This is math???

Can someone please explain to me how this works? I’m a college graduate who majored in business and finance and I don’t understand it. My 10 year old son went from all A’s to a C in math. How are we parents supposed to help our children with homework if we don’t understand it?

Is it me or have the school systems under Common Core taken simple math and turned it into something resembling a foreign language? This is ridiculous!

Let me know what you think! :)
