Mistake

Nicol mistake when calculate in school. Instead of add number 20 subtract it.

What is the difference between the result and the right result?

Result

x =  -40

Solution:

a=n+20 b=n20  x=ba=(n20)(n+20) x=220=40a = n + 20 \ \\ b = n- 20 \ \\ \ \\ x = b-a = (n - 20) - (n + 20) \ \\ x= -2\cdot 20 = -40



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
