try simplifying them first

- GabeBae

This is easy
Just use the distributive property

- anonymous

Okay

- anonymous

|dw:1446421510143:dw|

- GabeBae

- anonymous

in the second one, the negatives cancel leaving you with x-12+4x

- GabeBae

Wouldn't you use FOIL for the second one?

- GabeBae

You can't leave x by itself

- anonymous

|dw:1446421668350:dw|

- anonymous

no i don't think you use foil

- anonymous

foil is when it's parenthesis multiplied by another parenthesis

- anonymous

in this case, it's simply saying that you have to add -4 multiplied by 3 and -4 multiplied by -x, and subtract THAT from x

- GabeBae

well then.. I hope you're doing it correctly

- GabeBae

You can take over

- anonymous

lol, ty, GabeBae, what a gentleman

- anonymous

- anonymous

you get 10-15x < 5x-12

- anonymous

alright, @CompleteCowgurl17
you know how to solve equations, right ?

- anonymous

so just pretend this is an equation and simplify

- anonymous

Okay and yes somewhat

- anonymous

|dw:1446422046306:dw|

- anonymous

what do you get?

- anonymous

(whatever you do to one side you do to the other)

- anonymous

Im confused

- anonymous

why?

- anonymous

I cant understand what you wrote

- anonymous

alright. so do you understand the part where 10-15x < 5x - 12??

- anonymous

oh yes

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

think of it as an "equation" from now on until the end

- anonymous

how do you simplify equations?

- anonymous

PEMDAS

- anonymous

you try to get the variable by itself, yes, by using pemdas, but pemdas is useful mainly when you're trying to simplify a single equation

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

so you would focus on getting the variable by itself, which in this case is x

- anonymous

so 10-15x "=" 5x - 12

- anonymous

in order to get a variable by itself, you have to try to get rid of something
I want to get rid of the -12, so I will add 12 to get 0. But in order to do that, I will need to add 12 on the other side as well, so I can still keep the "equation" equal

- anonymous

do you understand that? my wording might be a bit... all over the place..

- anonymous

Okay so I finally dd the original equation, and I got x=2.75

- anonymous

Is that right?

- anonymous

alright, wait a send please, I haven't actually solved it, lol

- anonymous

ok haha

- anonymous

22=20x

- anonymous

So 1.1?

- anonymous

divide each side by 20 and I get|dw:1446422640926:dw|

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

Okay now would the circle for the arrow be not filled in
?

- anonymous

yup, because it's only <

- anonymous

for < and >, the circle will be empty

- anonymous

for the ones that have a line underneath will have the circle always filled in

- anonymous

Sweet! Thanks again :D too all of you :D
