so hint: can you write 4 equations to represent this paragraph?

ok lets only use 1 variable can you alter your equations to show me that?

the equations are good though

i dont know what u mean by altering the equations to 1 variable sorry

(I just appreciate you trying) so instead of having a, b, c maybe only have b in one big eq

oh okay!
1/4b + 1/4([1/4b]+b) + b = 17
like that?

exactly can you solve for b now?

i cant seem to figure it out :/

ok let's do it together

so I am going to start by distributing the 1/4 in the second term. can you write this step for me?

do u mean 1/4b + 1/4([1/4b]+b)?
sorry im a big confused

ok give me a min and ill explain better

okay thankyou so much

http://www.educreations.com/lesson/view/for-oly-surf/7121943/?ref=link this should explain it

did that help?

thankyou yes it did, but when i figured out 25/16b=17, i got b=10.88
is that right?

sorry i just saw the end of the video, what do u mean by plug it in for a and c?

ok h/o I'll redo the problem because you're right it doesn't make sense

okay thankyou so much appreciate it

ok I redid it and got the same answer are you sure you copied the problem correctly?

what 3 digit number did u get?

You can't get one, thats the problem lol

yeah haha thought so! one sec il check if i wrote it correctly

if you only took the first digit it would be 213..

but it dosent equal 17 thats the problem

ok well... I think they messed up lol let me try another approach

dont worry if u cant find it thanks for the help anyway

sorry I couldn't get it... I mean that is the answer. I guarantee it but that is so odd

no worries thanks anyway

@Hoa , can you double check this for me please?

@nincompoop can you double check this for me?

z=1/4(x+y)

1/4 of 28 is 7
our first two digits in 287 is 28

OMG! formed as in put together... I'm such a nitwit usually I read formed as add

I thought I was going to embarrass myself in front of youâ€¦. I was sweating bullets (lol's)
