15-0.2b
what does the 15 mean ? (based on the info in the question)

- anonymous

i guess $

- phi

yes, the 15 is the cost of the case.
notice it is added or subtracted with
0.2b
when you have "things" that are added or subtracted, each thing is called a term

- phi

they want you to say 15 and 0.2b are the terms

- anonymous

now

- anonymous

what are the factors of each team? ______ is the only factor of the ______ term amd_____ and____ are the factors of the _____ term.

- phi

factors are things (numbers or letters) that are multiplied together

- anonymous

i just dont understand what goes in the blanks

- phi

what is being multiplied in the first term: 15
?

- anonymous

yeah

- phi

what is being multiplied ?
you see
15
do you see any thing multiplying it ?

- anonymous

no

- phi

now read this
______ is the only factor of the ______ term

- phi

it seems that if there is only 15, then the only factor is itself.

- phi

want to try filling in the first blank?

- anonymous

yes

- phi

what should you put in the first blank?
______ is the only factor of the ______ term

- anonymous

15

- phi

ok. and which term is the 15 (I would use first or second)

- anonymous

first

- phi

ok

- phi

now
_____ and____ are the factors of the _____ term.
the other factor is 0.2b
what is being multiplied in 0.2b ?

- anonymous

15

- phi

what is being multiplied in 0.2b ?

- anonymous

15

- anonymous

no 0.2b

- phi

if you see a number and a letter next to each other that means they are being multiplied.

- anonymous

ik it took me a min

- phi

yes, but 0.2b has two factors. What two things are being multiplied ?

- anonymous

0.2b

- phi

0.2b in one term, but that term has two factors
It has a number. what is the number ?
It has a letter. what is the letter?

- anonymous

b

- phi

yes, the letter in 0.2b is b
what i the number ?

- anonymous

0.2

- phi

those two things b and 0.2 are the factors
can you fill them in the blanks?
_____ and____ are the factors of the _____ term.

- anonymous

i got it
do both terms have coefficients? explain___________________________________________________________________________________________ what are the coefficients?______

- phi

coefficients are numbers that multiply a letter
if there is no letter in a term, then there is no coefficient
does 12 have a letter ?

- phi

**does 15 have a letter ?

- anonymous

no

- phi

does 0.2b have a letter?

- anonymous

yes

- phi

what is the coefficient of 0.2b ?

- phi

coefficients are numbers that multiply a letter

- phi

what is the number in 0.2b ?
(you answered this already)

- anonymous

0.2

- phi

and
coefficients are numbers that multiply a letter
so what can we call 0.2 (because it multiplies the "b" ) ?

- anonymous

wuld it be
no because 15 is a singgle number

- phi

ok for the first part.
but you do have 1 coefficient for 0.2b

- anonymous

yes

- phi

what is the coefficient for 0.2b ?

- anonymous

0.2

- phi

yes, so 0.2 goes in the last blank

- anonymous

what does the expression 15-0.2b mean in the given situation

- phi

do you know 20 cents is 0.2 dollars?

- anonymous

now i do

- phi

they say you get a discount of 0.2 dollars (20 cents) for each bottle.
For example, if you bought 2 bottles you would get 0.40 off (2*0.20)

- phi

if you bought 3 bottles you would get off 3*0.20 = 0.60 (60 cents off)
the rule is if you have "b" bottles (b is some number)
then the amount of discount is b times 0.20

- phi

they tell you
the expression to find the final cost of the case of juice is 15-0.2b
it is the cost of the case minus the amount of discount
