Equation 1: 3/4(x−12)=12
Equation 2: 3/4y−12=12
Solve each equation. Then, enter a number in each box to make this statement true.

The first thing you need to do is multiply each side by the denominator so you can get rid of it.|dw:1437491706702:dw|

- Griffindore

ok makes sence

- marihelenh

You can do the same with the second equation:|dw:1437491869576:dw|

- Griffindore

ya cause they both have 3/4 that makes complete sence

- marihelenh

Good. Did you get an answer?

- Griffindore

hold on im doing it right now

- Griffindore

|dw:1437492080749:dw|

- Griffindore

so the nsubtract 12 from each side then u get|dw:1437492189668:dw|

- Griffindore

correct??

- marihelenh

You actually have to distribute the 12.|dw:1437492350008:dw|

- marihelenh

|dw:1437492469026:dw|

- Griffindore

oh ok then u can get rid of the other 12 after ok

- Griffindore

but it wnt be a 12

- Griffindore

then the 3 becomes easier to divide

- marihelenh

What do you mean?

- Griffindore

because my way you had to divide 3 by 4

- marihelenh

When you did it, did you try and cancel out the 12s on the right side?

- Griffindore

ya both 12s

- marihelenh

That's where you went wrong, you can't cancel those out. It isn't subtraction throughout, you have to use the distributive property.|dw:1437492831341:dw|

- Griffindore

i dont understand

- marihelenh

The outside number has to be multiplied each term inside the parentheses.

- Griffindore

oh ok but dood sursly his is taking really long

- Griffindore

its been half an hour

- marihelenh

I am well aware. I have been trying to tell you to distribute. That is the only thing that is holding you up. If you would distribute, you would get the answers pretty quickly.

- Griffindore

ok

- marihelenh

I actually already gave you the x value which was the harder of the two to get.

- Griffindore

does y = 12

- marihelenh

No, y=49/16

- Griffindore

oh thats x nm

- Griffindore

thanks
