Rhetorical Property
Posted: Dec 12, 2004 11:17 AM

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 semi-intergral
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.

behind the addition sign and add the word "or" between each variable.

Get the reciprocal of each number, deleting the variable.

What did I tell you guys, it's a synch!!!!!
