algebra 5y-6=8y+6

- anonymous

its so simple
5y-8y=12
-3y=12
y=-4

- anonymous

Does that make sense? So he took the 5y minus the 8y and he got 12y

- anonymous

thank you but i am still confused how do you get 12

- anonymous

- anonymous

add 6 on both the side as the result on hand +6-6 would be cancel and other side +6+6 add to give 12

- anonymous

thank you for showing me! i am going to take a minute to understand it because i have more. if i need more help can i ask again

- anonymous

Sure take as much time as you need! :)

i see where you got the 12 in that equation. my next one has two different numbers on each end where the 6 would have been . 4a-10=3a-1

- anonymous

same here as we done in previous one
4a-10=3a-1
add +10 on the sides we get'
4a-10+10=3a-1+10 now'
-10+10=0 nd
-1+10=9
4a=3a+9
again'subtract -3a on both sides
4a-3a=3a-3a+9 we get'
a=9 becoz 3a-3a=0

- mysesshou

4a-10=3a-1
The idea is to get 'a' by itself.
First, let's put the "10" and the "1" numbers on the same side.
so, add 10 to both sides.
4a-10 = 3a-1
+10 +10
which gives
4a= 3a-1+10
simplified to:
4a= 3a+9
Now we want to moves the a's to the same side, but not the one that we moved the 10 to.
4a= 3a+9
So, let's subtract 3a from both sides:
4a= 3a+9
-3a -3a
4a - 3a = 9
simplifies to
a = 9
sorry, I type a little slow :)

|dw:1332448958261:dw| hope you can understand it its kind of messy

- anonymous

can you help ne with this equation 7b-5=5b-7

- mysesshou

Yes, that works. Good to show where the 3a cancels and the 10 cancels

- anonymous

myri u have 2 try this

- mysesshou

Myri, how about try it first, using similar methods, and we'll tell you if it is right? :)

- mysesshou

Ok, I get b = -1

- anonymous

thats what i got both times i tried

- mysesshou

Then I guess you did it ! congrats :)

- anonymous

i have 2 more equations that i am going to figure out. then can i ask if the answer is right

- mysesshou

Ok, send them, I'll send the final result for you to check your work with :)

- anonymous

thank you

- anonymous

im confused about 6y-17=_3-y

- mysesshou

i'll assume it is -3
6y-17=-3-y
add 17
6y=-3-y+17
6y=-y+14
ok so far?

- anonymous

|dw:1332450241589:dw|

- mysesshou

then,
add y
6y+y=14
7y = 14
y=2
Blossom_red's method works too :)

- anonymous

thank you

- anonymous

is 2r+10=18-2r r=2

- mysesshou

Yep, that is what I get :)

- anonymous

thank you for the help i am done if i need help again can i ask you and thank you again

- anonymous

|dw:1332450756402:dw|
Yes it does equal 2
Good Job :)

- mysesshou

You can check your work by plugging the number you end up with back into the equation
Substitute the r for the 2:
2r+10=18-2r
2(2)+10=18-2(2)
4+10=18-4
14=14 = true, so it was right :)
Sure ! :)

- anonymous

thank you blossom_red and thats a cool way to check work i have to go now but thank you again

- mysesshou

welcome, bye ;)

- anonymous

you're welcome
