Solving equations w fractions (not quite getting it, help!)  TOPIC_SOLVED

Hi, Can someone please explain to me how to do this problem step-by-step Solve for b: H=5/3(a+2ab) I know the answer is b=3H-5a/10 However, I'm just unsure how to get there, more specifically how H became 3H. More, more specifically I don't know how to multiply the fraction with the equation... for ...

Re:  TOPIC_SOLVED

Can someone please explain to me how to do this problem step-by-step Solve for b: H=5/3(a+2ab) ....But, how did 3 get multiplied with H.. shouldn't it be 5/3*H = 5/3 * H/3? (why is H getting multiplied with the denominator??) You need to get "b" by itself. It is currently in the denominat...

Re:  TOPIC_SOLVED

I only get how to do systems that are in the form of y=x+a y=x-b and etc. i.e. where the variables are on the same side of both the equations. Ah. So you need to learn how to solve, for instance, the second equation you posted for "y=". To learn how to do this, try this lesson . Note: To ...

Re:  TOPIC_SOLVED

For instance, I don't understand how y < is the same as (5,0). It isn't. Instead, try graphing the system of inequalities and finding the coordinates of the corner points. (Note: I suspect that your third inequality is actually "x < 5".) Then plug those corner points into the optimization...

Factoring polynomials using the distributive property  TOPIC_SOLVED

HI, I am having trouble getting the correct answer for this problem: 4x^2+8y-4xy-8x I have made several attempts. Here is one of them: 4x^2+8y-4xy-8x 1) Grouped like terms together: = (4x^2 + (-8x))+(8y + (-4xy)) 2) Factored each term: (2*2*x*x + (-1)*2*2*2*x) + (2*2*2*y + (-1)*2*2*x*y) 3) Found gre...

4x(x-2) + 4y(2-x)
5) Therefore, the solution to the problem is the binomial:
(4x+4y)(x-2)

How did the "2 - x" turn into "x - 2"? Is 5 - 3 the same value as 3 - 5? :wink:

I got the right answer now. Thanks :)
