    Solved it. x=-7 suckers.

    You`ve made the mistake of reading the minus sign as an equals sign, since that`s the only way you`d have enough of a question to attempt an answer.

    But if that were the question, then yes, x = -7 would be the right answer.

    No, x = -7 makes it so you have 3/(-7+7) = 3/0, which is undefined. Not only that, but I dont think the whole problem is showing, because this equation doesnt equal anything, so you cant really solve for x.

    The point of this question isn`t to solve x, it`s most likely to simplify the equation.

    "I feel like the most retarded part is the fact that the elephant isn`t blocking anything at all."

    I think he meant it to block the area below the question where he could work out the problem.

    Demoncurtain: thank you, finally the answer makes sense. I also like the way the teacher has responded with a small picture of the USS Enterprise, thereby acknowledging the students clever cicrumvention of the question as per the Kobiyashi Maru test.

    However the question in Demoncurtains example is poorly worded, the answers its looking for are presumably... approx square root of 3 and 5m respectively.
    but...
    An object is only at rest when it stops completely isn`t it? If its still accelerating how can it be at rest?
    The spring hasn`e been defined as perfect either, so how is the student to account for the efficiency of its return?
    Finally, and most damningly - what is the elasticity coefficient for a very small elephant?

    "This problem is easy."
    "He`s stupid."
    "I can do this problem, simple."
    = None of them have the answer.

    And now someone will post the answer after either solving it or putting it into a calculator they found on Google.
    Magical, isn`t it?!?

    Yeah, SalokinX, I never said I had the answer. Never said it was easy: no claim at all hinting I knew the answer. Additionally, I don`t see you with the answer either. Maybe YOU should go back to kindergarten to learn some simple sentences, eh?
