the question needs to be reworded so that she is sawing X pieces off one board, not sawing one board into X pieces

The student is right. The teacher misread the question and thought it said, "twice as fast" and not "just as fast".
2 pieces needs 1 cut, 3 pieces needs 2 cuts. 1 cut (assuming all else is equal) takes 10 minutes, so 20 minutes for 3 pieces is the right answer.

the only way that the teacher is right is if the board magically thinned by half its original depth

cause the teacher is retarded. the teacher is arguing that time is based on how many pieces are made in the time frame, where the student (who is right) is arguing that time is based on how many cuts are made.

oh i think i got it
1 cut is 10 minutes so that means to get 3 peices u have to cut twice and double ur time so 2 cuts is 20 minutes
i get it now :D

take a piece of paper(represents wood) rip it twice you know have 3 pieces if you took half as long to rip it yu would only rip it half way

Lol the teacher is right. The question is if she works JUST AS FAST
But why is she cutting wood in the kitchen anyways
User avatar #8 to #4 - IHateFJ (10/18/2010) [-]
yeah just as fast meaning 5 minutes every one cut
User avatar #9 to #8 - LOLTitan (10/18/2010) [-]
Someone help me im confused
User avatar #11 to #9 - IHateFJ (10/18/2010) [-]
ok think of 10 for 1 cut (1 cut makes two peices)
then think about making the 1 cut into 2 cuts (2 cuts makes three peices)
so if u double the number of cuts u have to double to time
10 plus 10 equals 20 minutes

No, you are wrong.

After 10 Minutes you have two pieces of wood. Let W stand for wood and T stand for time. We then have a formula {Wood = .1T +1 }; Let Wood equal 3 pieces and we will solve for T.
3 = .1t +1
2 = .1t
20 = t

So, I have just proven that at 20 minutes you will have 3 pieces of wood. Thus, the student is correct.
