solving for A this time. I want you to try to guide me through this time. If you get stuck I will help you
|dw:1345525574506:dw| Like that?
good so far go on
If then, we isolate the 1/3a. Since 5 is being subtracted on left side, we use the opposite operation of Subtraction.
oh...this was ur question....
yes, we add 5 on both sides!:)
nw multiply by 3
you were right on right side, for left side: 1 + 5 is?
yes now what? the question is how to get A alone?
so 6 *3 = a = 18
that is right Yahoo! :)
you got it maz5tl!:)
thats it? why is it 1/a ?
No that is not right, first how do you get rid of the 1/3??
A must be lone so how does 1/a answer that??
a = 2 ?
opps, i missed that:|dw:1345526080594:dw|. make sense?
here is how to do this problem the right way. 1 = 1/3a - 5, first we are solving for A so we take the and subtract 1 from both sides that gives =1/3a-5-1 next add the two negative numbers together to get -6 so now we have =1/3a-6 next divide by 1/3 so now we have A=-6/1/3
