randy's solid math
just because I’m an extra lil shit I calculated the rate at which my number of followers has been growing in the past 35 days. I came up with an equation which was pretty damn accurate (y = 11.3x + 219.5 where x equals the number of days and y equals the number of followers).
I tested it a bunch of different ways to see if it was accurate and it totally is, it’s awesome. So all I have to do is plug in a number and I can predict how many days it’ll take to reach a follower goal, or how many followers I’ll gain in x number of days.
For example, right now I’m at 615 followers and according to the current given information I have I’m on day 35. What if I want to know approximately how many followers I’ll have around this time tomorrow? All I need to do is add one to 35, then plug that in for x. That brings me to, let’s see… 626.3, so approximately 626 followers. Well, this time tomorrow, we’ll see if I’m correct!
Currently my big goal is to hit 1,000 followers. I wonder how long that’ll take me? Well, all I need to do is plug my desired number of followers in for y and solve. After solving for x I’m left with x=69.071. I just subtract the day I’m on (which is 35) from that, and now I’m at 34.071. So now I can estimate that it’ll take me about 34 days to hit my goal of 1000 followers, give or take!
And all it took was figuring out one equation, which was pretty simple to be honest. I think this is why people tell us algebra and shit applies to real life. Thanks to learning algebra and having y=mx+b drilled into my brain, now I can figure out cool things like all that. Neat, isn’t it?
