x=-3 you dropped the Negative sign and you only divide by 2 not -2 soo -6/2 = -3 help with more?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh sorry I dropped the negative haha oops lol you need anymore help?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
Yes please I mean I'mma try and work them out then post them n here then let you see if you get the same answer

anonymous
  • anonymous
ugh I hate fractions
anonymous
  • anonymous
hold on
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
ME TOO! I know we have to distribute.
anonymous
  • anonymous
let me go get my stupid Journal again
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait you can't divide fractions huh?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
not really I think -2/3(4x+5)= -10/3 Not sure though
anonymous
  • anonymous
show me the math
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
well, - 10/3
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
I udes a calculator for that :p
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
used*
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha well i got the same so i'd have to say yeah for that one
anonymous
  • anonymous
any more?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
|dw:1378262425168:dw| Ho to we find X now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ugh is there any without fractions that we can do 1st
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
Well, When i'm dong them I have to give Proofs so I kinda want to do them in order
anonymous
  • anonymous
hey umm I got to go back to the 2nd prob we did it wrong if it is −23(4x+5)=−103 then we can get rid of the annoying fractions (which everyone hates) by multiplying both sides by −3 and starting with 2(4x+5)=10
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got to go
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
10= - 2/3(4x+5) solve for x so confused
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Distribute
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
ok soo distribute -2/3 to (4x+5) would = - 10/3 right? I have a hard time with fractions
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
|dw:1378264810920:dw|
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
Dude im so confused...
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
All you do is distribute the -2/3 out to 4x and 5. Meaning multiply each.
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so - 8/3x + -10/3x ???
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yea :)
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
|dw:1378265117894:dw|
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
what do I do now?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Oh, no that x is only with 4x |dw:1378265256944:dw| So it's just that Now what you do is move numbers to the left, and leave x's by themselves. btw, when you have a + - you can just change it into a -.
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
I have to get rid of the fractions..... How?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Well if we wanted to turn 1/3 into 1, what would we multiply by?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
1
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
no 3
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yea, 3 :) so multiply everything by 3
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so even the 10 on the left?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup! What you do to one side you do it to the other.
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so now I have 30=24x-30x?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
30= -24x-30x
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
No no no, you multiplied it by 3 to cancel the fraction: |dw:1378265696130:dw|
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
because 8/3 is the same as (1/3)*8
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
ooohoooooohhh soo 30=-8x-10x so now add 8 to both sides?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Remember, the x was just with 4, not bother 4 and 5 So it's just 30=-8x-10
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
oh ok |dw:1378265973030:dw|
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
You can't add/subtract variables with numbers.
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
|dw:1378266129825:dw| This should make it easier
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so 40=-8x then divide by 40 so x= -1/5 OR -20?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
You divide the number with the variable: |dw:1378266378331:dw|
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
Ohh ok im use to the variable being on the left
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
So what was your final answer?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
x=-5
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup :)
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
can you help with more? I gots more fractions :'(
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
-8=1/3x+x
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Get rid of the fraction
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
multipy by 3?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup!
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so 1/3x multiplied by 3 = 1 right? so it would bee -24=1+x?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
|dw:1378266795708:dw| Don't forget that lonely x over there, and when you multiply a variable by anythingg, it stays.
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Now combine like terms
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
-24=3x?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
i think
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
*4x
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
oh yeah 3x+x and x is = to 1 soo yeah 4x -24=4x divide by 4 x=-6
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yea :)
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
3x+2(x+5)=15 how do I distribute this?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
first do 2*x then 2*5
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
2*x is 2x then 10 soo 10x?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
no, keep them separate
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so 2x and 10
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup, remember that + sign in between them
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
3x+2x+10=15
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
You know what to do from here right?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
then simplify... which would be 5x+10=15
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yea, you're getting it :) now, subtract 10 from bother sides
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
soo5x=5 after I subtract 10 from both sides
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
now finish it off!
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
divide by 5 soo x=0
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
because or does it equal 1...
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
It's 1
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Piece of cake though right? :)
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
yeahh so x- (3x-9)=-5 I need to distribute so x*3x and x*9 soo 3x-9x=-5
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
No, not the x: |dw:1378268239626:dw|
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
^Just an example btw
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
so wait how would I do this distributing step this 1 is confusing me for some reason
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
???
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
|dw:1378268745377:dw|
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
1 sec
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
soo its x-3x+9=-5?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
simplify now?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yes
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
soo -2x+9=-5?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
mhm, keep going
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
Subtract 9
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
and what do you get?
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
-2x=-14 so divide by 2 x=-2
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
divide by -2, and x=7
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
grr im stupid sometimes
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
No, you just need practice Anyways, it's kind of late here and I have my own things to finish, so good luck I'm sure ou'll be fine on the rest :)
EvonHowell
  • EvonHowell
