trying to simplify. I think it is 5x but my daughter is not happy with that!!

3. ShotGunGirl

Well you're daughter should be happy with you<3 YOu are 100% correct<3 Source:(myself) and http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=5x%2B6-6&dataset=&equal=Submit

4. Nameless

oooh thats frodo.... lol

5. ShotGunGirl

Yeah it is<3 I really like him.

6. Nameless

:)

7. diwallace

ok thank you. but now she needs more convincing! the original equation is 2(x+3)+3(x-2)

8. ShotGunGirl

Okay I'll right it down<3 Did you put it into wolfram alpha at all?

9. ShotGunGirl

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2%28x%2B3%29%2B3%28x-2%29&dataset=&equal=Submit This website is great for easier math questions<3

10. diwallace

this is all new to me. I don't know what wolfram is but i will search it!

11. ShotGunGirl

This is Wolfram Alpha http://www.wolframalpha.com/ It helps alot if you want to see a graph of an equation or you need help simplifing something<3

12. math456

5x!!

13. diwallace

thanks for wolfram alpha tip :)

14. ShotGunGirl

You're welcome<3 I don't mean to sound rude but could you possibly medal my answer?

15. diwallace

no problem

16. ShotGunGirl

Oh thank you! I'm always glad to help if have another question<3

17. diwallace

18. ShotGunGirl

Yep sure let me write it down....

19. ShotGunGirl

Actually you can put this on Wolfram Alpha too<3 To put exponents you just add a "^" before the nummber on Wolfram. So, for example, this: 6^2 is six squared. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=xy%2Bx%5E2%2Byx%2By%5E2&dataset=&equal=Submit

Combine like terms only xy and yx are the same. It is important in math to understand the process, as your child studies higher levels of math the foundation or basics will be needed. This is a good website to come to talk about math and verify solutions. Good study skills is what helps students succeed in college....
