S1) S S2) G S3) O S4) L S5) C those are the steps to isolate and find the value of x.

so those are the stetments right?

Yes 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

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
alright, could you give me the reasons?

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that match those statments u just gve me above?
 one year ago

AlexULBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no, 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

We have the following Statments: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) 3) 4) 5) So what is given here?

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ie, what is the original problem?
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I think that what you gave me should be flipped around like x=15 should be number five because I think its a whole problem.

The given is 3(x4)=33 right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good 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)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
We 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)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 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)

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
fir statments wouldnt it be 3) 3x+0=45 4) 3x=45 right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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) 4) 5)

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now we just need 3 reasons for the last 3 statements
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and then for reasons it would be 3) Subtraction Property of Equality 4)Additive Identity 5)Division Property of Equality right?

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
close, #3 is wrong though

3x  12 = 33 3x  12+12 = 33+12 ... Add 12 to both sides using the additive property of equality 3x + 0 = 45

I ment Addition Property of Equality

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you 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

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay 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?

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
everything else is correct though

Is there a choice that says "combine like terms"? That's the most accurate description of what is going on in #3
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
here 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

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well, I guess the substitution property fits because you replace 15+9 with 24 and you can legally do this because 15+9 = 24
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
usually though, you'll just say "combine like terms" if you go from 15+9 to 24
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yea but wouldnt that be 4?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
4 is the subtraction (not substitution) property of equality
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so you have that right
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
pooay so for three just put substitution in?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah that's what I would do given these options
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
personally, I'd say "combine like terms" since it fits better, but can't do that here
