In summary, the conversation discusses a problem for a k-12 assignment that involves organizing nuts and screws in a certain way. It is suggested to group them by size and place them on opposite sides. The second question involves using a number line, but it turns out that the number line system on Desmos is no longer functioning. However, the person speaking has a previous version of the number line which they use to answer similar questions. The conversation ends with the person offering further assistance if needed.

Hey all, I was doing this one problem for a k-12 assignment but I didn't quite understand what it meant when it asked me to how it should be organized.Here's what the question looks like:

I'm having a very hard time trying to figure it out, but I don't know the BEST way to organize (nuts and screws first or bolts?)

For the second question I tried doing a desmos graph since it asked to draw on a "number line"

Hello Yamaa!

It's pretty simple actually.

For the first one, adding in the nuts and screws first would be much simpler, as they are not as long as the bolts.

First thing's first is to separate them into 2 different groups. Bigger screws with bigger screws and bigger nuts with bigger nuts etc...

We now have 4 separate groups, place the 2 groups of nuts on one side and the screws on the other. Does this make sense? Now try figuring it out for yourself!As for the second one, the main problem is that Desmos no longer has a functioning number line system, it's mostly just graphs and what not.
However I've answered this same question before and thus I have this number line from a previous version of Desmos which I've used to help with these questions.

Take a look:

As you can see, many of the nuts and screws are under 1 on the number line, making them easy to spot. Whilst the bolts are farther ahead due to their large size.

I hope I've helped you out! And please tell me if there's anything else you need!

You proved to be quite helpful, um, to yourself.
