Say we had another box capable of multiplying two numbers together. See figure 1.7b. We can connect these boxes together to calculate p * (m + n). See Figure 1.7c. Assume we have an unlimited number of these boxes. Show how to connect them together to calculate: a. ax+b b. The average of the four input numbers w, x, y, and z c. a 2 + 2ab + b 2 (can you do it with one add box and one multiply box?) d. a 6 (can you do it using only 3 multiply boxes?)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
