you add 8 to each side of the equation
-8 + x + 8 = -24 + 8

what happens to the lefthand side? - what does it simplify to?

-8 + 8 = ?

16

no - 8 + 8 = 8 - 8 = 0

take the thermometer analogy:
|dw:1359325143283:dw|

Sorry Im lost not good at this I need a tutor plus go back to grade school.

the temperature is -8 degrees then it rises 8 degrees to give 0 degrees
8 degrees is 'added'

do you see how the diagram relates to -8 + 8 = 0 ?

the reason I added 8 to left side was so we would only have x left
-8 + 8 + x = 0 + x = x

yes I understand when you do it, but get frustrated when I try to do it my self.

OK now we have x left so then it would be X=-24+8
I will ty.

right

|dw:1359325718145:dw|

so we still add 24+8 right?

no we add 8 to minus 24 (-24)
check out the thermometer

if we add 1 to -24 that is go up 1 degrree it gets to -23 right?

and add 1 more dgree we get -22 right so what do we get to if we 8 to -24?

does that help?

so we would have -16?

if I look at your nice graft thats what I come up with.

right -16 is correct
so we get
x = -16
- though i dont think my graph is all that nice!! lol

so do I have to figure what x is yet or is that simplified enough?

no thats it x = -16
in algebra you need to get used to negative values and how to manipulate them

the solution to the equation is x = -16

I will for sure use your graft, because it makes sense to me.

OK I hope I can get use to this yikes....

ty for being patient with me :0) I need a drink now lol

OK ty so much...
