Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x + 1 = 3 undo +1 by 1 from both sides to get balanced 2x=2 divide both sides by 2 x=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, you would have to go through the order of operations, and start with the... ugh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0inverse operation + and , x and /

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can start simpler: how about: x+3 = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are correct, but why is it 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0always undo addition or subtraction first then multiplication or division...you got it!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:D so, can you give me a harder one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0almost correct :) 5  3 = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops thats what i meant... that would be a negative right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but lets step thru this easy one so you can know what is going on underneath it all. It does no good to simply go ..thats an easy one! and give the answer right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x + 3 = 5 that equal sign means that we want to keep things in balance, have you ever played on a seesaw?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what happens when the kids on each end weigh the same?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one will have to push off to make them move, or else it will be balanced. and that would still be 2

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct :) now, we want to keep our equation balanced at ALL TIMES!! otherwise it becomes a lie...and lies are bad :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we want to solve for "x" we need to get it all by itself so we can ask it some personal stuff.... we need to get rid of all that stuff that is attached to it right?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah... so you would have to follow order of operations?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0order of operations is good to know, and we will get to that sometime.. but lets take this step by step so we understand the basics that every other problem you come across will face ok?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. i'm sorry i suck at math :/

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0those are the basics just remember to use the order of operations backwards ; )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so lets look at the (x+3). its got extra stuff; it has a (+3) sticking to it right? If we could get this to be more like (x+0) that would be great right?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we want x+0 :) how do we get rid of (+3) and turn it into "0"??

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ummmmm.... put it in parenthises?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats correct, we would take away 3. So lets do that here: x+33 = 53 because if we take away from one side we gotta take away from the other right?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. so x would equal 2?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it will....but lets see why. we get x+0 = 2 from this. And we all no that zero is pretty useless...not!! x+0 = x, and thats important to know :) so x = 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait where did you get the 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tell me what I do with this one now: t  4 = 3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0turn the 4 into 0? i think i know the answer to this though

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets turn the 4 into how? we have t  4 .... what doe we do to turn it into t+0 ??

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets try that and see if it works ok? t  4  4 = 3 t  8 = 3 .... that didnt do us much good did it? lets go back to: t  4 = 3

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. so would we change it to 43=t?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0stay with me now :) do you see that t is attached to a (4)? t4

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do we get rid of a 4?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets try it out: t 4+4 = 3+4 t0 = 7 t = 7

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think i understand that.. but why wouldn't the 3 be a negative if its... wait i'm confusing myself....

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we add 4 to EACH side right? t 4+4 = 3+4 what does 3+4 =?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be the same concept as 5*5 right.

anonymous

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. if we add to get rid of a subtraction. And we Subtract to get rid of an addition; what do youthink we might do to get rid og a multiplier?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we dont have to know alot about division for this really; we only have to know that any number divided by itself equals 1

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why is the number 1 important to us in multiplying?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x+8=16 8 8 2x=8 2x/2=8/2 x=4

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes... so.... what would we divide? 5 ÷ 5? that would =1

anonymous

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05x = 15 you say we need to divide by 5 correct? do we do that to both sides?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and i'm kind of ignoring what you say sarah1000 nothing personal, but amistre64 is helping alot

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah... so.... would we get rid of the x?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the x we want to keep, its gona tells us its secrets when we get it all alone :)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0WOA haha XD so.. do we get rid of anything?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05x=15 /5 /5 x=3 its that easy first you do the oppsisite of mulipling 5x is divison then you divided 5 form both sides to get x by it self then you divded it and you get 3

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can remove that 5 from it by division: 5x/5 = x ok? 5x/5 = 15/5 x = 15/5 is our answer. You can reduce it some if you want, but a calculator will accept it as is ;)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.015/3=3 becuase on the other side you dont have to divided it all you have to do it cross out the 5 beacuse its the same the you write x=3

amistre64

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we got 4 option: addition subtraction multiplication and division. we already know when to add and subtract, and this doesnt look like those. we know to divide when its stuck by multiplication.....so what should we do when its stuck by division? yor best guess
