14=86r 8 8 _________ 6=6r /6 /6 ________ r=1
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
do you understand the steps?
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok you have to isolate the variable so basically get the the variable on one side with the numbers on the other side 14=86r 8 8 ________ 6=6r (you would subtract 8 from each side because you have to the the oppisate because 8 is positive on the right side and you want to get the eight on the right side so far do you understand?

you have to get the eight on the left side sorry mistype

omg i get it now... thanksss much!!!

do you need me to finish exaplining the steps or do you got it from there? and your welcome:)

i got it from here but u were awesome help... my teacher should just say it like how you say it... lol!
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but wait... what if it was addition... do i add 8 to both sides
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
lol yeah teachers can get quite frustrating with that...that is why i use the internet if it confuses me instead of asking for help because you can find much simpler explanations if you look in the right place glad i could help:)

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no you would subtract you would do the opposite of
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but we subtracted just now ... thats not the opposite

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
14=86r 8 8 ok which side are we trying to get the eight to in this equation?
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes and since the eight on the right side is positive you would do the opposite because you want to get rid of it from the right side which would mean cancel it out so 88=0 right? that would then mean there would be a 0 on the right side and a zero does not mean anything in this particular equation so you would get rid of it
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
then we get 6=6r make sure you remember to keep the subtraction sign which turns into a negative sign because you did not cancel it out yet

the reason why i am asking in because of this eqaution here... 9+4n=59
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
which you like me to work through this equation too with you so you understand more
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i was going to add 9 to both sides
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
9+4n=59 9 9 __________ 4n=68 ok we would subtract 9 from both sides because now in this one we have to get rid of the nine on the left side so 99=0 right. The main thing in these types of equations is simplifying and canceling out numbers. Understand this part?
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
im not to sure if i do... are u saying the 9 is subtracting because its a positive number?
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes we have to do the opposite in that step but once you get to where it would be for example 4n=8 or 8n=16 you would just divide by the regular number like 4n=8 /4 /4 n=2 03 8n=16 /8 /8 n=2
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
those are just examples have nothing to do with the problem we are doing now btw
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now for the next step in the problem we are working on so that leaves us with 4n=68 /4 /4 _________ n=17 Now we divide four on both sides to get the 4 off of the variable because division un does multiplication
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay so if a number we trying to get rid of is negative... do we add it to the other side ... do we subtract all the time
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
if the number is negative we add if it is positive we subtract but remember that only goes for addition and subtraction
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what do you mean by that only goes for A and S
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
as i showed in the examples: 4n=8 /4 /4 n=3 or another example 5n=10 /5 /5 n=2 it only work for s and a because usually in m and d the numbers are next to variables which mean 1 times a if it is 1a and i don't why but that is just how it is :p

okay... tell me if you are tired of me and want to leave...

i have a hard one though

lol its fine i have my own homework to stay up to do because i take all online classes so i mostly do my work at night so anyways what the next problem :)

3412n=58 wtf is this...

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
lol now those are absolute value equations do you know what absolute value means?

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
im sorry... idk why i typed it weird... those are actually fractiopns... lol...
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh lol well then they are not absolute value equations they are normal equations still
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the problem is 3/41/2n=5/8 right
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i guess u can say that

yes... three forths  one halfs...

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what grade are u in tho
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok basically the easiest way to do this is change all the denominators the same

omg... im in the 11... (shaking my head) i feel so under educated

lol its a fine im a year ahead in math so that might be why im in algebra 2

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
idk if i see all of it... how did u get 8
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it doesn't matter if you change the fractions because eventually they allsimplify down to the same thing and makes sure both the top and bottom are in times by the same number for example in 3/4 i times it by two because you want the bottom number a 8 so i times it by 2 so two times 3 is six and 4 times 2 is 8 andddd i was explaining by the way
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the easiest way is pick a number that all of the denominators can turn into in this case it would be 8
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ohhh like the leas common denominator!!! i just kinda figured it out
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes good job lol :) can you guess what comes next because now it will be pretty easier just like regular numbers
 one year ago

jibranlock321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yea do u have to multipy the numerator by 2
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
nooo im not sure where you are getting the two from but hold on let me show you real wuick how to do it
 one year ago

gdogthegirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
6/84/8n=5/8 6/8 6/8 (do the opposite) ________________\ 4/8n=1/8 (simplify and keeps the subtraction sign which turns to engative cuz not canceled out yet) and then 4/8n=1/8 /4/8 /4/8 _____________ what do you think n equals ?

use this site for a fraction calculator http://www.homeschoolmath.net/worksheets/fraction_calculator.php
