### Re: Solving Multi Step Equations

Hi, thank you for your response. We are not understanding how in your example of the problem, there is a -1x. In the original problem that I posted, there is no -1x. Please explain how you got this number. Thank you. How many x's are in "x"? Is this not one "x"? While the "1" is "understood" and no...

It seems you're not the only user to encounter this issue, but it seems rare and the solution eludes.

### Re: Two parallel lines cut by a curved line

I drew a third line so the 75 split into 37 and 38, 38 being the bottom half. This means x is 38, which it isn't. You still don't show your work, so we will have to guess. You likely started with something along these lines: picture: \ /L3 \ / \ /37* -----------\----/--------- L1 \ /A _____________...

### Re: Solving Multi Step Equations

Hi everyone, we are needing help on [solving] a multi-step equation. \mbox{Solve }\, -x\, -\, 2\,=\, 3x\, +\, 5 In this [worked solution]: -x - 2 = 3x + 5 -1x - 2 = 3x + 5 -3x -3x ---------------- -4x - 2 = 0x + 5 <=== -4x - 2 = 5 -4x - 2 = 5 + 2 = +2 ------------ -4x + 0 = 7 -4x = 7 -4x = 7 --- --...

### Re: Two parallel lines cut by a curved line

How do you find x? It's not 38. Could it be 37? What is the use of the 75 angle? Lacking information regarding "x", "38", "37", "the 75 [degree?] angle", or any other information regarding this exercise, I'm afraid there is no way to proceed. Kindly please enquire of your instructor regarding all t...

...he states that x/sqr(x) is equal to sqrt(x) which i obviously believe i typed x/sqrt(x) in wolfram alpha and it also gave me the result sqrt(x) but i don't understand why What did you get when you did the simplification? You noted that: \sqrt{ x^2\,}\, =\, x (for non-negative x) so: x\, =\, \lef...

### Re: Order of operations isn't working.

I don't understand math; that's why I'm here. I thought that I was doing pemdas exactly...addition comes before subtraction. It seems to me that I'm doing exactly what they gave me. No. As explained in ( this ) lesson, addition and subtraction are at the same "level" and are done at the same time, ...

### Re: How to prove the following function is increasing function?

I am stuck on figuring out why the following function is a increasing function when I read a paper. The function is following f(x)\, =\, \dfrac{(x\, -\, 1)\, c^x\, -\, 2x\, c^{x-1}\,+\,x\,+\,1}{2^x\,-\,x\,-\,1}, \, \mbox{ with }\, 1\, <\, c\, <\, 2\, \mbox{ and }\, x\, >\, 2. This appears to be ide...
