parallel means you use the same equation just plug in your x and y values to get a new sum
amistre64
  • amistre64
we can also start by getting rid of the fractions; multiply it all by 2
amistre64
  • amistre64
3x -6y = ..... ; now use your x and y

im still confussed...
amistre64
  • amistre64
thats becasue you havent learned how math works yet...
amistre64
  • amistre64
if you tell me what your confused about, i might be able to help
anonymous
  • anonymous
nope i slept through my classes in high school and now its coming back to haunt me
amistre64
  • amistre64
do you recall the 5/5 = 1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
amistre64
  • amistre64
then thats all i did to clear the fractions: if theres a 2 on the bottom, what needs to be on top to clear it? a 2 right? 2/2 = 1
amistre64
  • amistre64
whatever you do to one thing you do to them all: 3(2)/2x -3(2)y = 27(2)/2 3x -6y = 27 looks better right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i can do english or other subjects no problem but this stuff makes me feel so stupid
amistre64
  • amistre64
do you understand how i cleared the fractions?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes that looks better
anonymous
  • anonymous
kinda
amistre64
  • amistre64
now, to get a parallel line; we use the same equation but that 27 is garbage to us; throw it out and get a new number there
amistre64
  • amistre64
this point they give you: (3,4) MEANS (x=3,y=4), so wherever you see an x plug in a 3; wherever you see a y plug in a 4

  • anonymous
k...3x-6y so 3(3)-(4) ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
3x -6y = ____ 3(3) - 6(4) = ____ 9 - 24 = -15 ; thats our new number, -15 3x -6y = -15
anonymous
  • anonymous
nooooooooo ok thats wat i was trying to type
amistre64
  • amistre64
:) typing and mathing are not compatible lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok im starting to kinda get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
im figuring that out
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so now that we have this new equation how do i put it into slope intercept form
amistre64
  • amistre64
slope intercept means move it all over to one side except for a y
anonymous
  • anonymous
right
amistre64
  • amistre64
3x -6y = -15 ; -3x from both sides -6y = -3x -15 ; multiply it all by -1 6y = 3x +15 ; divide both sides by 6 y = (3/6)x + 15/6 ; reduce fractions y = (1/2)x + 5/2

  • anonymous
where did u get 1 to multiply it by
anonymous
  • anonymous
-1 i mean
amistre64
  • amistre64
I could have used 128 and it would have changed nothing of the value.... but that seemed excessive lol
amistre64
  • amistre64
tell me does: 3 = 3?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok...so it doesnt matter wat u multiply it by yes
amistre64
  • amistre64
since 3=3 can we multiply at all by 4 and get a true result? 3=3 [4] 12 = 12 ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
um yes
amistre64
  • amistre64
then it really doesnt matter "where" I got it from, cause the results are the same regardless right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i see now
amistre64
  • amistre64
I choose it because its useful to me , thats all.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
amistre64
  • amistre64
I wanted to clear out the negatives; and used 1 to keep the number looking the same
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok
amistre64
  • amistre64
-3x = -14 ; if we multiply it all by -1, we clear out the negative signs 3x = 14 ; now we have a prettier equation to work with and it still has the same value
anonymous
  • anonymous
when i look at this its like another language i cant understand.
amistre64
  • amistre64
:) thats cause math had to invent new symbols to express itself
amistre64
  • amistre64
the only place you see 1+1 is on paper lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
im glad that there are people who can understand it
amistre64
  • amistre64
me too ;)
anonymous
  • anonymous
im so mathematically challenged its not even funny
anonymous
  • anonymous
the fact that this class is partly online doesnt help either
amistre64
  • amistre64
im sure you mean doing it on paper; math is something you do all the time, its just that when we try to define it so that we can discuss it, people get wierded out
anonymous
  • anonymous
its called hawkins courseware. it doesnt explain it very clearly
amistre64
  • amistre64
i tried an online course once, had to drop it cause my car broke and couldnt afford books afterwards, but id much rather sit in a class
anonymous
  • anonymous
i can do english or history online but im not so sure i can do this algebra
amistre64
  • amistre64
:) algebra is fine
anonymous
  • anonymous
i hope one day i will think that way...lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks for your help
