it already tells you what b is, just plug it into the equation. Happy to help. Us pikachu's must stick together.
Omg yess. Pikachu is love and life. And I know how to plug in the variable into the equation, I just have a hard time solving it. I think I got the answer though and I think it's -11.
It would be /-4-2/+/-1+4/+-16 solve from there
How did you get -1+4 and -16?
those/ are basically paranthesis. do everything inside the paranthesis, then combine.
-b2=4 because -2 times -2 is positive 4 2b3=-16 because -2 to the third power is -2 times -2 times -2, so that would equal -8, times 2, which would give you -16.
@TheSmartOne could you take a look at this one too?
Shortened down even more it would be: -6+3+-16 And then further:-3+-16 And further: -19
Was it right?
I got -11. What I did was I solved the first part which was "0" and then the second part which was "5" and then the last part which was "-16" and I added 5+-16 and got -11
@ganeshie8 am I right? or did i do it wrong?
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i misread, good job. I guess this is why your smart score is 59 and mine is 58. Hahahahaha...... you were right. Sorry 'bout that
I was? Ohhh yay! c:
Wait, I think the 5 I got might have actually been a 3.
I think I messed up.
@ganeshie8 was @DALLINATOR720 correct?
Yes, -11 looks good
So, -11 is correct?
@ganeshie8 I think I got the answer wrong though. When I did |-1-(-2)^2| I keep getting different answers that aren't 5.
|-1-(-2)^2| (-2)^2 = -2 x -2 = + 4 |-1 - (+4)| -1 - (+4) = -1 - 4 = -1 (1 + 4) = -1(5) = -5 |-5| = 5 So, can you identify where you are making the mistake and not getting 5 as the answer, now?
