-10x2 + 810 = 0

wait... is the 'x' times or 10x + 2 + 810? or 10x times 2 +810?

Oh, sorry...I want and found another question. Okay, so...Hmm...okay how about...Uh...Quadratic Equation? Do you guys do something like that? If I remember correctly, it goes something like this:
-10x2 + 810 = 0

that was basic, bro. I was only showing you what it looked like over. But...seriously? You saw an Equation like that in 5/6 grade. O_O Wow...Just...Wow. You were doing Alegbra in that grade?! *le gasp* I can assure you, I didn't. Oh, shall I show you another one? Oh, Algebra 1 is usually presented to you when you reach 9th...And that's pretty much all I know since I never gotten passed that. My older brother passed that class and took Geometry afterward and finally Algebra 2.

WTF. Its too easy. I seen that when I was like 5/6th grade (primary 5/6). The answer is x=13 right??

The Grubby Pup
oh, I almost for your question. Hm...Let me see if I can remember one...Aha, how about dis: Basic Equations? 12= 1x + 1 (I basically copied this outta my text book)

Like I say, the education system from where I come from and from where you come from is different, I have no idea what's Algebra 1. Just give me an example of an question and if I can do it, I should be able to help you.

Thanks. And yeah, I’ll remember the next time a big ass test comes up. Which always seems to come before a big holiday around; thanksgiving, so it’ll might be sooner than later. LOL And believe me bro, your grades are better. When I said I was failing miserably, true me…I wasn’t overstatin‘…I was dead-ass serious. My grades are horrible. Worst part is, I’m still doing Algebra 1, since I‘m in 11th I should at least be on the 2nd level…I just don‘t get it. *sighs* And you don’t wanna know my grade point average in that class…I’m ashamed. :’(

Enjoy your winter break! And sure, drop me some questions on Algebra, I got 60/100 on Maths, 50% of the questions are all algebra, got every single correct hehe. Fortunately logarithms is at another subject called Additional Mathematics, which I got 20/80, an achievement indeed, considering that I got 5/100 for my first exam (i have 2 exams every year and many tests that can count onto the overall percentage/average).

And I just want to ask, whats a typical Maths/Algebra question in the States, it might vary in format from mine. Or simply too difficult for me.

Oh, I figured that much already. Just thought I give a slice of my life. (Rhymes) But yeah, I did here that IT IS harder overseas and stuff. Not to sound stereotypical, but you Asians are known for your…brain-straining knowledge. >_<

But real talk, you’re good with algebra maybe you can help me nowadays. LOL And yeah, I’ve seen that logarithms stuff before…Let’s just say I stood there with my mouth agape, drool slowly coming down my mouth. >.< And yeah, same here…My second term starts after winter break…which happens to be in January.

We don't follow what credit system that you're talking about. Education is very strict here though. I am quite okay with algebra, but if you're talking about logarithms, I suck. And in here, a new semester starts in January, so I am secondary 4 next year.

Mmm, secondary 4? Well, if you’re 15 and if you were living in America then most likely you’ll be in the 10th, so yeah. Anyways, you need a certain average to past a grade? Mm…Well, I know where I from you a certain amount of credit to get promoted. Every class you pass gives you a credit. I can’t remember how you need exactly. But each semester we get 4 classes. There’s 2 semester in all for each year you attend school. Right now, I’m taking Algebra; which I’m failing…horribly, so most like I won’t get any credits for that. Remedial Algebra, Health/Gym and finally Literature/Comprehension or Lit/Comp for short, that‘s what everybody else call it. And don’t worry, dude…It like that where I live too. Immigrants coming into the country and taking most da jobs. Some stuff is just outta your control and I suppose that might need more anyways. They are in a new place and I doubt have way to support their families and whatnot. :p

I barely made it through to Secondary 4 (10th grade I guess), I had an average of 49.0 of all my subjects, the school/government says that if a student had an average of 49.9 and below, they will be retained in that year. Fortunately, there's another rule where if a student fails his or her overall average, they will have to pass 3 subjects, where as I passed 5. And its a competitive society in my country, foreigners coming from up, down, left, right, the government giving them easy citizenship, its hard to find a job in the future with low qualifications.
