So are we solving for a then?

yes why do people keep saying that??

kk

5a+a first right

Well a is already positive on the right side, so to bring it over we would subtract it.

In other words 5a-a

ok but not just 4. it is 5 a's take away 1 a.

open study whenever i get on its always acting wierd

6a

hold on one sec i need to draw it and it wont let me i'm going to refresh the page.

|dw:1439758244788:dw|

ok, except a+a is not 0 (it is 2a)
try adding -a to both sides

7a then.

start over,
5a+11=a-13
add -a to both sides. Just write -a on both sides. can you do that ?

can you show me the steps to the answer i already know the answer its -6

of how you would you do it

can you show me in drawing of how the step would be?

you write -a on both sides , like this
5a+11 -a =a-13 - a

so its 4a?

yea sure one sec.

5a+-a=a-13a ? is that what i would do on the right side

2a?

what is
1+ -1 ?

and 2+ -2
or
3+ -3
or a+ -a
always adds up to 0

kk

yes

4a

no sorry 6a

so it is 4a?

yes. if you had 5 cows and took away 1 cow, how many cows would you have?
it works the same for a's

4a+11=-13

then subtract 11to both sides 24 so then it would be 4a=-24

it might not be obvious , by 4a/4 is just a

-6 thanks

a=-6

yes.
good job.
if you do a bunch of these problems, it will start to make sense.

thanks again. :)
