this is elementary math...

the numbers are 13 and 9

13 + 9 = 22

13 - 9 = 4

the numbers are 13 and 9

13 + 9 = 22

13 - 9 = 4

She said help her solve it. Not solve it for her.

You come off as the kind who lets a friend copy work and thinks nothing of it. Quit acting superior.

You're not helping, you're helping them get by without taking anything. Even something as small as Math homework makes a difference.

"Help me solve the problem" is not "Give me the answer." I'd think someone who can do simple math would be able to figure that out.

2x = 18

9 = x

Your sister's gonna be in trouble when Algeabra and Geometry rolls around.

Our teacher's explination of proofs was, 'if x = 8 + 9 and x = 2x + 13, like eight different things can happen. Just take a stab at it, you might even get it right.'

I hate that class so much >_>

You fail...hard.

You have their sum, and you know there is two numbers. Their difference is four, so subtract four from 22. Divide that number by two, and you get two numbers, each are the same number, correct? You divide by two because there is two numbers. Now, add four to one of the numbers, and check your work.
