Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you do the distributive part first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x – 3y + 4(x – y) + 5x What you you get after you apply the distributive property to 4(x – y)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but after that what property do I use? commumative, associative?

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You did not distribute correctly

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First thing, which is what Direct pointed out. So let's revisit that first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you understand the link?

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so it would be 2x – 3y + 4x 4y + 5x? @fibonaccichick666 @directrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then after what property would I use and could u show me

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now, what is our goal?

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do I use associative property next? or commumative

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, first, what is our goal?

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0combine like terms? @FibonacciChick666

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea, so does commutative or associative allow you to move terms around?

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(get all the like terms in one place is another way to say our goal)

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good! so, go ahead, make it so

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2x  4x + 5x+ 3y + 4y?

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why is it 4x?

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont know how to put it @FibonacciChick666

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do you mean? you just moved the terms around. You have to move the whole term, not just part of it

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont understand.. how do you change it around? @FibonacciChick666

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you literally just pick up term and move it. Like moving blocks on the floor when you were a kid. Let's say you had blue, red, yellow block. in that order, but you wanted red before blue, so you pick up the red block and move it in front of the blue or you pick up the blue bock and put it behind the red. Make sense? Now your blocks are terms (+4x or 4y etc) Just move them like you would blocks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1did you have a 4x before you moved stuff around? Did you have a +3y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What's that mean?

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1full sentences please. Or at least semifull fragments

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I had +3y @FibonacciChick666

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't see a +3y, can you point it out? \[''2x – 3y + 4x 4y + 5x?"\]

Bossimbacon
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right after the 2x there's a 3y

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't see a plus sign in front of it

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh its negative 3?

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1commutative only works for addition so technically its +(3y)

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but so long as you bring the negative along for the ride, that's too many symbols to write all the time

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is i t 2x + 4x 5x 4y 3y? @FibonacciChick666

Bossimbacon
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or could just explain it and right it down

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is your equation : \[2x – 3y + 4(x – y) + 5x=2x – 3y + 4x –4 y + 5x\] Now starting from there. Move the +5x to a better spot

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have to write the whole thing, you can't just leave off the rest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x + 5x + 4x  4y  3y?

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiple steps, but yes

Bossimbacon
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the equation is right?

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not simplified yet, but correct to this point

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so added up it becomes 11x  1y? @FibonacciChick666

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what's a negative plus a negative?

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no... thats times not addition

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is 6+7

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1close, that would be 7+7

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I thought it might be a type0

FibonacciChick666

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is 4y3y

Bossimbacon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but isnt this subtracting not adding?

FibonacciChick666
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is no such thing as subtraction or division actually

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so final answer is?
