yes...Can you help me figure out the answer?
Artist, do you see how he arrived at that equation?
Ok, so how many x's do you have there on the left side.
Ok, so 5x. And what is the sum of the non-x's on the left side.
Protip: Use (x-2) + (x-1) + x + (x+1) + (x+2)
4+3+2+1 is not 4.
Ok, so the left side is 5x + 10 , and that equals 75. What is x?
No. What are the steps to solving \[5x + 10 = 75\]
What do you do first?
No. Isolate the x term, but subtracting 10 from both sides.
err by subtracting I mean.
Then divide both sides by 5 is the second step. What is x?
Ok, so 13 is x is the first number, then what is the third number?
The sum of 5 sequential integers . The first integer is 13, what is the integer that comes after 13?
Duh,14...so the third number is 15?
13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 = 75
Of course! =)
I fanned you! Can you fan me? you'll be my tenth fan!
Not that it matters much, but sure ;p
Thanks...It's kinda neat to have ten fans...
My method was cleaner *sad face*
I agree Newton, but ankur had already started in this vein, and it doesn't matter much either way, so long as the method is understood.
Yes...I agree...Maybe next time INewton....
