soz not 4y :S

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 5/3x + 1/3 y + 9

I need help with 3 more . Collect like terms 26x + 8 - 16x -6
anonymous
  • anonymous
Collect like terms 7p - p
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know what it means to collect like terms?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes you combine them i am just really bad at this
anonymous
  • anonymous
Collect like terms 2x +11x
anonymous
  • 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
  • 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
  • anonymous
alright i got that
anonymous
  • anonymous
so what did you get for 26x + 8 - 16x - 6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait so i add 26x + (-16x)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
It is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh unless the negative becomes a positive
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is it? drop the x, for now -> 26 + (-16)=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. so you are left with 10x + 8 - 6 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
anonymous
  • anonymous
8-6 = 2, yes, but you need to keep the 10x. So the final answer will be 10x - 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
SORRY! 10x + 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhhhh because you need to first collect the like terms! for instance this is like proportions
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, try your next one.
anonymous
  • anonymous
7p - p... Keep in mind this is the same as 7p - 1p
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know any letter "number" in algebra by its self is always 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay...so what is the simplification of this problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer will be 6p?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes! What about your last one? 2x +11x ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh k its 13x
anonymous
  • anonymous
You got it! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you so much help
anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
and the problem is x + 17 = 6
