Algebra Antics

Why do most people panic when it comes to algebra? In a word: variables. How strange that letters, which seem so natural when used for words, become frightening when used with numbers. Think of a variable as a magic box that can hold any size number. To tell boxes apart, we paint a different letter on each. Your goal is to find out what's in each box -- without opening them! And that's where the fun starts!
