1.x – 6 = 8 2.y + 5 = –12 3. -2c= –18
Okay so giving you the answer wouldn't help. You need to know how to do it.
i know thats why i asked help not tell
Okay let me help.
ty and whos the mod here
My computer crashed sorry. Okay so for each equation, to solve for x you want to get it by itself.
To do that, you need to remove the numbers on the side of the equation x is at.
For the first one, how would you get -6 to equal 0?
Okay so to get rid of negative numbers, you need to add a positive number to it.
-6 + 6 = 0
After you add that to the side of the equation x is on, you have to add it to the other side.
so it would be x=6
So, x-6 = 8 +6 +6
wait no i got it x=14 ok
Now try to do the second one.
yeah so the same for the others????\
if you have a positive number that you need to get rid of, you need to subtract.
would it be y=-7
Close! If you are subtracting from a negative number, you need to add
or did i mis a step
So -12 - 5 = -17
Do you understand?
ok so then y=-17
Now can you do the last one?
what about this fractoin thisng its 1/4 a=3
It is VERY different for the last one.
Annoying I know, but when you have 3x that means it is 3*x right?
can you help me with this one then ill do the last one 1/4 a=3
okay well to do that one, 1/4 * a = 3
We can do two things here.
so it would be a=12
ok well thats easy
So what do you do for the last one?
If it is multiplication, use division
ok l3ets see
Keep the c alone and focus on the 3
so would it be c=-36 jw
Okay, so no. If we have multiplication, we need to use division to get rid of the 3
no wait it would be c=-9 right
Yep. Except remember that a negative/negative = positive
So it would be 9
so it would be c=9 then right
and can you help with 2 or 3 more thats all
heres the first 6.5 = –3 + n
OKay so what do you think we would do first?
um lets see
-3 make it 3 maybe
Add 3 to both sides to get rid of -3. :)
so would be n=9.5 right??
ok ty now 2 more please
then theres this 2/3x=6
ok so what do you think we should do first. Hint: We will need to use multiplication and division for this one
sry crashed and um maybe divison
Nope. IF we have a fraction beside the variable we need to get rid of the denominator.
To cancel out division, you need to use multiplication.
oh so how would it be like??
So, to get rid of 3 we need to multiply by 3 on both sides.
would it be x=9
Yes!! Good job!
yes ty one more and again ty now i get it a lil more bc im home schooled and never get it thanks
I'm homeschooled as well, so I understand.
thats awesome thanks for the help
Okay so on this one I would simplify first.
I just realized that was probably a stupid question I apologize.
so would be x=8
If you ever need anymore help, feel free to tag me if I am online.
lol thanks wish i could give more then one medal
Algebra is one of my favorite subjects.
ok i will thanks
And here is a medal for getting those last ones on your own!
oh ty so much have a great one thanks
No problem! You too!
yeah would have mostliky asked someone to give lol
heres a word Q u think u could help
You need to make 18 cupcakes for a birthday party. You have already made 11. How many more cupcakes do you need to make? Write an equation and solve.
nvm i was right have a good one
Sorry! Glad you got it yourself though!
