This one's really confusing!

- theEric

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

- icalibear

x is 112?

- icalibear

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

- theEric

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

- 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.

- icalibear

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

- theEric

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

- 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?

- icalibear

seven times* ahh i confused myself nevermind .-.

- 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.

- 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.

- icalibear

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

- icalibear

y would be 17?

- icalibear

:P

- theEric

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

- icalibear

y is 17 :P

- theEric

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

- theEric

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

- theEric

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

- 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?

- theEric

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

- 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

- theEric

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

- 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

- theEric

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

- icalibear

|dw:1355285881267:dw|

- icalibear

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

- 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

- icalibear

c not d. ahh i cannot type.

- 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.

- icalibear

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

- icalibear

thanks for helping ! :P

- theEric

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

- icalibear

Yep!

- theEric

My pleasure! Take care!

- icalibear

You too!

- theEric

Thank you!
