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