Solve for the Unknown Log Value Worksheets
How to Solve Equations for the Unknown  When solving algebra, the primary purpose is to solve equations to find the value of the unknowns. When a variable is included in mathematics, it can scare the kids, but it is not something to be scared of because solving equations with unknowns is simple. The most basic one is a linear equation. What you have to do is isolate the variable to one side of the equation. You can do this adding or subtracting and then dividing a certain number into both sides. It is a straightforward way to solve linear equations for the unknown. When it comes to quadratic equations, there are different ways to solve for the unknown. Completing the square method, breaking the middle term, and the quadratic formula. For polynomials with a higher power, you can use remainder factortheorems and other methodologies to solve for the unknown.

Mathematicians and Engineers
A Mathematician was put in a room. The room contains a table and three metal spheres about the size of a softball. He was told to do whatever he wants with the balls and the table in one hour. After an hour, the balls are arranges in a triangle at the center of the table. The same test is given to a Physicist. After an hour, the balls are stacked one on top of the other in the center of the table. Finally, an Engineer was tested. After an hour, one of the balls is broken, one is missing, and he's carrying the third out in his lunchbox.
