Hello! I'm a tutor who is new to WyzAnt, but who has helped young people of various ages with their math
and social studies
homework over the years. I'm looking forward to helping a lot more people to maximize their potential.
A lot of students hear about their potential. I understand this because I grew up being told about mine, and how I needed to work to maximize it. It took me a long time to figure out how, but by the time I finished my master's at New York University, I was making the deans list and receiving academic honors. Along the way, I took the SAT
, and scored in the upper 90s in terms of percentile in the SAT math
, SAT verbal
, GRE writing
, GRE reading
and GRE math
. (I took the SAT prior to the writing being added.)
My degrees are in economics
and political science
, and in international affairs at the masters level. I have an interest in history
, and did well at social studies throughout my K-12 education. In school I got an A in math classes, in particular pre-algebra
, algebra and geometry
, and competed in math competitions. Finally, I'm also able to tutor aspiring drummers (on drum sets), as I played drums
in school bands and, starting in high school, played drums in local bands before I moved to New York.
I am not going to treat students like they're kids. If you're looking for a strict, hierarchical type, I'm not it. I treat people like they're people, and try and help them understand things. I'm professional, even-keeled, and friendly. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with people in the future, and hope to hear from you soon.

Generally speaking, to find a lowest common denominator the first step you would take is to determine if one denominator can be evenly divided into the other. In this case, you'd be looking at the 8 and the 4. Since you can divide 4 into 8 evenly, it's
the larger of the two - the lowest common...
Hi Zara! So this can be made into a series of algebra equations and solved from there - it's probably the easiest way to do it. If you define B as the number of Blueberries, R as the number of Raspberries, G as the number of Grapes and C as the number
of Cherries, you can make the following equations:
(I'm reading this as a=(3c)/(2-c), but if it's a=3(c/2)-c then that would be different. In other words, I am reading this as the 3c is the whole of the numerator and the 2-c is the whole of the denominator, so please consider this a response for that scenario.
See at the bottom for solving it...
