Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c = 3A – (a – b) c = 3A – a – b<<< c = 3a + 3b + A c = 3Aab

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What is this problem anyway?! are you solving for c?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and you forgot to distribute the negative sign (ab) = a+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's how I write my A's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[A = \frac{1}{3}[(ab)+c]\] so what is the question? solve for c?!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we don't even know what the original question is besides am I right? That doesn't give any information. What is the question and what is the goal of this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0step #1 in order to find c, we have to multiply both sides by 3, what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first of all, op is your question how do I solve in terms of c? is that why we have c = your answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok then. so we have this equation \[A = \frac{1}{3}[(ab)+c]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes and we have to solve for C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so what do we do first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When I first did it I got c= a+b+ 1/3A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But it wasnt in the answer choices so I thought of the one that looked similar to it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if I was doing that problem I would distribute the 1/3 all around \[A = [(\frac{1}{3}a\frac{1}{3}b)+\frac{1}{3}c]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then I would shift the 1/3a and 1/3b to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[A \frac{1}{3}a+\frac{1}{3}b=\frac{1}{3}c\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then multiply 3 on both sides \[3Aa+b=c\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if I plug this guy back into the original equation I should have A = A or something\[A = \frac{1}{3}[(ab)+3Aa+b]\]

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[A = \frac{1}{3}[(bb)+3Aa+a]\] \[A = \frac{1}{3}[3A] \rightarrow A = \frac{3A}{3} \rightarrow A=A\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a  a and b+b cancel out I am left with 3A and I can just divide 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what are your answer choices for this problem?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c = 3A – (a – b) c = 3A – a – b c = 3a + 3b + A c = 3Aab

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought it was the second choice

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[3Aa+b=c\] it's the first choice if you distribute the negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1c = 3A – (a – b) c= 3Aa+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No wait I figured out why and how you did it thank you !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whenever there is a negative sign on the right side of the equation you have to distribute it Ex 5x(2x^2+4) 5x2x^24
