Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i understand the problem as 2/3 multiplied by N gives you the answer of 8 therefor 2/3 goes into 8 ____ times the ____ being what N= right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk.... I went to http://www.tigeralgebra.com/ and used their system and it says only one answer can be found and that is n=12. looking at how it is worked out it appears to be correct but now i am second guessing things. I only have one try with this test so I can not afford to fail it :/

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I could suggest something real quick, your equation is 2/3n = 8. If you have a calculator on you you could find that 2/3 is .6 (repeated). So .6n(repeated) = 8. Then you have to divide the .6n (repeated) by .6 to get "n" by itself. And the 8 by the .6 as well. The answer I got was 12. Sorry if this didn't help.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0brain dead atm ...lol...trying to remember the steps

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. So what you want to try and work towards is getting "z" to be alone on one side. Before you can do that though, you have to get rid of the 2 in the denominator on the left side of the equation. Do you know how to do that?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it should be 7z=7z/1=7z*2 /2 or to state it 7zequals 7z over1( or divided by1) equals 7z multiplied by2 over(or divided by)2

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite sure how you got that. There is an easier way to do it. Since the left equation is being divided by 2, to get rid of the 2, all you have to do is multiply all of the "groupings" on the right side by two. So instead of the equation [ 7z  1 / 2 = 3z  2 ] it would be 7z  1 = 6z  4 ]. See what I did. dw:1432916166225:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0LMAO.... ikr..same here and i can not remember how to screen shot...lol

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically what I did was multiplied the left side by 2 to get rid of the 2, and the right side by 2 to balance the equation.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now that you have the equation 7z 1 = 6z  4, do you know how to simplify it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@TTinSC do you understand what I did? Or are you confused

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think after simplifying it is the z=3/8 as a fraction or 0.375 as a #

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0soooo confused ... i was out sick for several weeks and i am now trying to basically cram all of this in and i do believe my brain is on overload... i swear there is smoke coming out of my ears...lol

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is not what I got. The last step is super easy. When you have the equation 7z 1 = 6z  4, what I would do is add a 1 to both sides. So now your equation is 7z = 6z  3. Then I would subtract the 6z from both sides. So z = 3. Is this a multiply choice thing or short answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. If you don't please let me know. I had missed a lot of days too and it always came back to kill me on tests. All I did was subtract, divide, and add values from each side (making sure what I did to one side I did to the other so the equation stayed balanced) and got "z" alone

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah I remember now. Standard form is when the equation goes from highest numbers (with variables) to lowest numbers, then to numbers without variables. So basically highest to lowest numbers with variables, then if no variables highest to lowest. dw:1432918595652:dw Above is an example with random numbers and variables

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know what slope intercept forms is. It is y = mx + b. So what you are trying to do is get the 4y alone on one side. (kinda like we did earlier) any ideas on what to move first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i subtract 12 from both sides and add 6x to both sides and get 4y=6x12 then divide by 4 on each side right?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. What i would do first is take the equation 4y  6x + 12 = 0 and add a 6x to both sides. dw:1432918942424:dw Now you have 4y + 12 = 6x. I would subract a 12 from both sides. dw:1432919001252:dw Now you have 4y = 6x + 12. If you notice it looks like Y = mx + b. Now, y is still not alone because of the 4, so you have to divide every term by 4. Look at this picture for help because this is tricky. dw:1432919070957:dw So now you have y = 6/4x + 12 (y = 1.5x + 12). So the slope in simplest form would be 6/4 or 1.5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was going to say this beofe but didn't. In the equation y = mx + b (or your equation y = 7x +2) the m (or 7) always equals the slope and the b (or 2) always equals the y intercept
