 Question 262592: Hi, I am trying to help my nieces with their homework, but I don't have much information to go by and it has been awhile since I played with equations. Anyhow, maybe one of you know more what about what they are looking for or at least give me a clue. I think they are trying to find the equation that by replacing the value IN, the result should match the OUT. e.g. X + Y = Z (Where X=IN, & Z=OUT) makes sense? sorry if it doesn't. I know is hard to pick from very little information. :) IN OUT 2 -1 3 +1 10 +15 15 +25 5 +7 Thanks a lot Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9144)
