Damnit, both my wife and I got it wrong too.



Oh well, after looking at it, I definitely understand how they got it now.

"A bat and ball cost a dollar and ten cents. The bat costs a dollar more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?"




you can't a.ssume that everything has a formula just from the way its worded. its dumb becuz theres too many possibilities

there's only one exact possibilty.. what are you talkin about?

I agreed with you on them using this as an example of cognitive bias by giving a pretty vague word problem. But if the ball coast any more or less than 5 cents, the bat would never cost a exactly a dollar more than the ball and equal $1.10
it says the bat costs a dollar more than the ball



IN MATH U MUST AT LEAST SAY, AND MOST OF YOU ARE DOING BASIC ALGEBRA, U MUST AT LEAST SAY AT MOST OR AT LEAST. costs a dollar more is NOT MATHMATICAL TERMINOLOGY




THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS ARTICLE IS PROBABLY A MATHEMATICAL fu*kING IDIOT WHO DOESN'T UNDERSTAND sh*t AND DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS FOR SIMPLETONS.


trust me ive taught this sh*t SAT books and the sat's should be banned.

I got it wrong the first time too, but I was wary it was a trick question and switched my initial thought

I understand the initial thought most people have but it really should not be that hard to arrive at the final answer.

Some n*ggas really strechin their minds in here though

Read it carefully because I knew there was something fishy. Figured 10 cents couldn't be right because that would mean that together the ball and the bat together (1.10+.10)would cost $1.20.

Then figured
If bat + ball = $1.10
$1.10 - $1 = .10

.10 divided by 2 = .05

.05 + $1.05 = $1.10

Haven't had a math class in 11 years so can't remember how to right this down as a formula like some you ch'nerds.

I can also see you haven't taken an English class.
