can u please explane no direct answer

- tkhunny

What do you suppose we might do first?

- anonymous

Q.10(1+3b)+15b=-20

- tkhunny

Okay, writing the problem down is a good first step. Now what? Are we solving for b? You had better get all the 'b's on one side of the equation.

- anonymous

no

- tkhunny

... and everything else on the other side.

- anonymous

so do u *

- tkhunny

"no" what? We're not solving for b? I guess we'll need a problem statement. What are we doing?

- anonymous

we are doing distribute ,combine and solve

- tkhunny

This is why you need to produce the ENTIRE problem statement and SHOW some work of your own. MUCH confusion can be avoided.
Solve for what?

- tkhunny

What's preventing your from doing that? Show the distributive property...
10(1+3b) = ??
Go!

- anonymous

40 becuase 1+3=4*10=40

- tkhunny

Where did he b go?
Please demonstrate the distributive property. Do NOT try to solve the whole problem.
10(1+3b) = ??

- anonymous

ok so first u solve the (1+3b) frist

- Rushwr

10(1+3b) + 15b= -20
Resolve the bracket
10+30b + 15b= -20

- anonymous

so i just add

- Rushwr

yep !

- anonymous

how did u get 30b

- tkhunny

You still have not demonstrated the Distributive Property.
a(b+c) = ab + ac
That is what you do. Demonstrate: 10(1+3b) = ??

- Rushwr

10*3b = 30b

- anonymous

what did u do with the 1

- Rushwr

1*10 = 10

- anonymous

so it is 55

- anonymous

@Rushwr am i right

- Rushwr

nop

- tkhunny

lime. You're not listening. SHOW us how to apply the distributive property. Stop trying to jump to the end of the problem.

- anonymous

ok so tell me what i have to slove frist i need to know becuase ihave 6 to do befor i go to bed

- Rushwr

it's like this
10(1+3b) = 10 x 1+ 10 x 3b = 10 + 30b
now put it on to the equation
10+30b+15b = -20
From now onward you have to go in the normal method.

- anonymous

what is the normal method just adding

- Rushwr

yep

- Rushwr

u can only add the same type of numbers

- anonymous

sorry if i am giving u a hard time

- Rushwr

no no just go ahead !

- tkhunny

You should find the time to practice ONLY the Distributive Property. It will help you constantly if you are not struggling with it.

- anonymous

sorry if it is wrong i got 55

- anonymous

is it 35

- Rushwr

okai now see
10+30b+15b = -20 right?
now u add up the b parts
10+45b = -20 right?
now take that 10 to the other side so we cann add -20 and 10
45b= -20-10
45b= -30
so b = -30/45 = -2/3 got it ?

- anonymous

got it

- Rushwr

Awesome !!!!!!! ^_^

- anonymous

are we done

- Rushwr

yes. so if u want to simplify it more
divide -2 by 3 and u will get a value like -0.666

- anonymous

thank so much
