1. Let's learn Math with Jigsaw!

In that case is just run away.

4. 15.

5. Now that I think of this again.
This is a troll

6. MPGH SO STUPID!!! NO 15!!!

15/2 = 7.50

DOES 10 + 7.50 = 15?

7. Its either \$20 or no answer, depending on what price you were trying to halve.

Oh shit...
Ok, I stop trolling now.

Man, heartview, next time stay away from my threads. This thread had potential to turn into a major flame war and now you ruined it.

9. "If something costs ten dollars plus half the price, how much does the item cost?"

that's the key right there
first half of sentence: something costs \$10 plus half the price
second half of sentence: how much does the item costs
you didn't say, How much WILL the item cost, How much does the item cost THEN, etc; etc; etc;

i haven't taken math in a few months, my last class was Algebra 2 back in December.
Can you re-explain this? I only understood the literary part of it and i'm stuck with the math part i feel so rusty.

English = my strong spot
Math = my shithole

10. 10.5 is the Answer .

Don't concentrate on time. Time isn't a variable here.

alright, explain the math part then
Being on MPGH = waste of time
so why not make it productive

13. Whatever scientist.

Well, most people make the mistake of thinking \$10 is the item price.

The item costs \$10 + .5x
Since x is also the price of the item, 10 + .5x must equal x.

So, 2(10 + .5x) = x(2)

20 + x = 2x
x = 20
