-2x+4-(-6x-7) Can you further simplify this expression?

2. Emily778

No..:/

@xxferrocixx

4. bibby

Well start with the basic ideas. what is 6-(-5)?

5. bibby

inb4 he spoonfeeds you the answer and gets the medal

6. bibby

subtracting a negative makes it positive\[-2x+4-(-6x-7)=-2x+4--6x--7\] if you want to visualize it like that. 2 -s become a +

7. Emily778

I need to be spoon fed. I'm just a baby, bibby.

8. bibby

I don't always get talked into roleplay this easily babe

9. bibby

literally just replace the two minuses with a plus sign and then simplify the expression lol

10. Emily778

Um.. Wow. I wasn't roleplaying, pervert.

11. bibby

It's called comedy. Settle down and bear with me if you want me to do your homework dear

12. Emily778

Um, I wasn't asking you to do my homework @bibby

13. bibby

You're failing at basic pattern matching. You're not responding to my math. You're asking me to do your homework.\[−2x+4−−6x−−7\] \[−2x+4+6x+7\]simplify that ^

If you are going to be rude, you can go away or I can get a moderator involved.

15. bibby

Get a moderator involved. I'm not here to do your homework. I've given you the answer. Go tag every last moderator you can.

16. Emily778

Alrighty than. Go away now. :)
