Give a 100! A Mathematical Formula for Getting Ahead
Have you even heard anyone ask you if you’re giving 100 percent? Well, we finally found a mathematical formula to help understand what it takes to give 100 percent. Here’s how it works: v
In this formula— A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
Using this formula we can determine the following:
HARDWORK is worth 8 + 1 + 18 + 4 + 23 + 15+ 18 + 11 = 98 percent And KNOWLEDGE is worth 11 + 14 + 15 + 23 + 12 + 5 + 4 + 7 + 5 = 96 percent But, ATTITUDE is worth 1 + 20 + 20 + 9 + 20 + 21 + 4 + 5 = 100 percent
So one can then conclude with mathematical certainty that: While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, Attitude will get you there!

I designed this site to help students understand mathematics through visual manipulatives. This site is a valuable resource for parents and teachers as well to use with young learners.
Thanks to brunnermath 90% of our tenth grade early college students passed the math ogt. Over 60% tested at accelerated or advanced.
