Either divide or multiply the number connectected to the variable to the number on the other side. for example
24=6y y/3=4
y=3 y=12

- GrandMoffChris

So that means what?

someone???

- pooja195

-2x = -15
We are isolating x correct?
Divide both sides by -2

- GrandMoffChris

Have no idea

- GrandMoffChris

Idk, I have millions of times, I... AM.... BAD.... AT.... THIS!!!

- GrandMoffChris

said that

I don't know the answer, sorry but, I found a website you can use for math help http://www.freemathhelp.com/calculators.html

- pooja195

Our expression is:
\[\huge~\rm~ -2x = -15\]
When we want to isolate the expression we divide both ides by -2x because -2x/-2x/1 so you have x by it self
-15/-2=15/2 - divided by a negative will result in a positive solution.
so we have x=15/2
Also no one will want to help you if you don't participate instead of idk try to attempt the problem so that you will learn. I know i have said this to you before.

@girlmeetsworld

- pooja195

And to all the other users: Please don't give links to calculators. The user needs to learn.
@GrandMoffChris quit tagging people.

Pooja got this ... she better at math than me. P

- anonymous

- nathalie0918

:)

- pooja195

I want you to try
6x = 42
DO NOT say "idk"

- GrandMoffChris

Idk

- pooja195

Then i'm sorry i can't help you.

- GrandMoffChris

wait

- GrandMoffChris

7.5?

- pooja195

We are dividing BOTH sides by 6
6/6=x
x=42/6
42 divided by 6=?

- GrandMoffChris

7

- pooja195

Congrats you solved it.

- GrandMoffChris

:D

- pooja195

Now this one
g/3 = -0.7
When we are working with these we need to multiply by the reciprocal
the reciprocal basically means the flipped fraction
g/3=3/g
\[\huge~\rm~\frac{g }{3}\times \frac{ 3 }{ g }=g\]
The numbers cancel out and you are left with just g
Now multiply
\[\huge~\rm~\bf -0.7 \times 3=? \]

- GrandMoffChris

mmgggg

- pooja195

Tell me "idk" and i leave

- GrandMoffChris

i wont

- GrandMoffChris

-2.1?

- pooja195

Congrats you solved another one

- pooja195

Do this one using the same method
y/4 = 3

- GrandMoffChris

Alright

- GrandMoffChris

12

- pooja195

Good :)
y=12

- GrandMoffChris

:D

- GrandMoffChris

-14?

- pooja195

Well done :D
Remeber to write
j=-14

- GrandMoffChris

Ok

- pooja195
