Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are solving for x right?

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0check your answer: x=14 x/7 8 = (14)/7 8 =28 =10

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no no you can't do that when x/7 no

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whenever you see / it means divide

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so therefore we x divided by 7

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, i know, when you change sides, it becomes mutiplying

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but you have to change sides with addition (or subtraction first before you can change sides with division)

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it should be 7x=14

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no it's divided here so that can not happen

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anytime you have something divided by something you times it

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, let's do this one for clarity.......1n/5=12

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1subtract 1 from both sides...

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should have n/5 =11

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1guys if you are doing this right than have X=??

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0gr8! just make sure you don't get confused with the signs

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh I see what you are doing now, I go step by step that is why I was thrown off by what you did

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1subtract 3 from both sides

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and you can always check your answers by substituting x=? in you equation

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is 10 divided by 6?

erinhass
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1something isn't right, that is not one of my answwer choices

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.110 goes into 2 five and 2 goes into 6 3 so the answer is 5/3

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well your steps are all correct...

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I didn't have the lowest denominator

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0usually the answers are in simplest form, so simplify your fractions

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what choices do you have?

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Tiffany I am so sorry about this, I was trying to walk through the steps here so you could ask questions. if you have this I will go

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have 5/3 as an answer

erinhass
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, but godorovg came up with 5/3 and I have that as an answer choice

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I need help with this one 0=1/6y+8=

erinhass
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1subtract 8 from both sides

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can I help here, this problem you are making it harder than it has be

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because the variable is in the denominator, therefore we have to switch it to the other side

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08=1/6y 8(6y)=1/6y times 6y

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you multiply both sides with 6y

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that is right, although when you first start this collect all a like terms and move then to one side and than times through the number being divided

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay let us take this one x/78=10 now here is how I would do this First take the 8 and add 8 to the 10 so now we have this x/7=10+8 than take this and do the sub to get 2 so now we have x/7=2 once you have than take the seven ant times to the two so now we have X= 14 like that

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiply both sides by 1/6?

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you multiply both sides with 6y

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but it is 1/6 not just six

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it should be y=1/48

erinhass
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh yes, because it was a 8

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since: 1/6y =8 1/(6 times8) =y so, y=1/48

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes it that is the y=1/48

erinhass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no not to just explore, it falls under the job market here stinks and the education system is messed up for kids, although I don't have any/

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm a victim under the education system in hong kong :(

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah i have heard about that as well. I am a math person that you can graphs in my head and will be studying Engineering Physics soon

godorovg

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:) good for you, sometimes i do that , and miss steps in exams, got a b instead of a, frustrating

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, that is why I tell all people that i work step by step in that way you can go back to see what is wrong.

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, i know, that's why i have to be extra careful when i'm doing my exams. And i do tutoring, helps a lot with my presentation skills

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it drives me nuts sometimes on here when I see people skipping around. that is just plain doesn't make sense to me

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sometimes people skip unintentionally, you know, they calculate in their head, and skipped a few steps, sometimes they don't notice it.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes true and may be this is something I will have to deal with, still I can not understand why skip steps what does that prove?

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i personally think if one is confident with that particular question, and skipping a little steps is alright, just don't skip major ones, step on scrap papers, yes you can skip, but steps in exams, no.

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i just tell myself be considerate, and help the techer go through the papers as smoothly as possible, work hard for years just to make sure i won't skip anything.

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u too.:), and thx.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is what I try to do here, only that I want the person I am helping to tell what they know and I help from that point

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't just do the work for them..

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, sorry about that , will work hard for that, for me it's kind of harder to explain when not face to face

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, I can how it could be hard for you, but if you want sometime I can give you tips on to do things a little better only if you want tips

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, of course, pls do, i'm all ears :)

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay first what type of math do you help with this mostly?

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0algebra, calculas, and the basics, just high school stuff.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay with all these subjects, you need to get the student in which you are helping to tell what they need help with.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1than before you do any of the work have them show you what they know about that problem already and ask to see what they are having trouble with

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1than once the it is clear, work the problem by typing it out in words and than draw it like you were doing. In the typing step by step always so the student can see what is happening where

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sometimes it won't matter if draw the problem if student doesn't get what is going on. So that is why I type it out in all steps

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, i find that if students can figure out the problem themselves, it has a greater impression on them

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is always my goal as well.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example this x/78=10 the student wasn't getting it the whole thing that is why I typed out the steps to show that they are making it too hard.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also to get the student to ask questions as well

tiffanymak1996
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, interaction helps.

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A must in math, because you and the student have to be involved in order to teach

godorovg
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also just know you won't be there when they are tested. so have the student do the work and you just guide them

godorovg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1unless they just not getting it.

tiffanymak1996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0absolutly right, are you like, a teacher?
