Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your other previous answer (42/2x4) was more correct. when doing simplification, it helps to.... simplify, to see what needs to be done more clearly. for most problems you don't need to do this, but later it gets helpful to think along these lines:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically im saying 42/2(x4) is the same thing as 42/2 * 1/(x4) 42/2 is pretty simple arithmetic. Once you've got that simplified, just fit that back in to the expression.. and you've got the answer. thats one of many ways to simplify things.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0indeed. you could also divide by two.dw:1332401294326:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0really the entire point is it does not matter how you simplify, as long as you are dividing or multiplying by "1", or keeping the overall expression equal. you'll never end up with an incorrect answer this way lol
