So I did the only thing that I know how to do, I set up a little equation like this:
3 = x
...and I solved for 'x' to find out that I should enter 9.375 into the computer. Pretty slick, huh?
I thought about my eighth grade algebra teacher, who was smoking hot, and who probably would have been proud that I had used some of the stuff she taught me in my regular life. I did not think about my 12th grade calculus teacher who could write simultaneously with both hands in two different directions (forward and backward) on the chalkboard AT THE SAME TIME because I don't think I have ever used calculus in real life before. But I digress. I am sure that all my math teachers and my friends who are math teachers (I am looking in your direction here G-Funk) would be proud that I was able to use advanced math - although simple advanced math - to help get me through life. I know I was pretty proud of myself.
