Rhetorical Property
Posted:

Hey guys! Just returned from the math convention in St. Louis by Dr. Rita Bussing. She's pretty much a GENIUS! Anyway, I learned a new math trick that could help you and any student struggling with the basic skills of math. I was introduced to rhetorical property by Dr. Bussing. It goes like this: Objective: To delete the double negatives of semiintergral equation.
First, look at your variables in the equation and solve for them. {Ex. 2x²(4aa + Pi) ÷ (x + 7)}
Next, subtract every nuber by zero.
Now, your problem must be simplified. Move all of your variables behind the addition sign and add the word "or" between each variable.
Get the reciprocal of each number, deleting the variable.
Your answer could be 1/3 or 45/9
What did I tell you guys, it's a synch!!!!!
