8th grade math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:21pm
I'll do the first one.
8x + 3 (7x6)
8x + 21x  18
29x  18
I'll be glad to check your answer for the second problem.

oooh i get the first one now. But wat i am asking is how you do the second problems that are like the second and the third problem.

8th grade math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:30pm
You try the second problem. Do it the same way I did the first problem.

i just want you to know that i might be more confused with this because i am a 7th grader and i am in accelerated math so that is why i am doing 8th grade math and this is really hard for me right now so yeah

8th grade math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:32pm
If you can't at least try to do the second problem, you don't belong in accelerated math.

8th grade math  saranghae12, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:33pm
ummm is it 6x  17? im not sure if this is right

8th grade math  saranghae12, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:34pm
yeah i did ask my teacher if i could go back to regular math but then she decided that she will decide on my quiz score and i got a good grade

8th grade math  saranghae12, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:40pm
and for the third problem is it this i will do it in the steps:
4( 1+9x)
4(1)+ 4(9x)
4 + 36x
is this correct? 
8th grade math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:44pm
The third problem is right.
For the second problem:
9(4x8) + 2x
Start by multiplying 9 times 4x and 9 times 8. 
8th grade math  saranghae12, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:46pm
ooohhh ok so the second problem would be 36x + 72 + 2x right?

8th grade math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:48pm
Right!

8th grade math  saranghae12, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:52pm

8th grade math  correction  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 9:52pm

34x + 72
