Well basically all you do here is add 14 and 36 to get your answer. You finish :)

y(final)-y(initial)=y(total) You want to solve for y(total). y(final) is the roof elevation. an y(initial) is your basement elevation.

If you walk up the stairs what do you think the displacement should be?
anonymous
  • anonymous
positive?
wmj259
  • wmj259
Correct. Do you understand why it should be positive?

The equation for this is | -14 + 36 | Solve

because elavation is going up?
anonymous

Correct

@TheBallisticOne, That does not look correct because you first are basically adding a negative number and then after taking the difference you take the absolute value.

can i ask you guys some more? :)
wmj259
  • wmj259
Based on the formula you gave that would mean the elevation is 22 feet.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh you're right @wmj259 |-14|+36?

The price of a gallon of gasoline was $1.65. The price rose y dollars. Then the price dropped $0.15 and later rose again by $0.45. Now the price of gasoline is? Which expression could be used to find the price of the gasoline? A) 1.9 + y Eliminate B) 1.95 + y C) 2.0 + y D) 2.1 + y
anonymous
  • anonymous
First solve (1.65 - 0.15) + 0.45 The answer is (Above Solution) + y
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk ill tell u my answer
anonymous

1.95+y?
wmj259

Which property explains why these two expressions are equal? 7 + q + 4 = 4 + 7 + q A) associative B) commutative C) distributive D) inverse
anonymous
  • anonymous
?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Solve from these definitions Associative - Able to move around parenthesis and still get the same answer. Commutative - able to move numbers and variables and still get the same answer. Distributive - able to distribute a factor to two different numbers using the same property for instance k(7-9)=(k7)-(k9)
anonymous
  • anonymous
commutative?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct

A football player caught the ball and made a gain of 8 yards on the first play. On the next play the team lost 12 yards. How many yards do they need to gain on the next play to get back to their original position? A) 4 B) 6 C) 8 D) 12
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because the numbers commute (that's how i remember)
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh yea... that could help
anonymous
  • anonymous
last question sorry for all the trouble :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Np
anonymous
  • anonymous
Assume the original position is 0.
anonymous
  • anonymous
First play is the equation 0+8=
anonymous
  • anonymous
which is 8
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right
anonymous
  • anonymous
Next play is the equation 8-12=
anonymous
  • anonymous
-4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
So how much do you need to add or subtract to get back to 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's your answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct
