Luv your hubs. Comical and informative at the same time. If i am equal to Callum then i am in good company (in math that is) - he beats me otherwise.

Hi alian346. I am going to try answering these math questions. I hope I have done well.

1. 3/4 (0.75)

2. x=3 and x=1

3. 17 ?

4. 11

5. 210 pounds

6. Not able to determine

Ah okay! I was kind of confused on Q3. I realized that there were no cows, that's why I said that I was not able to determine it. Thanks! :)

Hey, I don't mind :). I like tests and brain games.
