Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you add 8 to each side of the equation 8 + x + 8 = 24 + 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no  8 + 8 = 8  8 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the temperature is 8 degrees then it rises 8 degrees to give 0 degrees 8 degrees is 'added'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you see how the diagram relates to 8 + 8 = 0 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the reason I added 8 to left side was so we would only have x left 8 + 8 + x = 0 + x = x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I understand when you do it, but get frustrated when I try to do it my self.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1practice simple examples and you'll gain confidence remamber to do the same operation ( + 8) to both sides of the equation an equation is like a balance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK now we have x left so then it would be X=24+8 I will ty.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we still add 24+8 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no we add 8 to minus 24 (24) check out the thermometer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if we add 1 to 24 that is go up 1 degrree it gets to 23 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and add 1 more dgree we get 22 right so what do we get to if we 8 to 24?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we would have 16?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I look at your nice graft thats what I come up with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right 16 is correct so we get x = 16  though i dont think my graph is all that nice!! lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do I have to figure what x is yet or is that simplified enough?

cwrw238

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no thats it x = 16 in algebra you need to get used to negative values and how to manipulate them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the solution to the equation is x = 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I will for sure use your graft, because it makes sense to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ty for being patient with me :0) I need a drink now lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok remember that everything below the x ( horizontal axis) is negative also everything to left of the yaxis is negative dw:1359326605166:dw
