    Too many questions. What do you actually want answered and what is it you're confused about?

    hey hunterprincess, you may have better luck if you break this up into multiple questions. I wouldn't change this one, but in general

    I'll do the first one, but I agree, too many questions: 16. Simplify the following: -2 – (7 + 10) = -2 -7 - 10 = -19 8 – 11 – 10 = -13 -2 – 7 + 3 = -6

    Yeah, a bit of advice I presented earlier -- ask one question at a time, and wait for someone to help you. Then, try the other problems by yourself, and ask for help when you run into a wall again. You will definitely learn better and have less trouble this way :)

    I don't mind helping, but, I don't know what the problem is. Is it with distributing negatives, or order of operations? Do you not know what a prime number is, or is the problem not understanding prime factorization? Do you not understand the concept of multiples or is it LCM itself you are having issues with. I like helping as a teacher in training, but context is helpful.

    Prime factorization is where you take a number and break it up into prime numbers that, when multiplied together, give the original number. For example, if I wanted the prime factorization of 192, the first thing I would do is divide by 2. That would give 96. Then I'd divide by 2 again, giving 48. Again, divide 48 by 2 to give 24. Again for 12, and again for 6, and one last time for 3. Since 2 and 3 are both prime numbers, you're done. Since you divided the original number by 2 6 times and ended up with 3, the prime factorization would be 2^6*3 or 2*2*2*2*2*2*3.

    When you get a prime factorization, it's always a good idea to double check it by evaluating it and making sure you end up with the original.
