yes
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
multiplying by 1/5 is the same as dividibg by 5
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid

1a? im confused
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yes, a (we usually write 1a as a)
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
now we have a + 5 = a + 3 notice what happens when subtract away a from each side
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
still there?
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily
yea just confused
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
subtract a from each side
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily

Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
a + 5 - a = ?
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily
4? a would be 1?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
hint: a - a = ?
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily
a
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
are you sure? hint: 1 - 1 = 0 a - a = ?
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily
ok, so a-a=0
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
good, so what is a + 5 - a ?
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily
5
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
good. a + 3 - a = ?
TheEdwardsFamily
  • TheEdwardsFamily
3
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
good. so now we have 5 = 3 notice something unusual about this statement? when we solve an equation and get a false statement like this, there is no solution
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
in other words, there is no value of a that can make 5 equal 3
