What about this one
a-4.8=-3.6

- anonymous

Would you like me to help you?

- anonymous

Ok Thank you step by step please

- anonymous

First, what are you trying to solve for?

- Theloshua

|dw:1443668645963:dw|

- anonymous

Solve for a

- Theloshua

a = 1.2 understabd

- anonymous

Correct. So, in order to solve for a, you need to isolate it. How can you get the a by itself?

- anonymous

Cancel 4.8

- anonymous

how do you cancel the 4.8?

- anonymous

Idk

- anonymous

If you have a negative number you add a positive one. If you have a positive one, you will deed to subtract the number. Remember, what you do to one side you need to do to the other

- anonymous

In this case you have a-4.8=-3.6
is the 4.8 positive or negative?

- anonymous

Positive

- anonymous

So its -1.2

- anonymous

no, it isn't. What is after the a?

- anonymous

-4.8

- anonymous

Right. the minus sign is attached to the 4.8 making it a negative number

- anonymous

Then you change it to a positive

- anonymous

Well, we are not changing it, but we need to add a positive 4.8 to cancel it out

- anonymous

-4.8
+4.8
____
0.0

- anonymous

Then the a is by itself

- anonymous

Right

- anonymous

So, if you add 4.8 to the left side to cancel and get the a by itself, you need to add the same to the right side

- anonymous

do you follow that so far?

- anonymous

Yes can you help me in another one

- anonymous

Have we finished with this one?

- anonymous

Yes i get it

- anonymous

What is the final answer?

- anonymous

A=1.2

- anonymous

ok, what is the next problem you have?

- anonymous

M+6.25=3.5

- anonymous

What are you trying to solve for?

- anonymous

M

- anonymous

so what do you need to do first?

- anonymous

Subtract 3.5 on both sides

- anonymous

Will that get the m by itself?

- anonymous

Yes

- anonymous

really? show me how

- anonymous

Wait no

- anonymous

Need to subtract the positive number and what you do on one side you need to do in the other one

- anonymous

Are you still there?
