@theEric

3. theEric

I see!

4. icalibear

This one's really confusing!

5. theEric

Well, x I'm sure you have a hold of ;)

6. icalibear

x is 112?

7. icalibear

or ahh idk (/.\) im sorry lol D:

8. theEric

Not quite! Haha, it's cool. Learning is hard and it stinks sometimes (because you get stuff wrong) but that's learning.

9. theEric

Think bigger, first. Specifically angles! What we learned last problem is similar, actually. I won't say it outright. Might help your memory if I hold my tongue.

10. icalibear

Its the same on both sides? So 7x + 7 has to equal the same as the other side

11. theEric

Exactly! That 112 there. So that's a good place to start.

12. icalibear

So 112 minus 7 is 15, since we're going to have to add seven, so it's 15 times whatever plus 7 is 112?

13. icalibear

seven times* ahh i confused myself nevermind .-.

14. theEric

I didn't quite follow, sorry! I got a little lost. I'll fix your typo quick :P 112-7=105! Unles your zero key is broken. That would stink.

15. theEric

It's tough! I told you! I find it tough! That's why I try to help when I can. I know it stinks.

16. icalibear

Yes forgot the zero haha. So x is 15. How do i find y?

17. icalibear

y would be 17?

18. icalibear

:P

19. theEric

Yeah, I think x is 15, too! Not y, though!

20. icalibear

y is 17 :P

21. theEric

No! Y is right! why'd I say no! I'm dumb!

22. theEric

Haha, I calculated the same thing and said no. I look at y= and thought I saw something else.

23. theEric

So yeah, you're right. :) Congrats!

24. icalibear

Not dumb if you figured this out cause I couldn't! lol. so y is 17 then, right? its x = 15 and y = 17 for the answer?

25. theEric

Yeah, those are the answers I got. Thanks! But you DID figure out y.

26. icalibear

ok ^.^ thanks for helping me! I also have a proof I can't seem to solve if you can help with that too if it doesnt take too much of your time o.o

27. theEric

Nope! I'm not too busy. Proofs aren't my specialty, but I might be able to help! You can tag me again!

28. icalibear

This one probably isn't too hard, I'm probably just overthinking it, it wants me to identify the property that comes with the step so I'll just draw it :P

29. theEric

Okay! Hopefully I know the properties.... Can I make some up? :P

31. icalibear

the fraction didn't work!! lol oops ._. it's x/6. and i can name them

32. icalibear

It's either a. given b. multiplication property of equality or d. addition property of equality for the step x/6 + 2 = 15 -> x = 78

33. icalibear

c not d. ahh i cannot type.

34. theEric

Okay.. hmm.. Only one stetp to get there? I would take a couple or more. I would subtract two from both sides and the multiply both sides by 6. But also solve. So maybe these properties are more in-depth than I'd think. Or can you use more tha one? Haha! Small typo.

35. icalibear

nope you just answered it! it was multiplication haha yeah i typed it confusing im sorry

36. icalibear

thanks for helping ! :P

37. theEric

Oh, okay! :) Well, we got it right!

38. icalibear

Yep!

39. theEric

My pleasure! Take care!

40. icalibear

You too!

41. theEric

Thank you!
