Zhengjie,

ReplyDeleteFrom you storyline, could you elaborate why you tag a number to X, U and Y?

Carisa,

ReplyDeleteAm I right to interpret that in your storyline, you made reference to a typical school week - with the weekend interpreted as "holidays"?

Darryl

ReplyDeleteWith what you defined, could you come up with an expresssion using "Y"? (or is there another variable "A" you mentioned at the start of the story?)

Dear S1-02

Well Done, everybody :D
