Confession sold 0.94 million copies less than twice the amount The Emancipation of Mimi sold. The sum of these two albums was 13.97 million copies. Determine the sales of both albums.

ok, pick one album and call it X... say Confession and label the other one Y
anonymous
  • anonymous
the sum of the sales was 13.97... of X and Y.... can you set up this equation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you do to get a sum?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Chrisblendz Can you at least give it a try!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
when you sum a list of numbers, what do you do to get the total?
anonymous
  • anonymous
All you do is step by step! What is Sum?
anonymous
  • anonymous
13.97

Suppose you shop for 2 hats red and blue. How do you find out total?
anonymous
  • anonymous
From 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
what operation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x y
anonymous
  • anonymous
Suppose red hat and blue hat are red r and blue b is
anonymous
  • anonymous
What you do with AND
anonymous
  • anonymous
x, y or r, b are operands What kind of operation to connect them together?
anonymous
  • anonymous
+*/
anonymous
  • anonymous
minus
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, now we want total, so you should choose exactly one operation!
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok it should be *
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now your first rule to memorize TOTAL means ADDITION!
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh yeah that is right
anonymous
  • anonymous
x + y= 13.97

Since "The sum of these two albums was 13.97 " Can you write the expression for me. Suppose M is Emancipation and C is Confession:
anonymous
  • anonymous
m + c=13.97
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's crystal clear with SUM now :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes thank you for taking the time to help. :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Since we have 2 variables m and c => We need 2 equations to solve!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you express "twice the amount of The Emancipation "
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Write it down for me, will you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wouldn't it be that same as sum?
anonymous
  • anonymous
What operation is it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
+
anonymous
  • anonymous
TWICE = DOUBLE => what operation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
*
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep, so twice Emancipation means ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
multiply
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mutiply what with what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
m and c
anonymous
  • anonymous
Twice means double. What number is it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
for m?
anonymous
  • anonymous
"twice the amount of The Emancipation " = 2 * M
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is it ok?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
"less than twice Emancipation " What operation for LESS?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Chrisblendz do you follow me?
anonymous
  • anonymous
minus
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep, so " 0.94 million copies less than .." is
