Algebrafied Version of the Question

Algebraying Mathematics

Write the existing math problem that you wish to change, and then write the new “algebrafied” version of the question

-----------------------------------------------
Algebraying mathematics is about finding a general solution to a family of related problems, rather than solving one isolated problem.

Algebraying mathematics is about finding a general pattern for a type of problem.

For example, suppose you had an arithmetic problem with a missing number.

8 + ? = 15

Now, there are an entire class of related problems:

? + 8 = 15

1 + ? = 10

15 + ? = 16

. . . and so on

There are thousands of problems which are in this family group:

a known number + an unknown number = a known total

Regardless of the problem within this group, the solution is always the same:

unknown number = known total - known number.

It does not matter what the known total and known number are, the solution is always a subtraction problem - every time.

Finding a general solution (subtraction) for this type of problem is what algrbraying is all about.
