Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks like I might not be able to help after all but I can tell you that they multiply d to both sides to get thisdw:1346461339585:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not sure what is going on after that, I find all of those blanks confusing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I am supposed to fill in the blanks

precal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, I realize that but I am not following the logic to it. I am sure they are applying many algebraic properties along the way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, maybe someone else will come help you. You can always close this problem and repost it but it might help if you write it out using draw (some people will not open attachments). btw I am a girl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2alright I think I'll take my chances with the attachment since it would take me forever to write that out and it might not even be legible

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it says add \(a\) to both sides so the 3rd line would be \[ \large a+\frac{ad}{b}<a+c \]

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2where does it say add a?

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ill take that on faith for now

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is on the third line to the right

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it also says simplify

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2"Adding a to both sides and simplifying, we see that" I see but I'm not sure what to do still. What do they want me to do for the next line?

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2put a common denominator on a?

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no. just what i wrote.

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then add the fractions on the left side \[ \large \frac{ab+ad}{b}<a+c \]

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then factor \(a\) \[ \large \frac{a}{b}\cdot(b+d)<a+c \]

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Thanks I think I get it now.

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then \(b+d\) passes to the other side to divide \[ \large \frac{a}{b}<\frac{a+c}{b+d} \]

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this covers the first part :)

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is the second part different?

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not at all, try it.

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Thanks alot. I'm new. Should I keep the question open? Until I work it out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it's up to u. i'll be here for one more hour or so.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1write @ to the left of his "name". like this @znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@helder_edwin it says my lines 3(half of line 3) and 4 are wrong. I have (b+d)/b and in the last blank I have (ab+cb)/(b+d)

helder_edwin
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first two blanks (line 3) should be \(a\)

znimon
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok says my 5th and 7th blanks are wrong

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next line should be \[ \large ab+ad\qquad\text{and}\qquad a \]

helder_edwin
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next line should be \[ \large b+d\qquad\text{and}\qquad a \]

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2why isn't b+d divided by b

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u r factoring a from the denominator and just puting the dominator (b) under what u just factored

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm I don't really get it

helder_edwin
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is this \[ \large \frac{r\cdot s}{m}=\frac{r}{m}\cdot s \]

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh I get it not breaking the number into its prime factors

helder_edwin
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \[ \large \frac{ab+ad}{b}=\frac{a(b+d)}{b}=\frac{a}{b}\cdot(b+d) \]

znimon
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the final blank should be (a+c)/b+d

helder_edwin
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the next (last) line would be \[ \large \frac{a+c}{b+d} \]

helder_edwin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now do the next part

helder_edwin
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as i told u it's very similar

znimon
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2first two lines should both be c

znimon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@helder_edwin finished and all correct
