GLP and math questions on a saturday night!
A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

I know a lot of you know the answer.

I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

No he says the total cost of them together is 1.10. He said that the bat costs a dollar more than the ball.
That leaves 10 cents because that ten cents was included in the total.
The total sum of 1.00 + .10 = 1.10
Take away the cost of the bat which is 1.00, you're left with .10.

Unable do basic word problems, huh? try again. the difference between a dollar and 10 cents is not a dollar... the difference between 1.05 and .05 is one dollar.. therefore the ball is 5 cents..

he asked for the difference of bat and ball.. therefore one dollar minus ten cents = 90 cents. did he ask for 90 cents? no he asked for a dollar. One dollar and five cents minus 5 cents = one dollar.

one last time... The bat cost $1 more than the ball. does the bat costing a dollar and the ball costing 10 cents give you a difference of a dollar. no.

if you still dont get it look up in the thread. see how you are the only one who thinks the ball cost 10 cents? yeah, still having problems? highlight the question and put it in google.

the ball cost 5 cents and the bat cost 1.05.
I wonder why people think Americans are stupid?

Re: GLP and math questions on a saturday night!
This is an example of bullshit obfuscation that must mean you're in the government writing tax law right OP?

America used to be the place where a^2+b^2=c^2 was used to put 500 lb shot onto an invading enemy laying siege to one of our forts. Back then you had to do a math problem in your head while rifle bullets were whizzing by.

Nowadays America really is the place where there are genius discrete mathematicians and dudes who can't read taco bell menus. There aren't any craftsmen anymore who had geometry. You either code in like 4 different languages or you're a complete dumbass.
