Ahhh...

I haven't had a math class in 19 years. I can't believe I still remember how to do this stuff. Cool.

Idiot is relative... I've seen people (including myself) ask simple calculus or number theory problems on this board.

360=18/200x

360/(18/200)=x

4000=x

Let's make some substitutions to make it clearer:

a=360
b=x
c=200
d=18
e=b/c
f=e
g=a/e
h=a/f

That gives us:
h=df/e
a/f=df/e
a/e=de/e
a/(b/c)=d
a(c/b)=d
ac/b=d
ac=db
ac/d=b
ac/dc=b/c

this isn't simple calculus, this is basic, basic, BASIC algebra.

maybe i'm being harsh, but the mathematical capacity of some people in this country is just... shocking.

You deserve to fail. The reason why you can't understand the problem and solve it is probably because someone told you the answer to what 2+2 is.

why wouldnt you ask your teacher for help?

how old are you?
what kind of math are you taking?
have you done your homework?
