4/3x+(2/6y=)1/3y+9

- anonymous

(7/3x - 2/3x) + (5/6y-1/2y) + 9
(5/3x) + (5/6y - 3/6y) + 9
5/3x + 2/6y + 9

Collect like terms
26x + 8 - 16x -6

- anonymous

Collect like terms
7p - p

- anonymous

Do you know what it means to collect like terms?

- anonymous

Yes you combine them i am just really bad at this

- anonymous

Collect like terms
2x +11x

- anonymous

Okay. Well, the first...let's rearrange it so it's easier to see.
26x - 16x + 8 - 6
Now, since 26 and 16 are both multiplied by x, you can add them together. And I assume you know how to add 8 and -6!

- anonymous

you just have to remember to carry the signs with the coefficients. Coefficient just means the number multiplied by the variable - from the first question, 26 and -16 are the coefficients of x.

- anonymous

alright i got that

- anonymous

so what did you get for 26x + 8 - 16x - 6?

- anonymous

wait so i add 26x + (-16x)

- anonymous

Yes.

- anonymous

that is 0

- anonymous

It is?

- anonymous

oh unless the negative becomes a positive

- anonymous

Is it? drop the x, for now -> 26 + (-16)=?

- anonymous

it is 10

- anonymous

Yes. so you are left with 10x + 8 - 6 = ?

- anonymous

2

- anonymous

8-6 = 2, yes, but you need to keep the 10x. So the final answer will be
10x - 2

- anonymous

SORRY! 10x + 2

- anonymous

ohhhhh because you need to first collect the like terms! for instance this is like proportions

- anonymous

So, try your next one.

- anonymous

7p - p... Keep in mind this is the same as 7p - 1p

- anonymous

i know any letter "number" in algebra by its self is always 1

- anonymous

Okay...so what is the simplification of this problem?

- anonymous

the answer will be 6p?

- anonymous

Yes!
What about your last one?
2x +11x ?

- anonymous

oh k its 13x

- anonymous

You got it! :)

- anonymous

thank you so much help

- anonymous

You are welcome. You can give me a medal as thanks! :)

- anonymous

and the problem is
