Awesome lol. He’s, bay far, my favorite author

Ah okay! I shall definitely have to look into him! I’m reading Catching Fire right now, it’s sooo good! And then I want to read Mockingjay, but it’ll probably be around finals time by then…

** ****mook64** replied to your **photo**: **tyleroakley: Perfection.**

He is a fantastic author! For you, in particular, I’d recommend Will Grayson, Will Grayson and An Abundance of Katherines

Ooh those sound interesting! I’ll have to read them over summer break when I have time!

I know the feeling :/ Have you read any John Green?

No, I have not! I’ve never even heard of him.

I suck at writing, but reading has always been a passion of mine lol

Ah that’s cool! I wish I had more time to read. I really do like it, but I have so many other things to do :/

Math and I don’t exactly get along lol

Hahaha, unfortunately many people feel the same way. But I can’t do history or write a good essay, so it balances out.

** ****mook64** replied to your **post**: **mook64 replied to your post: mook64 replied to…**

Yeah, exactly hahahahaha I’m not sure what the name is, but it’s Advanced Algebra, I think

omgg bahah. But ooh that sounds like a fun class!!

I’m trying to help her with her homework, but I’m failing lol

hahaa so you were like “hey wait let me ask this guy on tumblr who is a total math nerd?” bahaha omg

What class is she taking?

** ****mook64** replied to your **post**: **I have a math question from my mom: ([x^2 - 9x + 8] / [x^2 + 6x - 16]) / ([x^2 + x - 72] / [4 - x^2]) = ?**

My mom is a community college student trying to complete her AA lol

Ah okay, I was just curious. That’s awesome!

Lol, from your mom? That’s kind of random, why does she have to solve this?

Anywho:

First, do same, change, flip to condense it into one fraction:

(x^2 -9x +8)(4-x^2) / (x^2+6x-16)(x^2+x-72).

Factor everything:

(x-8)(x-1)*(2+x)(2-x) / (x+8)(x-2)*(x+9)(x-8)

Now, cancel things on the top and bottom: The (x-8)s cancel out. (2-x) and (x-2) are -1s of each other. So instead of cancelling them and getting a 1, we get a -1 instead. So just tack on a negative sign in front.

So we get:

-(x-1)(x+2) / (x+9)(x+8), which simplifies to -(x^2 +x - 2)/(x^2+17x +72)

I happen to have the second controversial opinion that Mockingjay was the best of the series

Hmmmm… one of my friends said that too, but I’ve also heard that THG is the best one.

If it matters at all, The Hunger Games was my least favorite lol

I want to be your derivative so I can lie tangent to your curves ;)

Can I be your second derivative so I can investigate your concavities? ;)
