 THE POWER OF A SINGLE THINKING PROCESS   "It Has An Insistent Quality About It" Forget every formula you've ever been taught.  Using the same thinking process, imagine being able not only to answer the following questions correctly, but also with 100% confidence!

 Problem Question (and answer) Problem 1 Problem 2 Problem 3 The odds of me winning are 7:11. What is the probability I will win? Problem 4 Find the sum of the internal angles of this polygon: Problem 5 How many combinations can be made with these letters: a, b, c, d, e, f Problem 6 Find the slope of a line perpendicular to: Problem 7 Find the midpoint of (4,1) and (2,7) Problem 8 Problem 9 Find this trapezoid's area: Problem 10 Problem 11 How many numbers are in the sequence 14, 15, 16, .... 92. 93. 94 Problem 12 A polyhedron has 20 faces and 12 vertices. How many edges does it have? Problem 13 Problem 14 How many lines are in this circle of 16 points? Problem 15 What is 6,240,000,000,000,000,000 in words? Problem 16 Find the circumference: Problem 17 Put this in scientific notation: Problem 18 Problem 19 Find the area of this triangle: Problem 20 I make \$200 and get a 200% increase. How much do I make now? Problem 21 Problem 22 The red slice is what portion of the whole pizza? Problem 23 Problem 24 Problem 25 Problem 26 by prime factorization Problem 27 How many points of intersection are there in this design? Problem 28 Problem 29 What is the approximate latitude and longitude of Kansas City? Problem 30 by prime factorization Problem 31 Problem 32 30% of what is 120? Problem 33 I drive 40mph for 80 miles and 80mph for 40 miles.  What was my average speed? Problem 34 Problem 35 Problem 36 Problem 37 What is the volume of a cylinder with radius 5" and height 10"? Problem 38 In "The Lucas Tower" (Tower of Hanoi), what is the minimum number of moves it takes to complete the game below? Problem 39 If I start at �Start�, and can only move down hitting one point at each level, then how many ways can I finish at �Finish�? Problem 40 A surveyor wanting to cross the river has recorded the following data.  How wide is the river? Problem 41 How many cups are there in 6 quarts? Problem 42 Problem 43 Problem 44 A decreasing number is a number where each digit is less than the prior digit.  How many decreasing numbers are there less than 1000? Problem 45 Problem 46 What is the probability of winning the PowerBall? Problem 47 Problem 48 Problem 49 Find the distance between (4,1) and (2,7). Problem 50 is an example of what property? Problem 51 Problem 52 Suppose the NCAA goes to a 128-game basketball tournament, single elimination.  How many games are played? Problem 53 Test scores are 55, 60, 65, 75, 90, and 92. What percentile is the 90 score? Problem 54 Problem 55 Problem 56 I flip four coins.  What is the probability I will get two heads? Problem 57 The general format of a Kansas license plate is: letter letter letter - number number number How many different Kansas license plates can there be? Problem 58 If I throw 1000 darts at this target, randomly, how many can I expect to miss the circle?  (Assuming the darts land somewhere on the square). Problem 59 Problem 60 Suppose I have two prime numbers x and y.  Multiplied together, the product can't be prime, because it's divisible by both x and y.  But what if I take (xy) + 1.  Is this prime?

THESE FORMULAS ARE ALL WRONG

Or maybe they're right.  Whatever the case, they're all hurtful, because I can't understand anything going on!
