Can you help me understand this Mathematics question?

In your own words, answer the following questions. This is an opportunity for you to share your thoughts on important concepts from this module.

By reviewing your classmates’ posts, do you find that you agree/disagree with their thoughts? Did they have ideas that you found helpful or that you had not considered yourself?

This is a “post first” discussion. You will only see your classmates’ postings once you have submitted your initial post. Please be sure to check your posts for spelling and grammar. You must complete your initial post and short reply to two of your classmates’ postings as scheduled for credit.
