## anonymous 5 years ago bubbles i gtg eat dinner ill b rite bak

1. anonymous

okay :)

2. anonymous

im back

3. anonymous

k :) whats your next problem?

4. anonymous

um x/-4 + 5 =1

5. 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.

6. anonymous

nothing looks alike

7. 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

8. anonymous

i think it is x/-4 = -4

9. 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? :)

10. anonymous

i dnt understand

11. anonymous

is it -4

12. 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

13. anonymous

yes i was rite

14. anonymous

yep :) good work!

15. anonymous

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

16. anonymous

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

17. anonymous

k here is another one

18. anonymous

-7 = c/-6 + 12

19. anonymous

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

20. anonymous

do we mulitply -6 n -7

21. anonymous

We will, but that is our second step.

22. anonymous

ok then do u subtract 12 from both sides

23. anonymous

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

24. anonymous

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

25. anonymous

Correct! What is our second step now?

26. anonymous

do u multiply by -6

27. anonymous

Yep! :) on both sides

28. anonymous

so the answer is c = 114

29. anonymous

Yes!!!! :)

30. anonymous

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

31. anonymous

okay :) what do we do first?

32. anonymous

i have no clue

33. 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

34. anonymous

So what would our new equation look like?

35. anonymous

its subract 7 noot -7

36. 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

37. anonymous

then u would multiply 4 to each side rite

38. anonymous

yep!

39. anonymous

so the answer would be x=60

40. anonymous

Correct!!! :)

41. anonymous

-12 = 6 + 2/3 y

42. anonymous

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

43. anonymous

subtract 6?

44. anonymous

you got it!

45. anonymous

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

46. anonymous

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

47. anonymous

nope

48. 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?

49. anonymous

so does tht mean y = 27

50. anonymous

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

51. anonymous

-17 = -32 - 3/5f

52. anonymous

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

53. anonymous

umm do we add -17 n -32

54. anonymous

yep!!! :) brb

55. anonymous

ok

56. anonymous

okay, im back

57. anonymous

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

58. 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

59. anonymous

so it would b 15 - 3/5f

60. anonymous

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

61. anonymous

huh?

62. 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

63. anonymous

so the answer would be f = 25

64. anonymous

yep!!! good work!

65. anonymous

8 - 3/8 = -4

66. anonymous

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

67. anonymous

yea iam not sure if thats right

68. anonymous

0.625 thats the answer not -4

69. anonymous

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

70. anonymous

So do you remember what do first?

71. anonymous

72. anonymous

yep :)

73. anonymous

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

74. anonymous

im bak

75. anonymous

Are you okay? okay

76. anonymous

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

77. anonymous

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

78. anonymous

would the answer be 10 2/3

79. anonymous

yep!

80. anonymous

k um -14 = s + 12/ -6

81. anonymous

okay. jas

82. anonymous

k

83. anonymous

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

84. anonymous

-2

85. anonymous

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

86. anonymous

so u would multiply -14 n 2

87. anonymous

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

88. anonymous

s = -12

89. 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

90. anonymous

So sorry! you are doing really well tho!

91. anonymous

thanks n ok bye

92. anonymous

im back, if you still need help
