equal 12:)
If your stuck you should try using the guess and check method and start with low numbers.
can some one help me please! =}
This is very chalenging
i agree with PB. it was chalenging
I got it!!! When you think you have the correct answer , you should add up the #'s to see if it follows a rule!!!
check your awnser if you think you got it
i got the answer.it's >5 and <8 just like what TSL said.:)Good luck!!!!!!!
this is a monthly problem it shouldnt take 1 day. on the other hand can someone give me another hint im stuck
YAY! I finally got the answer. The hints were helpful.=)
ohhh thought i had it but i just realised i dont
use the guess and check method and start with low #s just like what KW did.
i need a hint what number is it lower than?
got the answer!!!
I've almost got it!
think of 2 and 12s
i ......got it
B is less than than A
guess and check makes it so easy
If you have spent over 20 minutes on this problem you are thinking to hard. Think of different strategys.
Just be careful that your hints aren't tooooo leading! I am so impressed with all the positive help and team work. I am so proud to be your teacher. l
Looks like I'm going to have to make these tougher!
I was just thinking too much. I started with 5.
dont forget about carrying and borrowing
like cks said always remember regrouping people.
I'd like to know who hasn't gotten the answer yet!
I HAVENT ,GOT ANY CLUES TO HELP ME
read all of the comments there is lots of clues
definaly look at onbs comments
This turned out to be Fun!!!! ;)
Any tips to help me i need help!!
Im trying to regroup but i dont know what numbers to start with, its impossible!!!!!!!!
@JET: Cool initials by the way. Don't give up! It isn't possible. One really good hint given already was come up with all of the combos that could fit in that first column. Although it was a BIG hint... did you try 12 in the ones column?
Hey JET, you need to try guess and check. try writing it down on paper.That helped me a lot-I hope you can figure it out!!
I tried guess and check, it helped me a lot:)
Don't forget to post your answer in class on the bulletin board. It is due September 30th :)
I think if you think about it and start making combos you can get the answer
When will we find out the answer??
I found the answer by listing all the possible numbers that end with the number 2. I also used the problem solving technique guess and check.
