Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Back. Yes, because where i'm from, your people don't like my people. Where i'm from, your people treated my people atrociously, and as if they were subhuman. I don't attach cultural ideas to where i'm from, simply because I happen to be a particular race doesn't mean I ascribe to ideas, simply because i'm from a geographical area doesn't mean i'm consciously forced to identify with that region's politics. This is nothing about where you're from, it's that you're choosing to culturally support something that is bigoted.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Whatever. I'm just going to ignore this and walk away, but this is just a little messed up. If admins saw a profile with a nazi flag, it would be a different story. No problem. I'd be happy to help you still, but that flag makes me think of things that i'd really rather not think about.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just remember, I dont mean it in that way. I grew up around this flag, raised around rednecks, I diagree with the stuff it mkes younthink about, but honestly, I think it looks cool also, another reason why I love it . Hah.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6No problem. People grow up in certain environments, it's just that that means a whole different world to some people. I'm still a little bothered, but we're all here to learn. That being said, x: 4/3 x + 2/3 = 6. In order to find the answer, let's make all of the numbers in our problem have the same denominator, which in this case would be 3. We'll need to do this to 6, so let's take six, multiply it by 3, and then put three in the denominator, but don't simplify it. So, what would you get from this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Great. Okay, so from here we can easily add fractions that have the same denominator. Given 4/3x + 2/3 = 18/3 we can subtract 2/3rds from the right side, which gives us 4/3x = 16/3. Oh, bu the way, clarification, is this \[4\div3x \]Or\[(4/3)x\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04/3 x + 2/3 = 6\[\frac{ 4 }{ 3 }x + \frac{ 2 }{ 3 } = 6\]Subtract 2/3 from both sides. \[\frac{ 4 }{ 3 }x = 6  \frac{ 2 }{3 }\]Multiply both sides by 3. \[4x = 18  2\]\[4x = 16\]Divide both sides by 4. \[x = 16/4\] What is x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6^(...Or that, but i'm really not sure if you meant \[(4/3)x\], or if you meant \[\frac{ 4 }{ 3x }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Folks, I just want to say, well handled. Tempers ran high for a minute there, but you peacefully discussed and resolved the issues and managed to get some learning and teaching done in the process. I was here the entire time and at no point did I feel the need to step in. Huge huge props. You are an example to everyone on this site—and, indeed, to folks all over the world.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I want to echo @shadowfiend's sentiments. You both did a superb job of resolving your differences without having the entire conversation degrade into senseless drama. Well done.
