Hmm. what was the original problem asking you to do or find?

the slope and the y intercept of the line

What information were you given?

-7=1/2y

yes

is it -7 = (1/2) * y or -7 = 1/(2y)?

-7=1/2y that is all it gives. no ()

Is the y in the numerator or denominator?

it is a fraction with y beside the line

i really appreciate you helping me

oh ok

So that means that y is being multiplied by (1/2), one-half

yes

OK, so how do I clear the fraction or do I?

why by 2 what happened to the fraction

sorry I'm not good with this

Oh ok.

Not quite.

I didn't give you the money yet.

20

oh

Yeah.

2000

Exactly

You just solved "(1/2)* y = 1000"

To solve (1/2)*y = -7 for y, it's the same idea

oh ok

if I have +7 and divide by 2?

No, when we solved for y, what did you do to the 1000? You multiplied by 2.

So if (1/2) * y = -7, then to solve for y, we should multiply -7 by 2

makes it -7/2

If I moved the -7 to the other side of the = sign don't that make it +

Well, when we multiply 7 by 2, we get 14. So multiplying -7 by 2 gives us -14.

you lost me

No, that's only if you're adding the -7 to the other side.

I thought that is what I had to do to get y=mx + B

Oh, I can see why you're confused.

If A = B, then B = A.

So if -7 = (1/2) * y, then (1/2) * y = -7.

I thought when you moved it to the other side of the = you had to add or subtract it?

ok thanks for trying

But does it make sense to you that if A = B then B = A?

yes

What about if A = -7, then -7 = A?

ok

hello every1

good luck karebear

thanks
