### How to answer math problems with no sweat

1. 1. How to Answer Math Problems With NoSweat
2. 2. What is the hardest math problemto solve? It might not seem obviousbut it often overlooked. Thehard math problems to solve is theone you cant solve because thesolution hasnt presented itself yet.In the vast world of mathematics,numbers are the most importantcharacters. We encounter a lot ofequations and formulas.
3. 3. There are concepts that are verydifficult and students have to struggle tounderstand them. Math is one of thetoughest subjects in school and itconsists of various topics that need fullattention and dedication. Solving mathproblems for example is very tediousbut if you know how to solve it step bystep, you would find it easier. There canbe solve hard math problems if youknow the strategies and techniques towork out these challenging problems inmath.
4. 4. Read the ProblemIt is essential to read the before first beforeanything else especially in answering wordproblems. You must select the information that isnecessary for you. Try to break down the problemin reading it again and again. Analyze it and tryto break them into pieces to get the main idea.Remember that if you are not sure with what youneed to take out, break them sentence by sentenceif needed. Read it out loud slowly. Reading theinstructions carefully and more than once is alsoessential since it is a tool in finding solution to theproblem.
5. 5. Take Time to WriteIt is difficult to solve the problem mentally. So, indoing some addition problems, a student have totake the numbers they need to add and write themon paper. In older students who are solving morecomplicated problems, it is important that theytranslate word into numbers. It is much easier tosolve the problem if you translate them since youcan easily analyze it in math language. You canthink of what formula you will use if it is in mathequation form already.
6. 6. Apply the FormulasIt is critical that you are familiar with mathformulas to be able to apply in solving mathproblems especially when you are dealing withword problems. Recall the formulas that areapplicable in the problem. If there are noformulas, try to think of similar example of theproblem and find out the steps in using to solvethe problem or equation. Many math problemsare similar to solve but with different variables.
7. 7. One Step at a TimePerform the operation one by one. No need tohurry as long as your answer is right. Make yourformula and example problem a guide and finisheach step until you reach the solution. Most erroronly occur in one step and that cause a wrongnumber to pass through to the end; this commonlyhappens with long and complex problems. If youget stuck, go back to the previous process untilyou find an answer that you feel is right.
8. 8. Check Your AnswersCheck your work before jumping to anotherequation. It is vital that you check your formulasand solutions since one mistake makes the restwrong. In math, it is necessary that you are verycareful in solving. In doing home work, find ananswer key if possible. Compare your solutionwith your classmates works or let your othersiblings review your work.
9. 9. Math problems are inevitable. Even in real lifesituations, we encounter most of them. They varydepending on what type of math equation orproblem you are doing. Techniques are importantbecause they help students in finding solutions tothe math problems. But of course you need a lot ofpatience and dedication in order to solve them.Like in real life, there are many unknowns butknowing how to deal with those variables is whatthe most successful people in the world do.
