g-12=-6

OpenStudy (anonymous):

What is the question? Find g?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yea

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Add 12 to both sides: g=-6+12

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

What more is left? To solve for a variable, you need to bring all constants to one side and then calculate.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

left side is more

OpenStudy (turingtest):

than what?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

The way I would solve this question that is simplest, is to take the number beside the variable (g) and move it to the other side. Remember that whenever you move something to another side of the equation, (so across the = sign) it becomes the opposite. So a -12 would become +12. Therefore, g=-6+12. This can also be represented as g=12-6.

I'm sure your teacher will also accept g=-6+12 though. They mean the exact same thing.

OpenStudy (turingtest):

if you can do 12-6 that is...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I don't think she can and understands. She posted the same question again and when someone said g=6, she asked how the person got that answer.

OpenStudy (turingtest):

^agreed

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Oh okay, I see. Countrygirl, g=12-6 has one more step to it. You actually need to subtract the 6, so that your final answer is 6. My bad, I thought you only needed help figuring out how to rearrange the equation.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and leave me alone k
