## More answers

- rebeccaxhawaii

okay so first multiply 2 by 4, 5, and 6

- Miss.Rose

The first question is:
Which expression is equivalent to this one?
–5(6 + 11)
A. (–5) · 6 + 11
B. (–5) + 6 + 11
C. (–5) · 6 · 11
D. (–5) · 6 + (–5) · 11 This one?

- rebeccaxhawaii

so 8+10+12= 8+10+ 12

- benlindquist

? = ? is that all

- rebeccaxhawaii

yes D is correct

- Miss.Rose

Next Question:
What is the solution to the equation?
(3 + 7) = 4 · x + 4 · 7
A. x = 3 This one?
B. x = 4
C. x = 7
D. x = 10

- rebeccaxhawaii

okay well lets parenthesis first so 10= 4 times x +4 times 7

- Miss.Rose

So it's ten?

- rebeccaxhawaii

no because x isnt isolated

- Miss.Rose

Okay. Now I am getting confused. What would it be?

- rebeccaxhawaii

okay look so P.E.M.D.A.S parenthesis then exponents then multiplication and/or division the addition and/or subtation

- rebeccaxhawaii

so thats why we got 10

- rebeccaxhawaii

\[10=4 \times x + 4 \times 7\]

- rebeccaxhawaii

then multiply is next up

- rebeccaxhawaii

so 10= 4x+28

- rebeccaxhawaii

you are trying to get x by itself

- rebeccaxhawaii

so move everything else on the other side of the equal sign

- rebeccaxhawaii

so 10-28=4x the 28 was moved to the other side therefore you need to change the sign so it was positive now its negative

- Miss.Rose

@Ghostgate @JoeDeWise What do you think?

- anonymous

I think that right.

- anonymous

is

- rebeccaxhawaii

are u saying i dont know how to do it

- Miss.Rose

No, not at all. I was just saying that I was trying to get another opinion because I am not understanding what you are trying to say.
Nothing personal.

- Ghostgate

Problem 1 is D, like rebeccaxhawaii claimed, however:
Problem 2: When I do the Math and distribute I come out with -4.5, which allows 10 and 10 to equal, but... the current problem isn't like that.

- Miss.Rose

Please keep this in mind I am in the 7th grade so I have not learned how you guys are doing it.

- Ghostgate

Basically rebeccaxhawaii did the Math, however worded it in a more confusing manner.

- rebeccaxhawaii

well thats how i learned it so

- rebeccaxhawaii

thats how ill explain it

- Miss.Rose

@rebeccaxhawaii I understand that. Everybody learns a different way.
No hard feelings?

- Ghostgate

Anyhow, based off of the problem I don't know where the fours come from on the right, I understand where the '7' comes from, my guess is that '3' is the answer, however originally if you were to solve it algebraically(I believe) then your answer would be -4.5.

- rebeccaxhawaii

lol stop trying to make it sound more complicated

- Ghostgate

Anyhow, like I stated I believe 3 is the answer.

- Miss.Rose

Okay, thanks! I will submit it when I am done and let you know what happens.
Next Question:
Rewrite the expression by using grouping symbols.
1/2 * 4 + 1/2 *z
A. 4(1/2 + z)
B. z(1/2 * 4)
C. 1/2 * (4 + 1/2) * z Is it this one?
D. 1/2(4 + z)

- rebeccaxhawaii

c would be correct

- Ghostgate

Yeah I agree. C. is the answer.

- Miss.Rose

Ok. Thanks!
4th Question:
Which expression is equivalent to this one?
1/6(x - 18)
A. 1/6x - 18 I am guessing this one?
B. 1/6x * (-18)
C. 1/6x - 3
D. 1/6 + x - 18
5th Question:
Evaluate this expression without using a calculator:
8 * 63
A. 489
B. 494
C. 504 This one.
D. 683

- rebeccaxhawaii

yes both are correct

- Miss.Rose

Okay. Thanks! I am going to submit it and tell what I get. Then I am going to medal.
Then close the question.
So Bye!
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!!!

- Miss.Rose

I got a 3/5.
That isn't so bad.
But again thanks!
Bye!
