Algebra is, quite simply, a game of “find the missing” number. What does X mean? What does Y mean? What number do you need to solve a problem?
Let me present three ways that you do algebra as an adult:
- A spouse you’re trying to meet
- A diet you’re trying to implement
- A financial strategy you’re learning about
You’re always looking for a missing number, for something to complete your life. You’re always searching…always looking. Always waiting for dessert, hoping for a cherry to top your cake.
You’re always doing algebra.
