um x/-4 + 5 =1

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

nothing looks alike

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

i think it is x/-4 = -4

- anonymous

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? :)

- anonymous

i dnt understand

- anonymous

is it -4

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

yes i was rite

- anonymous

yep :) good work!

- anonymous

yes wanna help me with more n im srry if im bugging u i just dnt get this stuff

- anonymous

Its all good :) I will help you all you need, and your not bugging me. You will get it soon!

- anonymous

k here is another one

- anonymous

-7 = c/-6 + 12

- anonymous

Okay, the process is just like the other one. Do you see any like terms that we can combine?

- anonymous

do we mulitply -6 n -7

- anonymous

We will, but that is our second step.

- anonymous

ok then do u subtract 12 from both sides

- anonymous

YES! :) your getting it! :)))) good job!

- anonymous

so then it would be -19 = c/-6

- anonymous

Correct! What is our second step now?

- anonymous

do u multiply by -6

- anonymous

Yep! :) on both sides

- anonymous

so the answer is c = 114

- anonymous

Yes!!!! :)

- anonymous

yay! lol here is another one x/4x - 7 = 8

- anonymous

okay :) what do we do first?

- anonymous

i have no clue

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

So what would our new equation look like?

- anonymous

its subract 7 noot -7

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

then u would multiply 4 to each side rite

- anonymous

yep!

- anonymous

so the answer would be x=60

- anonymous

Correct!!! :)

- anonymous

-12 = 6 + 2/3 y

- anonymous

Okay! How do we start? Do you know the first step?

- anonymous

subtract 6?

- anonymous

you got it!

- anonymous

the new equation would be -18 = 2/3y

- anonymous

Yes! :) Now have you learned how to divide fractions?

- anonymous

nope

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

so does tht mean y = 27

- anonymous

Close. Since 18 is negative y = -27 :)

- anonymous

-17 = -32 - 3/5f

- anonymous

Okay, so how do we start? Do yo remember? :)

- anonymous

umm do we add -17 n -32

- anonymous

yep!!! :) brb

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

okay, im back

- anonymous

ok so the new equation would be -49 - 3/5f

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

so it would b 15 - 3/5f

- anonymous

yep! :) now we multiply each side by the reciprocal to get f by itself

- anonymous

huh?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

so the answer would be f = 25

- anonymous

yep!!! good work!

- anonymous

8 - 3/8 = -4

- anonymous

Are you sure thats the right question? Is there an x by one of the numbers?

- anonymous

yea
iam not sure if thats right

- anonymous

0.625 thats the answer not -4

- anonymous

srry typed it wrong its 8 - 3/8k = -4 and christosc tht is the equation

- anonymous

So do you remember what do first?

- anonymous

ahhhh add 8 n -4?

- anonymous

yep :)

- anonymous

soo now it would b 4 = 3/8k brb im crying need a tissue

- anonymous

im bak

- anonymous

Are you okay? okay

- anonymous

my bf cheated on me n some st.upid stuff so ok bak to the problem

- anonymous

oh :( im sorry. okay. so now multiply by the reciprocal which would be 8/3 on both sides

- anonymous

would the answer be 10 2/3

- anonymous

yep!

- anonymous

k um -14 = s + 12/ -6

- anonymous

okay. jas

- anonymous

k

- anonymous

So the first thing is we can simplify the fraction 12/-6. What would 12/-6 equal?

- anonymous

-2

- anonymous

perfect! now its a simple problem: -14 = s -2

- anonymous

so u would multiply -14 n 2

- anonymous

not quite. this time you would just add 2 to each side and there is your answer :)

- anonymous

s = -12

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

So sorry! you are doing really well tho!

- anonymous

thanks n ok bye

- anonymous

im back, if you still need help
