This lesson is annoying me... The quotient of a number and 2 is the same as the difference of the number doubled and 3. What is the number? 2 -2 -4 4

First of all, do you know what a quotient is?

Yea... Im dyslexic so its easier and less embarising for me to ask people ill never meet like you for help :3

okay, thats fine.

now what i dont get in the question is, is that do you want to quotient of a number and 2, so for example if the number is 10, and 10 divided by 2 is 5?

The quotient of a number and 2 is the same as the difference of the number doubled and 3. What is the number? 2 -2 -4 4 Im guessing follow order of ops?

no, never mind...

The answer is 2

Because 2 divided by 2 is 1.

And 2 doubled is 4.

And the difference between 3 and 4 is 1!

You gave me a medal, so I guess that means you understand! :)

Yea...Medals are for helpfullness. It means you either got it right or you explained it really well...I dont get as many medals i should have but i make sure to give them when i remember :3

Great, thanks!
