I told her, “mom, the day I become good at math, pigs will fly.” I think pigs just flew.
Which makes sense since our equation was only intended to be used to tell our computer how to convert from total weight to total number of dog toys—we weren’t actually looking for a specific answer to a specific problem.
Slow down and take a minute to think about your result.
I should say that plugging in values isn't always necessary.
For example, we don’t actually have numerical values to use in our problem.
The biggest mistake people make when solving problems is trying to solve them too soon.
The most important thing to do when faced with a problem like this is to stop working on it.
My integrated math textbook is full of really hard word problems and ik the app can’t do word problems, but easy as pie I can write down a number problem for those word problems and this app will save me hours that I could be spending on other homework and sleep.

Your computer can then use some as-yet-unknown equation to figure out exactly how many toys are hidden.
When that number goes above a certain limit, your computer can sound an alarm to let you know that it’s time to go fetch.
