Hooray for basic algebra

Some math for the rusty:

(a+b)/c = a/c + b/c=(1/c)(a + b), in case it’s slipped your mind and don’t remember what a first step could be in turning (yt+1 – yt)/yt into ln(yt+1)-ln(yt) as an approximation…also (x^n)(y^n)=(xy)^n will come in handy for that next problem…yay for basic math!

I’ve found that a lot of more advanced math relies on tons of transformation of expressions based on basic algebra/algebra II/pre-calculus concepts…very important to learn if you want to learn more advanced math

  1. It’s useful, but still won’t help me figure out what to do when buns come in packs of 8 and hot dogs come in packs of 10…..
