1. Geometry_Hater

get g by itself First we need to distribute that 4|dw:1349128157242:dw|

2. Geometry_Hater

what would we get from this?

3. jeanfelix

to be honest i have no idea

4. Tahmina

you distribute the 4 or use foil method

5. jeanfelix

ya it -20+12g

6. jeanfelix

so dat mean 5g+-20+12g=1-g

7. Geometry_Hater

Yeah ok so we now have 5g+-20 +12g=1-g Now we need to get the gs all on one side

8. Geometry_Hater

So combine the 5g and 12g together then add 1 g from the other side|dw:1349128548960:dw|

9. jeanfelix

so -12 by 5

10. Geometry_Hater

18g

11. Geometry_Hater

12 isnt negative

12. jeanfelix

wat yhu mean 18 dont you hav to sub 12 by 5

13. Geometry_Hater

No i combined like terms so 5g + 12 g = 17g Plus i added the g from the other side to make it 18g

14. jeanfelix

but yhu forgot about the 20 boo

15. jeanfelix

16. Geometry_Hater

-20 isnt a like term so i ignored that for now

17. Geometry_Hater

Now its 18g - 20 = 1

18. jeanfelix

okk

19. Geometry_Hater

So now we add 20 to the other side giving us 18g = 21

20. Geometry_Hater

Now divide|dw:1349128960636:dw| So now g = something

21. jeanfelix

so it 1.16

22. Geometry_Hater

yes g = 1.16 repeating

23. jeanfelix

thank you

24. Geometry_Hater

No problem

25. jeanfelix

you so nice
