6. lilg132

16. lilg132

17. moneybird

18. hot_cutie

your welcome although thank moneybird because i know you didnt understand my way

33. hot_cutie

34. moneybird

Remeber you can never have X as your answer since the choices are only A, B, C, and D

35. hot_cutie

ok even if X is in the problem?

36. moneybird

Well first you need to distinguish whether the question is a multiple choice type or not

37. lilg132

x represents a value x represents a number you need to work out the number

38. lilg132

not everyone finds that easy to do moneybird

39. hot_cutie

5t + 2t = 14 t= A) 1 B) 2 C) 3 D) 4

40. moneybird

59. hot_cutie

lol i keep saying 7 i don't understand what u want?

60. lilg132

61. lilg132

so what do you think 5t + 2t is

62. hot_cutie

i dont know you said its not 7??

63. lilg132

5 + 2 = 7 but what is it if i say 5t + 2t

73. hot_cutie

75. hot_cutie
