Well, I feel bad. You see, I was in 7th grade math in 5th grade but when you were in 4th grade you were learning what I was learning!

#1601

By sixth grade youâll probably be doing 9th grade math, and learning it quicker than I am learning stuff right now

#1602

Hey, you got it right! Howâd you know that Iâd be doing 9th grade math in sixth grade? Oh and sorry if you thought you made me feel bad. I donât feel bad. I was just joking! Donât feel sad!

#1603

Youâd be advanced if youâre learning inequalities in fifth

Okey then thatâs good

#1604

What are inequalities and do I know them without knowing what theyâre called? Also, whatâs the golden rule of algebra? I ink I should know this stuff.

#1605

Inequalities are like

3(x+5) > 2x(5x-4)

And the golden rule of algebra is

`` The strategy for solving this equation is the repeated application of the           golden rule of algebra to collect like terms and isolate the quantity x on one     side of the equation.``

#1606

Oh. Yeah I remember learning that.

#1607

Ok

#1610

Itâs just to talk about math, not brag.

Anyway, since this is revived, anyone have any questions? Iâm up to try some.

#1611

What about the numberphile topic, though?

#1612

I mean, this is the original math topic. Itâs cool that there is a new one, but that doesnât mean that we canât use this, because it was revived anyway.

#1613

Okey thenâŚ

#1614

Hey! I was just about to post in this topic again! I just did some pretty cool math stuff.

Whatâs everybody doing/learning these days in math?

#1615

Can you explain how -3 to the power of 2 is different from (-3) to the power of 2

#1616

Do you know about order of operations?

#1617

(-3)^2is 9, because the ^2 is on the -3.

-3^2 is -9, because the ^2 is on the 3, and not the -.

#1618

I think you meant to put the parentheses just around the -3 in the first line, surrounding the whole thing in parentheses doesnât do anything xD

#1619

Thatâs what I meant to do, yes.

#1620

Iâm doing some algebra. Iâm waiting for my dad to help me with calculus, though.

#1621

Thatâs awesome! Calculus is sooo fun, and the notation is super satisfying. Itâs also not at all as hard as people think.
