Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.449=(4+9)=13 so n49=n13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah I would assume simplification . . . so just add the regular numbers like freckles did. There's only one variable. Any further simplification would require a given solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I have to ask @beckyg111 did you mean n4=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4or did you really just mean n49

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It does say n  4  9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4ok in the instructions is to just simplify right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4is that suppose to be 3x+6=3x+2+4 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you sure its not like n(4  9)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. you bring the 3 and the x down so that would look like this. 3x. The 3 is negative and the 6 is positive so the result will be negative...i think then all you do is multiply 6 and 3 (my mistake its not 24 its 18) So then you bring the 3x and add the 18 3x 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so you mean 3(x+6) which when using distributive property gives 3(x)+(3)(6) 3x+(18) 3x18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess but i have to show my work and i have to do it the way my teacher showed me http://easyk12.blogspot.com/2011/10/multiplicationrainbowmethod.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah . . . The solution 3x  18 does match with that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4nevermind I'm confused again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4like looking at that site almost thought x was a multiplication symbol here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I honestly don't think it is you. I think something is missing... because the site becky linked us too shows something completely different than problems expressed here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.43x(6) where x is a multiplication symbol 3x(6)=18

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I don't see what this has to do with n49

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4actually she wrote 3x(+6) which is just really 3x(6) again x is a multiplication symbol this is still 18 though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah I have no idea why the "rainbow method" would apply to this.
