• This video is so confusing that I feel brain dead like Kaminari...somone explain this more simple to me so I don't fry my brain with electric from my headphones because they are dead...
• Thanks for advice. And at least someone understood my joke...I'm just trying to lighten up the mood with comedy from My Hero Academia..And I was trying to be funny, I like making jokes like that.
• why don't the videos match what the questions are talking about in the actual practice lesson?
• This video uses the actual practice lesson. The format looks different because it is the old format that KA had until a couple of years ago. But the problems do come from the exercise set.

• this isnt helping at all
• Well, it makes sense. Variables also have several unknowns. But it's one of each. 2V + V
V in this case is equal to 1. So the solution is 3V.
And remember the video before. The variable means 1V. V can be anything.
• Can someone explain this, please?
• im confused i dont understand anything
• I was wondering how you got the tulips are v and bouquets as t?
• The problem tells you that V = price of Violets and T = price of Tulips. No where does it tell you that "tulips are v and bouquets as t".
