We just have to isolate a. We need to move the a to the right. Do you know how to do that?
Ok, so how do you think we have to move the 'a' from -17/a to the right with -17?
im not a big fan of fractions
And that's why we get rid of them, To get rid of it, we just have to multply a on both sides. -17/a is -17 divided by a. When we multiply a into it, it cancels out and leaves us with -17. Now we multiply a on the other side and it gives us -17a.
-17/a * a = -17 * a -17 = -17a
Does that make sense?
Yea it does
Now we have to keep isolating a. How do you think we can move the -17 in -17a to the other side of the equation?
I just lost my answer on what i was going to type
The things you type disappear sometimes, the site has a lot of lag.
i have to leave in a little bit
Ok, well. Remember that we need to cancel out. What is the opposite of multiplication?
So what do we do with -17 in the -17a?
Yes. What do we get when we divide -17 on both sides of the equation?
you divide it with a right
No. We need to isolate a, so it's going to be: -17/-17 = (-17a)/-17
what do we get
When you're dividing a number by itself what do you get
-17 or 0
Yes, 1. Sooooo.....
-17/-17 = ? -17a/-17 = ?
We are dividing both sides by -17
i give you a medal thx
