### Solve

Lyrics by Matthew Neal
Sung to the tune of “Roar” by Katy Perry, Bonnie McKee, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Cirkut

Got no idea what I’m doing next
The problem says I have to solve for x
No insights can I glean. What do these numbers mean?

Try to remember my old teacher’s voice
So that I can find the right answer choice
A, B, C, or D? What possibilities

Combine like terms, is where I start (Hey!)
Inverse is going to play a part
I won’t stop now, I’m in the zone
I gotta get the x alone

If I should add, then I subtract (Hey!)
Reverse and then it’s still a fact
For multiply you divide

I’m going to answer the question, no guessing, remember all the lessons
That my teacher taught me, ’cause you’re gonna see me solve

Amazing, this test I will be acing
Cause I’m a mathematician and you’re gonna see me solve
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
(Repeat x3)
You’re gonna see me solve

I think that my answer is correct
On second thought, I had better check
The number I bubbled in, I’d better plug it in.

Replace the x, with my answer (Hey!)
It’s time to use your calculator
If it equals the other side.
