# Students Learn Life Skills in Math Curriculum

## Transcript

Hello, my name is Stefan. Today, I'm going to be speaking on how students learn life skills in math curriculum. One of the best skills I like to use in learning math is rate comparisons, let's say for example if you earn $10 in two weeks, how long would it take you to earn $20, we'll call it that X. If we're going by the same rate, then this has to be equal in rate. So X will equal 40, cross multiply, 40/10 which equals 4. And you can keep using this method for things like if you are taking a cab somewhere, it takes $30 to go 10 miles, how much would it cost if you are trying to go 30 miles? So if you solve for that X would be equal to 900/10 which equals 90. So there's a good rate comparison that's very useful.
