Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A is (5,3) B is (4,3) Notice the 3 stayed the same how much changed for the xvalue from 4 to 5

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah igot it is 8 points .

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay thats not right. let's try a different way. look at the xcoordinates for A and B. which is A = 5 and B = 4. then add those numbers together (don't bother with the negative sign. just ignore it). what do you get when you add them together.

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.09 im very confused about this

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u said it was 4 thats why igot 1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know. but i also said to ignore the negative sign. when dealing in distances you don't deal with negative numbers that's why you can ignore the negative sign and treat the number like a positive number. do you understand this?

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah now idoo . so its 9 points to get across to another point?

dumbcow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0           here is a visual how many dashes on either side

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. it's 9 points. now lets figure out the perimeter. how would you go about figuring this out?

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0iget it now ... its going to be 9 times 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know the formula for area?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. area = length x width (A= lw) what is the length and width?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. length refers to number of points from A to B or C to D. width refers to the number of points from A to D or B to C.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what does length equal and width equal?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. remember before when you found that all the distances from each point are 9. that's why the perimeter is 4 x 9. because there are 4 sides and each side has the distance of 9. so when finding area all you need to do is take the distance from one side and multiply it by another side. you with me?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. do you want me to try to explain the area formula?

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. here's a sample problem: find the area of the rectangle. ____________     5 ___________ 7 the area formula is A=lw A=Area l = length w = width so the find the area of the above rectangle you need to do what first?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. good job :) the length is 7 the width is 5 do you have another problem that you want to solve?

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes . A) draw a rectangle using Algebra tiles with area 2x + 4. write an algebraic expression for the dimensions of the rectangle formed with the tiles. B) draw a rectangle using Algebra tiles with area 2x^2 + 4x in two different ways. write the algebraic expression for each rectangle. C) how are the sketches for parts (a) and (b) different?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A) okay this would help if you draw a rectangle (don't worry about the dimensions we'll figure that out later).

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0_______________      something like this. now we'll need to use the area formula to figure out the dimensions. can you tell me what the area formula is?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the rectangle i drew is just a visual aid. i'm asking for the area formula. whenever someone is asking for a math formula they don't want specific numbers but the general formula that uses letters that represent numbers. you with me?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for this specific problem the area does equal 2x + 4, however, i'm asking for the general area formula that applies to any area question. the area formula is A=lw. can you tell me what l and w mean?

andreaa
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the area formula is A=lw A=Area l = length w = width

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. good job. now for this problem they gave you area. A = 2x + 4. so we know that also equals length time width A = lw A = 2x + 4 2x + 4 = lw you with me?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. do you know what substitution means?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you taking algebra 1?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0have you gone over factoring?

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes but idont get math at all

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0don't worry most people don't get it. it just takes practice. now can you factor anything out from 2x + 4?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can factor something out from both terms. can you tell me what the greatest common factor is for 2x and 4?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think about it like this. 2x = (2)(1)(x) 4 = (2)(2) they both have in common a 2. so we can factor out the 2 so it looks like this: 2(1x + 2) make sense?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay let's do this in steps step 1: start with the original expression which in this case is 2x + 4 step 2: break the expression down into its factors: (2)(1)(x) + (2)(2) which still equals the original expression step 3: find the number that both terms have in common, which would be 2 step 4: factor out the 2 so it looks like this: 2(x+2) which still equals the original expression do you have any questions about this?

andreaa

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah iget what u explained to me just a lil idont get how to do the problems

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay remember the area formula is A=lw and the problem stated that the A=2x+4. we then factored the area into 2(x+2) which gives us 2 separate terms the problem is asking for the dimensions which is length and width A=lw A=2x+4 2x+4 = 2(x+2) A=2(x+2) 2(x+2) = lw you with me?

andreaa
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah so iwrite tht down for A

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not quite. can you tell me what the length is?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. the area is 2x+4. i'm asking for the length area formula: A=lw A=area l= length w=width

andreaa
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so u asked for the formula?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm sorry but i don't know how else to explain this so here are the answers A) draw a rectangle using Algebra tiles with area 2x + 4. write an algebraic expression for the dimensions of the rectangle formed with the tiles. answer: A = 2(x+2) A=2x+4 l = 2 w = x+2 B) draw a rectangle using Algebra tiles with area 2x^2 + 4x in two different ways. write the algebraic expression for each rectangle. answer: A = 2x^2 + 4x A = 2x(x+2) l = 2x w = x+2
