    okay, the first one. what you want to do get the b's on one side and get the other numbers to the other side.

    not yet, I'll give you a little push: to move a number onto a different side to have to cancel it out. To do this you do the opposite of what the number is, like if it is positive you subtract it and move it to the other side you want to put it.|dw:1432840714480:dw|
