Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would x0.013=636 be? would you just add 0.013 to both sides?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'd be more than happy to verify your actual answer if you want to post it. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Sorry, that's incorrect. How exactly did you get that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06.36+0.013 than put in the negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Oh, in your original problem you didn't have a decimal after the 6. See a few posts up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That said, it's still not exactly right by my calculation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You can't put in the negative after the fact. I get: 6.36 + 0.013 = 6.347

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Ok, so first thing is first. When negative numbers are involved, order matters.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So, you can't just add 0.013 to positive 6.36. It won't get you the same answer. However, if you wanted to look at it as normal subtraction, you could do it this way: 6.36 + 0.013 =  (6.36  0.013)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3By pulling the negative out of the equation you reverse all the signs. That makes 6.36 positive, and 0.013 negative. And then it becomes a subtraction problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The reason this works is because of how the numbers are organized. I'm sure you've need the number line before. Looks something like: ... 2 ... 1 ... 0 ... 1 ... 2 ... And then on and on in both directions. When we're adding a positive number to a negative number, we're moving closer to 0. So the actual "number part" should get smaller. If it doesn't something has gone wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't get it so what would be the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3x = 6.347 is the answer. You were right about what you should do to find X, you just did your addition incorrectly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you draw the addition?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Sure I can do that. But after that I'll need to leave.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3This is how you set it up: dw:1327285297432:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Then you'll need to change it to subtraction to have this format mate sense, I think.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So, to do that you'll end up with: dw:1327285440614:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Then, you'll just need to do the subtraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Excellent. Feel free to continue posting questions, and keep at it. If imranmeah91 or myininaya or most of the other high level users know you really want to learn, they will help. If they don't see your questions after a few minutes, go into the chat rooms (the green tabs at the bottom) and feel free to try and get their attention there. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0TY! and to clarify on the previous issue i was just wanting to help people not spam the site

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I understand. :) But for future reference, if you need attention try to talk to people in the chat. And sometimes people just aren't online when you need them. Come back later and try to find them in the chat then! Also, with regard to suspensions  for future reference if you get suspended again just wait it out. If you keep coming back with multiple accounts we have to block you from the site and prevent you from signing up. (Which I hate having to do.) Best of luck!
