Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nah, it's fine, I'm happy to help the slopeintercept form of a line is y = mx + b, where m is the slope so let's put our two equations side by side for comparison y = mx + b y = 2x + 5 can you tell me what number matches with m?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yup! so our slope is 2 now, a parallel line will have the same slope, so the new line will also have a slope of 2 so 2 is our final answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A rectangle with a length of x  4 and a width of 8 has a perimeter of 34. What is the value of x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, the perimeter of a rectangle is 2(width+length) so we can take that information and write an equation 34 = 2(x4+8) do you know how to find the value of x from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0will i be doing cross multiply? or is that something else?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not quite, cross multiplying is when we have fractions I'll walk you through it so, we start off with 34 = 2(x4+8) we can divide both sides by 2 to get 17 = (x4+8) with me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2alright, now we can clean up the inside of the parentheses 17 = (x4+8) 17 = x + 4 can you tell me what x is now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2almost but not quite the opposite of addition is subtraction, correct? since we have 4 added to one side, we can subtract 4 from both sides to get rid of it 17  4 = x + 4  4 13 = x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, let's start by looking at the left side we can put 14 and 6 together since these are both constants (no letters attached to them( 14 + 6 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good, so we put them together to get 8 now we have 4x  8 = 12 now, since we have minus 8 on one side, we can +8 to both sides to get rid of the 8 so 12 + 8 = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yup, so now we've got 4x = 20 now divide both sides by 4, and what do you get?
