Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes As for the reasons 2 to 5, it's been too many years since I've had to justify those steps, so I don't remember the exact names of each property. They should be in your notes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, sorry, it's too far in my memory. You should check in your notes or manual, the definition of each property should be there and it'll help you associate the properties (reasons) with the statements

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have the following Statments: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) 3) 4) 5) So what is given here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ie, what is the original problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think that what you gave me should be flipped around like x=15 should be number five because I think its a whole problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The given is 3(x4)=33 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good so that goes in statement 1) like this Statments: 1) 3(x4)=33 2) 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) 3) 4) 5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have 2 options, we can either divide or distribute, but we're forced to distribute because there is no option that has x4 = 11 (which would indicate division)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so this means we then get Statments: 1) 3(x4)=33 2) 3x  12 = 33 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) Distributive Property 3) 4) 5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0fir statments wouldnt it be 3) 3x+0=45 4) 3x=45 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Statements: 1) 3(x4)=33 2) 3x  12 = 33 3) 3x + 0 = 45 4) 3x = 45 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) Distributive Property 3) 4) 5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now we just need 3 reasons for the last 3 statements

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then for reasons it would be 3) Subtraction Property of Equality 4)Additive Identity 5)Division Property of Equality right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x  12 = 33 3x  12+12 = 33+12 ... Add 12 to both sides using the additive property of equality 3x + 0 = 45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you got it Statements: 1) 3(x4)=33 2) 3x  12 = 33 3) 3x + 0 = 45 4) 3x = 45 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) Distributive Property 3) Addition Property of Equality 4) Additive Identity 5) Division Property of Equality

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay i have something that you could correct, will you check? 1) 5(x + 3) + 9 = 59 Given 2) 5x + 15 + 9 = 59 Distributive property 3) 5x + 24 = 59 additions property of equality 4) 5x + 0 = 35 subtraction property of equality 5) 5x = 35 addative identity 6) x = 7 division property of equality r these right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is there a choice that says "combine like terms"? That's the most accurate description of what is going on in #3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here are the choices A. Reflexive Property B. Symmetric Property C. Transitive Property D. Addition Property of Equality E. Subtraction Property of Equality F. Multiplication Property of Equality G. Division Property of Equality H. Substitution Property I. Additive Identity J. Multiplicative Identity K. Commutative Property L. Associative Property M. Distributive Property N. Given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, I guess the substitution property fits because you replace 15+9 with 24 and you can legally do this because 15+9 = 24

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1usually though, you'll just say "combine like terms" if you go from 15+9 to 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 is the subtraction (not substitution) property of equality

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah that's what I would do given these options

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1personally, I'd say "combine like terms" since it fits better, but can't do that here
