a.) If you simplify which of the problems does not equal 2x + 6

- anonymous

could you i was thinking the second answer

- anonymous

x + x + 2 + 2 + 2
x+x = 2x
2+2+2=6
2x + 6

@heyyitspaige, In my honest opinion paige, i deep down know that you know how to do this.

- anonymous

uhhh forget about the could you i wrote was a mistake :D

- anonymous

what?

- anonymous

2(x + 3)
(Use distributive property)
(2x)+(2*3)
2x + 6

- anonymous

omg its actually the 3rd one rirght?

- anonymous

2x + 23 (I'm guessing you mean 2x + 2*3?)

- anonymous

so what should it be it says if u were to correct it.. what should it be?

- anonymous

You mean the way i wrote it or the way your wrote it? (the way your wrote it it's as simplified as can be, the way i wrote it it simplifies to 2x + 6)

- anonymous

''Which of the given expressions is NOT equivalent to the expression 2x + 6? Why? If you were to correct it, what should it be?''

- ganeshie8

I think 2x + 23 does not equal 2x+6
so that should be the answer

- anonymous

yep :)

- anonymous

Well wait
Check the last one @ganeshie8

- anonymous

the last what? XD

- anonymous

4 + x + 2 + x = 6 + x

- ganeshie8

last one :
4 + x + 2 + x
4 + 2 + x + x
6 + 2x
2x + 6
this is fine right ?

- anonymous

6 + 2x*

- anonymous

Or 2x + 6

- anonymous

So it is indeed 3

- anonymous

ok im confused :/

- anonymous

i know its the 3rd one...

- anonymous

Why? If you were to correct it, what should it be? Because 2x + 23 does not have any relation to 2x + 6. To correct it add a multiplication symbol and solve: 2x + 2*3 = 2x + 6

- anonymous

what is 2x+23?

- anonymous

thank you! :)

- anonymous

You're welcome :)

- anonymous

youve been so much help!

- anonymous

Write an expression equivalent to 4x + 12 using the distributive property.
So what are both 4x and 12 divisible by?

- anonymous

@heyyitspaige ?

- anonymous

oh sry im writing the answer for the first one ;)

- anonymous

lol no problem

- anonymous

kk next question :)

- anonymous

- anonymous

24?

- anonymous

o.O

- anonymous

im so bad at math so sry :( :(

- anonymous

Divisible by not factors of lol

- anonymous

It's ok

- anonymous

ughhh i feel so dumb

- anonymous

You're ok

- anonymous

:)

- anonymous

4 adn 12 are both divisible by 4

- anonymous

k

- anonymous

So divide 4 from both 4x and 12

- anonymous

Now you have x + 3

- anonymous

kk :)

- anonymous

Add 4 as a factor to the beginning so now you have the answer of 4(x+3)

- anonymous

thank you! again :/

- anonymous

lol it's ok

- anonymous

im so lazy :o yawns*

- anonymous

Now to complete that you may have to put (4x)+(4*3)..... but I'm not positive

- anonymous

@ganeshie8 ?

- anonymous

so were on the 3rd question now?

- anonymous

Yes

- anonymous

Write an expression equivalent to 4x + 12 by combining like terms.

- anonymous

But all like terms are already combined.... @ganeshie8 can you help out please?

- anonymous

yea... thats confusing me sorta
