## Questions

### Subject: Basic Math

What is 10-5?

One way to solve this problem is we can first use something real to help visualize the problem so that we understand what it means to subtract something. We can use 10 of anything to represent this problem. For example, if we have 10 cookies and we eat(or subtract) 5, how many will we have left? So lets draw 10 cookies and then cross out 5 to show that we ate the 5 cookies. Now, we can count how many are left by counting the cookies that are not crossed out. If we count correctly, there should be 5 cookies left. So, 10 - 5 = 5.

### Subject: College Admissions

Should you only apply to one college or to several colleges?

In my experience, I found that it was beneficial to apply to several colleges as opposed to just one for many reasons. I changed my mind several times, even when I thought I was sure of which college I wanted to attend, also there were a couple of colleges to which I was denied acceptance. I think because of these possibilities, it is important to have several options, even if you think you know exactly what you want to do.
