      Gaming Math

      Okay.. I suck MAJORLY at math.
      I'm currently grinding in Runescape.

      Could someone tell me if my math is correct?

      I need 60,900 xp to level up my Constitution

      1 lvl 83 Roach = 100 xp in Constitution
      I can kill 10 roaches in 10 minutes
      Which would give me 1000 xp in an hour.

      And now I start confusing myself.
      60,900 (total xp)/100 (single xp) = 609/10 (minutes)= 60.9 hours until I level.
      ???But if I get 1,000 xp an hour, should I be dividing by 1,000 or what?

      It doesn't help that I'm in a brain fog today.

      Is it 1,000 xp per hour or 1 roach per minute (6k per hour)?

      If the former, 60900/1000=60.9 hours
      If the later, 60900/6000=10.15 hours

      Also lol runescape

      Ugh... it's 1,000 xp for 10 minutes (100 xp for each roach killed- 10 roaches + 10 minutes = 100 xp x's 10 min. = 1,000) Or am I getting even that wrong lol. My brain is seriously malfunctioning today

      ahhh, so that would be 6,000 in one hour. Thanks!

      hurrumph. Runescape is the POOR mans version of WoW
      I still love it though.

      Or am I confusing myself because I'm combining equations?

      1 roach=100 xp so I divided that with 60,900 total xp needed which gave me 609. I would need to kill 609 roaches to reach my goal.
      But how many hours would that equal?
      609 roaches at 10 roaches in 10 minutes... or 1 roach a minute... 609 minutes? So 609 minutes/60 (min. in 1 hr)= 10 hours 15 minutes.

      How am I over thinking this lol. I couldn't figure out how you got to 10.15 until now

      Think of it this way:

      1 roach per minute = 100xp per minute

      100 x 60 = 6,000 xp per hour

      (total xp)/(xp per hour) = (number of hours)

      so, 60,900/6,000 = 10.15 hours

      Oh it's constitution, no wonder I was wondering why it takes so long to level up once.

      I'm still playing RuneScape off and on though!

      I'm still fighting roaches lol It's my new favorite place to be.

      Now it's time to level up my strength. Too bad I can't use my whip for that!

      hehee, I wish I was a math nerd. I have dyscalculia that was undiagnosed throughout school. I could memorize math just long enough to squeeze by. Dropped out of school and passed my GED with the LOWEST possible score in math

      Carrot, yep. I don't like to play at all without membership. Now-a-days you can buy cards at Walmart or some gas station/convenient stores. They're under $8. for a months membership.

      They don't have it here. Remember I'm living in an Asian country? Or probably I'm not looking hard enough but I've not chanced upon any RuneScape cards in any convenience stores.

      Talking about Maths, I used to be quite good at it too. But the only reason I was good at it was because my memory was good. Hahaha.
