Many introductory university-level composition classes use a five paragraph structure for the argumentative essay . The five paragraphs include an introduction, three main points, and a conclusion. This structure is useful for teaching students who are new to writing argumentative essays because it provides a clear format for them to follow. However, upper-level composition courses often abandon this format, allowing more points to be made or for more complex points to be made that may span more than one paragraph. In addition, the counterargument may require its own paragraph in a complex argumentative essay.

I’m ending this right now…..
This has nothing to do with math. As others have eluded too. It is an issues of semantics…nothing more, nothing less. It is evident from the posts…that most of us can do the math…be it long hand or with a sci calculator, or if your a self proclaimed genius like myself…then you are fortunate enough to just run the numbers in your head and whala!
So really, it never should have been a discussion about math…but rather–a discussion about semantics.
Wait a minute! It should not have been a discussion about either of those things. What the hell was the point of the original post anyway?
See! Thats why I’m calling the FTC…there is trickery going on here, and I’m going to get to the bottom of it.
