## tarachery 3 years ago 4-d=-(d-4)

1. tarachery

it looks like that in the book

2. melbel

Alright, start by distributing that - sign. What does the problem look like after doing that?

3. Geometry_Hater

make the signs in the parentheses opposite then get isolate d

4. tarachery

wait what am i distributing..?

5. Geometry_Hater

the negative sign

6. tarachery

ohh sorry thanks kinda sloww lol

7. tarachery

i got 4-d=d+4 what do i after that

8. Geometry_Hater

Actually if the problem looks like this 4-d=-(d-4) and you distribute the negative sign (your giving it to both numbers You would end up with 4 - d = -d +4

9. Geometry_Hater

after that you need to get d by itself

10. tarachery

ohhso in order to get d by itself do i subtract d from the both sides or noo..?

11. tarachery

ohh so*

12. Geometry_Hater

yes you subtract 4 from both sides

13. tarachery

thanks

14. tarachery

i got 0=d did i do it correctly..?

15. Geometry_Hater

Yeah everything kinda cancelled out

16. tarachery

yeah thanks a lot
