When the numbers just don't add up... Following in the footsteps of the successful The Humongous Books of Calculus Problems, bestselling author Michael Kelley has taken a typical algebra workbook, and made notes in the margins, adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions. Students will learn how to interpret and solve 1000 problems as they are typically presented in algebra courses-and become prepared to solve those problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams. Annotations throughout the text clarify each problem and fill in missing steps needed to reach the solution, making this book like no other algebra workbook on the market.In Problem 12.2, those numbers happened to be prime, but they dona#39;t have to be in the first step. In fact, they usually wona#39;tbe. Youa#39;ll just factor the ones that arena#39; tuntil theya#39;re all prime. 4 is notprime because you can divide itby2:4Am2=2.
