What do you think

- anonymous

i think the answer is number 1

- anonymous

2(q-10)

- ryanwhite499

Hmmmm... hold on

- anonymous

i see now it is B 10(q-20)

- ryanwhite499

Yes ...

- ryanwhite499

Oh yes that is correct 10q-20=0
10q=20
q=20/10=2

- anonymous

10(q-20)
If you distribute the 10, will you get the original?

- anonymous

what about this math problem:
Simplify and determine the coefficient of (negative 2/3x)(3y)(-2x)

- anonymous

@Worior9131 for your original problem, did you check the distribution to make sure it worked?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

really? cuz 10*20 = 200

- anonymous

the other person said i was correct

- anonymous

the other person was solving an equation.
Your problem isn't an equation. It's asking you to factor/reverse distribute

- anonymous

it is asking for the equivalent not what is = to 20

- anonymous

equivalent means equal, so it has to equal 10q + 20 when you distribute

- ryanwhite499

@peachpi she is talking about this problem. What are you talking about?

- ryanwhite499

Or he

- anonymous

sorry 10q-20

- anonymous

i am a he (Acmed voice)

- anonymous

\[10q-20 \neq 10(q-20)\]

- ryanwhite499

Thats not on of his options @peachpi

- ryanwhite499

He answered that correctly. He said it was B

- ryanwhite499

Its correct

- anonymous

you guys kill me stressing out about the options. LEARN THE MATH, and then you'll be able to see the correct option, which isn't B

- anonymous

10q - 200 is not the original expression, so these are not equivalent

- ryanwhite499

@Worior9131 . Please just listen to me. Instead of going through this... your answer is correct. If you have anymore question just tag me

- anonymous

when you factor you have to divide both terms in parentheses by the gcf|dw:1441804305214:dw|

- anonymous

it is asking for what i the closest to the original expression and B is the closest because it is basically the expression but flipped around

- anonymous

equivalent does not mean closest.
equivalent means equal

- ryanwhite499

Yes that's what I'm saying

- anonymous

You do not want to make me angry because i am a classic online troll and you don't want to make a troll angry!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- ryanwhite499

@peachpi is giving you options thats not on here

- anonymous

what are you talking about, that's the third option

- ryanwhite499

10q - 200 is not one of them

- ryanwhite499

Were talking about B here... ok

- anonymous

@ryanwhite499 exactly! B = 10q-200, so that can't be the answer

- ryanwhite499

Yes correct! So what is the answer @peachpi

- anonymous

10(q-2)|dw:1441804531785:dw|

- anonymous

no

- anonymous

lmao did you just threaten to troll me?
keyboard courage is real

- ryanwhite499

Ok you know what. Maybe I'm wrong maybe I'm right. Who ever you go with @Worior9131 is not on me

- ryanwhite499

I'm not saying I'm wrong tho @Worior9131

- anonymous

you don't have to, I said it

- ryanwhite499

Ok. Sure thing. Thanks. Not everyone can be right. Just know that @peachpi

- anonymous

I know I'm not always right. I never claimed to be, but I don't launch an irrational defense when I'm wrong, I try to learn from it.

- anonymous

and @peachpi you just made a troll angry but i put all the anger out on another problem i had

- anonymous

i looked at a closed question and @peachpi is correct
