More Math dilemma and rising from it

Image
AMA Cebu students solvingContrary to what most people think of me, I actually don’t like Math as much as I wanted it to. Numbers cause me great misery deep inside and it causes unexplainable head spins even at a young age. What I was deprived of was the fact that I didn’t have any math homework help as accessible as I sought for since internet and the new media was not yet fully developed or widespread then. I began to be resourceful and made the most of my notes from school and textbooks to comprehend such technical topics. As education becomes a necessity in this world, it is best you invest nothing but the best for your child because you can never learn how to do lessons like factoring polynomials in just a snap. When I stepped into college four years ago, I already had the basic fundamental to understand advanced mathematical topics as the curriculum in grade school was designed to pave the way for tertiary subjects. One such topic that came easy after going through the younger y…

The intricacies of the financial crisis are not well understood by all.

Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Berlin. In order to increase sales, she decides to allow her loyal customers - most of whom are unemployed alcoholics - to drink now but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger.
Word gets around and as a result increasing numbers of customers flood into Heidi’s bar.
Taking advantage of her customers’ freedom from immediate payment limits, Heidi increases her prices for wine and beer, the most-consumed beverages. Her sales volume increases massively.

He sees no reason to worry since he has the debts of the alcoholics as guarantee.
At the bank’s corporate headquarters, expert bankers transform these customer assets into bonds.
These bonds are then traded on markets worldwide. No one really un…

Creation versus Evolution. An endless debate but I’m 50-50 basing on views that I’ve accumulated through the years but greatly leaning towards creation because I believe stronger in my faith than believing my ancestors were hanging from the trees.

Go Green. I love it when people are so active in saving the environment. We’ve never been of great help to Earth than now where companies and individuals like you and me put are acts together in an ambitious attempt to regain the beauty of living in the planet way back when.

Survey Calls. They are legal and they benefit you either it improves the products and services that you use or they are used by politicians to gather enough pulse from the public which may affect you or your family. But most importantly it shows that the companies or the government you have a connection with, makes an effort to let you know they care and that whatever you say matters. Would it hurt to be not a jerk once in awhile?

Smith, Robinson, and Jones brain teaser

For our English class, our teacher made us answer this test for 30 minutes and man did it take a toll on all of our educationally stagnant AMA brains. Here’s the problem:On a train, Smith, Robinson, and Jones are the fireman, brakeman, and the engineer, but NOT respectively. Also aboard the train are three businessmen who have the same names: a Mr. Smith, a Mr. Robinson, and a Mr. Jones. Using the clues below, can you determine the identity of the Engineer? 1. Mr. Robinson lives in Detroit.
2. The brakeman lives exactly halfway between Chicago and Detroit
3. Mr. Jones earns exactly $20,000 per year.
4. The brakeman's nearest neighbor, one of the passengers, earns exactly three times as much as the brakeman.
5. Smith beats the fireman in billiards.
6. The passenger whose name is the same as the brakeman's lives in Chicago. Thankfully, after thorough discussion with my classmates and a good friend’s good judgement (Thanks Nido) I was able to answer that it was Smith. Bu…
