1. ## Better maths.

Recently i have come up with two 'master maths formulas.'

The first is a ratio to find the [x] of anything. basically, you count up how many symbols are on the right hand side of the equals, or, latter equation, and divide the number of symbols by the number of [symbols + x], or the other way around. you take the ratio that is greater, what is left, and multiply it by the [symbols total.] i am a bit tired as i write this.

Or, the other one, will be where we test the students with diagrams that they can work out easily, as, any application of maths is practical in the end, well, most are that we use as engineers and stuff, yes?

Now, i want to make a new way to do maths, but don't know where it will end. if we were to observe all the known values of the equation, we could simply add them all up, and subtract the sum of the symbols that we do not have a value for. how does that sound? let's check it out!

[4x] + [6x] - 5 / [2x] = this would be where we test it, yes? this would be where we say that there are 2.5 known numbers, and, 3 unknown numbers, or, [x]'s. this would mean that the answer is 0.5, yes? let's work it out properly?

This would be [10x] - 5 / [2x]... i feel close! either we swap the negative numbers for positive ones, or, something!

Can someone with engineering level maths help me out?

2. To find an area, you simply put a 'cross section' symbol inside the 'squared area,' then take half the length by half the height, and multiply them together.

3. Where did you get get your vast knowledge of maths?

I found it exciting, and, thought i would benefit - there are free textbooks and exams out there.

Wow Brett this reminds of a lecturer in Business Economics in the 70s saying he was looking for a better way for bookkeeping based on linear programming. Still the double entry system rules.

Do you believe you can find a new way with maths?

I believe that what i have postulated works, so far. i am hoping to reinvent the whole system so it is much easier for kids to do technical things - it will save a lot of spankings too!

8. I'm sure you will get it right, I mean hell, what did those Greek mathematicians know anyway.

Love the confidence my maths skills are dead haven't practiced in years. Have you had feedback from a lecturer?

Yes, in chat rooms. they don't always work, some i abandon, but usually i get there eventually. i 'specialize' in simplifying formulas so kids can learn them and see if they understand, or, give them time to understand, before they study their degrees.
