Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mathematical brackets are symbols such as parentheses that are most often used to create groups or clarify the order that operations are to be done in an algebraic expression. Some bracket symbols, however, have multiple special uses in mathematics.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2First, let's clarify what a term, and a factor is. Whenever you see two numbers or variables separated by a "+" sign, they are called "terms", for example: \((x+4\)) is a mathematical expression with two terms, there "x" is one term, and "4" is another term, and the "+" sign inbetween them is what separates them. A factor, is exactly the same as a term, but are divided by a product, for example: \[a(b+c)\] This is a mathematical expression which presents two factors, "a" is a factor, and \((b+c)\) is another factor. At the same time, the second factor \((b+c)\) presents two terms inside itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[2(p+1)=18\] There are several ways to solve this equation, that would be by dividing both sides of the "=" sign by two: \[\frac{ 2(p+1) }{ 2 }=\frac{ 18 }{ 2 }\] Ending up with: \[p+1=9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, an equation is considered solved for when the variable is isolated on any side of the "=" sign, how would you do that?
