Answers and Solutions

Answers and solutions are synonymous words to describe how problems are solved. They are, however, not the same.

For example:

1/2 ÷ 1/2 is (of course) equal to 1

We know that a/b divided by a/b will always be 1, that's a divisional property. (Division is the inverse operation to multiplication)

Most people will be quick to point out that 1 is the answer,
but some will not know why it is so.

This is how I feel right now.

I know the answer but there is a cloud in my brain - I can not see the solution.

The irony of problem solving is this:

"sometimes you know the answers but you have no solutions"

"Not wrong" is not the same as "you are correct"

just search your mind for the answers of the questions for the answer of the questions that you seek.
