but 4 doesnt goin to 4
 one year ago

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
It does: suppose you want to check a division, e.g. 18/3=6. Then you know 18 = 6*3. Now 4/4 = ???, then 4 * ???= 4. What number is ???

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No, because 4*1=4 and not 4

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
OK, so 4/4 = 1 Now you have to do: 20x/4

I dont knoe the distributie Prop

It tells you how to get rid of the brackets! So you have to multiply 1/2 with 4 and also multiply 1/2 with 6a

how do I multiply a fraction in to a number
 one year ago

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Just forget the "" for a while. 1/2 * 4 means you have four halves. How many is that?

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
OK. Now remember that if you multiply a negative number with a positive number, the outcome is negative. So: 1/2 * 4 = ...

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Right!, now the other one...

twitchBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so for the other half it be3 the i would be left with(2 3) and my answer be 5

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You have to multiply, so 1/2 * 6a = ...

6 isn't negative that was the subtraction sign
 one year ago

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
OK, so save it for later. So: 1/2 * 6a = ...
 one year ago

twitchBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so then my equation would be(2  3a)
 one year ago

twitchBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the my answer should be 5a right
 one year ago

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No, 2 hasn't got an a with it, so you can't add it to 3a
 one year ago

ZeHanzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No, it would be 2+3a. This cannot be written shorter! If it was 2a+3a this would be 1a or a.
