Reasons:
1) Given
2)
3)
4)
5)
Please match these up guys, here are the things to chose from, these reasons, have to match up right with the statments.

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

- anonymous

so those are the stetments right?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

alright, could you give me the reasons?

- anonymous

that match those statments u just gve me above?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

alrighty thanks:)

- anonymous

no problem!

- jim_thompson5910

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_thompson5910

ie, what is the original problem?

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

The given is 3(x-4)=33 right?

- jim_thompson5910

good so that goes in statement 1) like this
Statments:
1) 3(x-4)=33
2)
3)
4)
5) x = 15
Reasons:
1) Given
2)
3)
4)
5)

- jim_thompson5910

We have 2 options, we can either divide or distribute, but we're forced to distribute because there is no option that has x-4 = 11 (which would indicate division)

- jim_thompson5910

so this means we then get
Statments:
1) 3(x-4)=33
2) 3x - 12 = 33
3)
4)
5) x = 15
Reasons:
1) Given
2) Distributive Property
3)
4)
5)

- jim_thompson5910

What's next?

- anonymous

fir statments wouldnt it be
3) 3x+0=45
4) 3x=45
right?

- jim_thompson5910

good

- jim_thompson5910

Statements:
1) 3(x-4)=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_thompson5910

Now we just need 3 reasons for the last 3 statements

- anonymous

and then for reasons it would be
3) Subtraction Property of Equality
4)Additive Identity
5)Division Property of Equality
right?

- jim_thompson5910

close, #3 is wrong though

- jim_thompson5910

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

- anonymous

I ment Addition Property of Equality

- anonymous

sorry lol

- jim_thompson5910

you got it
Statements:
1) 3(x-4)=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

- anonymous

yay!!!!! lol

- jim_thompson5910

lol congrats

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

- jim_thompson5910

3 is wrong

- jim_thompson5910

everything else is correct though

- anonymous

what would three be?

- jim_thompson5910

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

- anonymous

no

- anonymous

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_thompson5910

well, 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

usually though, you'll just say "combine like terms" if you go from 15+9 to 24

- anonymous

yea but wouldnt that be 4?

- jim_thompson5910

4 is the subtraction (not substitution) property of equality

- jim_thompson5910

so you have that right

- anonymous

pooay so for three just put substitution in?

- jim_thompson5910

yeah that's what I would do given these options

- jim_thompson5910

personally, I'd say "combine like terms" since it fits better, but can't do that here

- anonymous

okay thanks so much!

- jim_thompson5910
