Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0obviously the x2 is over the 4 I just dunno how to write that on here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is T just another variable, or what? It should be 4((T1)/5)+2=x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0whoa how did you get that???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okayyy. So you have the T=whatever, right. You know that if you subtract one from both sides you're effectively doing nothing, right? So it becomes T1=4(x2)/5 Then you can divide both sides by 5 to rid yourself of the 5 on the x's side. That gives you (T1)/5)=4(x2) then you multiply both sides by 4. and you get 4(T1)/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh did I, that was probably a typo. I'll type it out in full. Give me a second.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0T=5((x−2)/4)+1 T1=5((x−2)/4) (T1)/5=((x−2)/4) 4(T1)/5=x2 (4(T1)/5)2=x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm just unsure what you don't understand :) sorry, if you still don't get it I'll try again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well why dont you multiply 5 into (x2) to = 5x10?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You do. Except that's expanding the equation and it would make it harder to work with. If you did that you'd have to then do 5x/410/4+1=T 5x6/4=T 5x=T+3/2 x=(T+3/2)/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both should be correct... I think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did the 4 go under the 5x? shouldnt it be 5x10 all over 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah. 4x/410/4. I just split it into two fractions to make it more malleable. Math is so hard to explain typing ):
