• What are the blue fuzzy squares supposed to resemble
• Sal always likes to sketch drawings and fill them in with an airbrush. That was just an example.
• does this mean when we measure we have to leave no space in between and start from the exact bottom?
• because if I put over the bottom , I would make a mistake .
• or 6 that will be 5
• why are you measuring a golden statue
• It is just an example to teach measurment with general units
• I love it how he stays in character.. XD, But it was a good idea to make a video so much fun to watch, laugh, and learn from!
• who making the voice
• It's Sal talking for both voices, but he made his voice higher to sound like a different person when he was the king talking.
• you should speed up or slow down the video, it really m makes math more tolerable
