@surdawi

7. ramirokool

is that it

8. ramirokool

@surdawi -17/2

9. ramirokool

Right

10. ramirokool

@brinethery is -17/2 the answer for this question?

11. geerky42

Well, I got -2.

12. brinethery

I'm not going to be of much help until you're willing to understand the process.

13. ramirokool

The answer is -2 that right!

14. Dido525

Do you know HOW to solve for x?

15. surdawi

@geerky42 @Dido525 dont give answers

16. Dido525

Sorry.

17. brinethery

I don't think he knows, but I'm perfectly willing to teach him.

18. Dido525

I am willing to teach him too...

19. geerky42

Just like surdawi said, multiply both sides by 4 to make it easier to find the value of x.

20. geerky42

@surdawi It's too late...

21. brinethery

Step 1: get a common denominator for all terms. Step 2: combine x-terms, and combine number terms. Step 3: get all x-terms on the left side, get all number terms on the right.

His mother is going to yell at him after he fails his algebra test.

24. Dido525

As @brinethery said, if you can't do questions like this you won't have a easy time at calculus...

25. brinethery

He'll learn eventually that his strategy won't work

He needs to go back to the basics before he does this. All the building blocks for this stuff are so important.
