4 Step Problem Solving

If I draw the diagram as a circle with 10 points (representing each of the 10 people), I can visualize each saying hello.

Step 3 - Carry out the plan Drawing the diagram of one person saying hello, we see that each person will have to say hello 9 times, thus there will be 10 people each saying hello 9 times. Finally, Step 4 - Check your work90 hellos might not make sense if there are 10 people; you might think the answer should have been 100.

You are picking a place to start, testing (with very simplistic tests to peek into the actual values), and then fine-tuning/adjusting bit-by-bit until you find the root cause. Wow, your code will exponentially increase in quality. Just like programming, it’s a logical, step-by-step process where you start at the 30,000 foot view and then incrementally drill down.

After that, we needed to know how many were eaten if only 5 remained after the party.

To find out, we wrote an equation that would resolve the sub-goal while working toward the main goal. Obviously, we would need the prior knowledge that 1 dozen equals 12.

I need to know how many times the word 'hello' is said. Step 2 - Devise a plan A diagram might be a great to show me what is happening here.

Problem solving models are used to address the many challenges that arise in the workplace.

While many people regularly solve problems, there are a range of different approaches that can be used to find a solution.

The final step in the process is very important, but many students skip it, feeling like they have an answer so they can move on now.

The final step is to Look Back, which really means to check your work. Try using Polya's 4-Step Process to solve this riddle: There are 10 people at a party.
