Alright so I have two equations that the paper is giving me to simplify, only problem is I don't know where to start.. and my text book isn't being helpful, so I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction? x.x
2/3 (12t - 18) + 2t - 30
40 ( 3/8 * Y - 1/4) + 40 (4/5)
It is also asking me to solve for questions.
2 - (4x + 7) = 3 + 2 (x + 2) ------ I started solving this one by using distributive property after adding 3+2=5 on the right side, making (x + 2) into 5x + 10..?
x/3 + x/4 = -2 ------ This one I started by getting the least common denominator of 3 and 4, which made the equation 4x/12 + 3x/12 = 7x/12 ------ From there it left me with 7x/12 = -2 and from there I am stuck.
Distributive Property - Free Math Help. After that, it is just a matter of adding like terms.
Here is the second expression simplified:
Unfortunately, I don't have time to completely go through the third and fourth problems, but e^(i*pi) did a nice job of typing them out. You need to review how the distributive property relates to the order of opperations --why you can't add the 3 and the 2 outside the parentheses first here: . I think that website I put up the link to will help. If this can wait untill tomorrow, I can work with you more then. Just reply and let me know where you are at.
Yes, you are correct in getting -27/7 .
