What may be the earliest note of an equation is found in the ancient Egyptian records of Ahmes in the following form: “heap, its two-thirds, its half, its seventh, its whole gives 97.” If we interpret “its two-thirds” as “two thirds of the heap” and assume that we are adding all of these amounts, we can find out how big the heap is. Proceed.

Let *x* represent the size of the heap.

I really needed the individual math programs for kids which would be selected specifically for me, taking into account my characteristics and skills, and the required pace.
