bubbles i gtg eat dinner ill b rite bak
k :) whats your next problem?
um x/-4 + 5 =1
Okay, the first thing to do is to combine like terms. How do you think you can do that? We want to combine numbers that look alike.
nothing looks alike
Okay. Since the 5 has no x by it that means we can combine it with the 1. We do this by subtracting 5 from each side. Try this and tell me what you think the new equation would look like
i think it is x/-4 = -4
Perfect! You got this! Next we need to isolate the variable (x) by multiplying each side by -4. What does the equation look like now? And can you find the answer? :)
i dnt understand
is it -4
Okay, thats okay too. So our equation looks like this: x/-4 = -4. Since x is being divided by the -4 we need to get the x by itself and multiply x/-4 times -4 which would give us x. since we multiplied one side by -4 we multiple the other side by -4. And since two negatiavies that are mupltiplied by each other equal a positive your answer is x = 16
yes i was rite
yep :) good work!
yes wanna help me with more n im srry if im bugging u i just dnt get this stuff
Its all good :) I will help you all you need, and your not bugging me. You will get it soon!
k here is another one
-7 = c/-6 + 12
Okay, the process is just like the other one. Do you see any like terms that we can combine?
do we mulitply -6 n -7
We will, but that is our second step.
ok then do u subtract 12 from both sides
YES! :) your getting it! :)))) good job!
so then it would be -19 = c/-6
Correct! What is our second step now?
do u multiply by -6
Yep! :) on both sides
so the answer is c = 114
yay! lol here is another one x/4x - 7 = 8
okay :) what do we do first?
i have no clue
No problem! We start out like we did before by combining like numbers. So since the -7 and the 8 are not connected to any x's we can combine them
So what would our new equation look like?
its subract 7 noot -7
Opps :) okay. So since the 7 is being subtracted we can add 7 to each side. So the new equation would be x/4x = 15
then u would multiply 4 to each side rite
so the answer would be x=60
-12 = 6 + 2/3 y
Okay! How do we start? Do you know the first step?
you got it!
the new equation would be -18 = 2/3y
Yes! :) Now have you learned how to divide fractions?
Okay, no problem. So to divide by a fraction we have to actually multiple by the reciprocal. This means that instead of dividing by 2/3 from each side, we multiply each side by 3/2. The reciprocal just basically means the opposite of the fraction. Does that make sense?
so does tht mean y = 27
Close. Since 18 is negative y = -27 :)
-17 = -32 - 3/5f
Okay, so how do we start? Do yo remember? :)
umm do we add -17 n -32
yep!!! :) brb
okay, im back
ok so the new equation would be -49 - 3/5f
Since we have to add the 32 that is negative to both sides we add it, so it is actually -17 + 32 which would be 15 :) but you got the right idea
so it would b 15 - 3/5f
yep! :) now we multiply each side by the reciprocal to get f by itself
since the equation is 15 = -3/5f we have to multiply each side by the reciprocal of -3/5 which would be 5/3. that would cancel out the right side, and on the left side we would have 15 times 5/3 = f
so the answer would be f = 25
yep!!! good work!
8 - 3/8 = -4
Are you sure thats the right question? Is there an x by one of the numbers?
yea iam not sure if thats right
0.625 thats the answer not -4
srry typed it wrong its 8 - 3/8k = -4 and christosc tht is the equation
So do you remember what do first?
ahhhh add 8 n -4?
soo now it would b 4 = 3/8k brb im crying need a tissue
Are you okay? okay
my bf cheated on me n some st.upid stuff so ok bak to the problem
oh :( im sorry. okay. so now multiply by the reciprocal which would be 8/3 on both sides
would the answer be 10 2/3
k um -14 = s + 12/ -6
So the first thing is we can simplify the fraction 12/-6. What would 12/-6 equal?
perfect! now its a simple problem: -14 = s -2
so u would multiply -14 n 2
not quite. this time you would just add 2 to each side and there is your answer :)
s = -12
perfect! I have to go help my roommate clean the bathroom now, but if you need more help I will be back in about 30 min
So sorry! you are doing really well tho!
thanks n ok bye
im back, if you still need help
