Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1transpose 6 to the other side so 6 + 16 = d Add like terms 10 = d d=10 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So is this what you are asking?:\[\frac{ b3 }{ 5 }=15\]

kewlgeek555

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay, so really this is the same thing as being this:\[(b3)\div5=15\]Now, like I said before  you have to work backwards. Do PEMDAS backwards. SADMEP. So if you do it correctly, it would come out b=78

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is what I did: (15 * 5) + 3 = b = 78

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Or, if you want to me to be more specific: (b  3) / 5 = 15 (15 * 5) + 3 = b 75 + 3 = b 78 = b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[10=\frac{ 5+2 }{ 5 }\]\[10=(5+2)\div5\]\[(10\times5)5\]\[505\]\[z=55\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I got 16, but based on my special calculator it is 4, so the answer is 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I can't because when I tried to do it I actually did it wrong and checked my work with my special calculator and it said I was wrong so...let me see.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah, I can't seem to figure out how I got that one wrong. :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm thinking I have to multiply 8p and 9p since they are like terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then it becomes 13 = 7  3 and then 72  3 which becomes 75 then multiply 13 and 75 giving me 975 hmm that seems way too high

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is what I thought: 13 = 8p  3 + 9p I combine the like terms, which are 8p and 9p by adding 9 to 8 (because you always keep the sign before the number with the number), making the equation 13 = 1p  3. From there I go to (13 + 3) / 1 Then 16 / 1 And 16 = p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2But hey, if you have to show your work then if you put that then you'll be at least get 50% credit for trying to solve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplifying 13 = 9p + 13 + 9p Reorder the terms: 13 = 13 + 9p + 9p Combine like terms: 9p + 9p = 0 13 = 13 + 0 13 = 13 Add '13' to each side of the equation. 13 + 13 = 13 + 13 Combine like terms: 13 + 13 = 0 0 = 13 + 13 Combine like terms: 13 + 13 = 0 0 = 0 Solving 0 = 0 Couldn't find a variable to solve for. This equation is an identity, all real numbers are solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's probably why you're getting two different answers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Wow. I am actually about to leave my computer. Let me try my fastest. Okay, instead of 13 = 13 + 9p + 9p, I would do 13 = 9p + 9p + 13. Anywho, the next step would be combining like terms which would be 9 + 9 = 0p. 13 = 0p + 13. 13  13 = 0. 0 / 0 = p = ERROR.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks ! 10 = 5 + z over 5, the answer is actually 45 not 55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually no. since it's a negative 55 u would do the opposite and add not subtract.

Firejay5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it's wrong \[\frac{ z + 5 }{ 5 } = 10\]

Firejay5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to multiply 5 to both sides to cancel out the denominator 10 * 5 = 50; then you have z + 5 = 50; substract 5 from both sides and you get z = 45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did this stuff in Algebra II you have to get the denominator to cancel out by multiplying

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plug 55 back into the regular equation and you will get 10 not 10
