2.9+3.6= 6.5

6.5/2= 3.25

This is because 3.6 - 2.9 = 0.7
Half of 0.7 = 0.35
2.9 + 0.35 = 3.25

Hope this helps

Maths is my weakest subject. I'm good at History, English literature, RE and Sociology.

Using upper/ lower bounds:

2.9 is the lower value of these hence the lower bound is 2.85

3.6 is the upper value hence the upper bound is 3.65

2.85 + 3.65 = 6.5

Then 6.5 /2 = 3.25

Find the average (arithmetic mean).
2.9 + 3.6 = 6.5
6.5 / 2 = 3.25

i hope that helped

How narrow minded can you be? Some people excel in one area, others in others. Instead of telling someone they're a hindrance, which they are not, how about actually helping them, giving them a confidence boost, showing them they can do it?
It is people with your attitude that become the hindrance to progress - by belittling them and telling them they're not very good which causes them to give up because there is little point. How about encouragement and giving help?

If this is a genuine reply then you've got some serious issues if you think you can demean people like this. I struggled like hell in Maths, but I worked at it (mainly outside of school) and got a grade C in Higher, would you say I was a hindrance to my maths group? Instead of those who deliberately disrupted the class and teacher?? As I say, I struggled with Maths and now work in Air Traffic Control where maths is used on a daily basis.

The OP was merely asking a question, nout wrong with that, everyone's here to help.

To the OP, being taught maths at school is tough, don't ever think of yourself as a hindrance, the clown who wrote that on here - ignore them, try and fit in extra maths at home inbetween studying for your other subjects. You'll do alright 👍
