x+3y=2 -x+y=1 so y=x+1, substitute that into the 1st x+3(x+1)=2 x+3x+3=2 4x+3=2 4x=-1 x=-1/4 Substitute that into either of the original equations to solve for y.

Why is there no corresponding point on tan^-1(x) for the (135,-1) on the graph tan(x). Thanks!

7th grade math
6+x=2x-14 Letters on one side, numbers on the other. Subtract x from both sides. 6=x-14 Add 14 to both sides. 20=x

math
The lines mean absolute value. It means to make whatever is inside positive. |2|=2 |-2|=2 -|2|-2 -|-2|=-2 Get it? Always do the absolute value part first.

Jess is right, it's add. 5 * 3 = 15. 5 * 2 = 10 and 5 * 1 = 5, 10 + 5 = 15.

No solution.

All of the whole numbers between -4 and 6, not including them since it's not <=. -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

math
I'll do the first one. x+8>15 You want to get the letters on one side and numbers on the other. Subtract 8 from both sides. x>7

algebra 2
2x+5y=10 x-3y=-6 Multiply the 2nd equation by -2 so that the x's cancel. 2x+5y=10 -2x+6y=12 Add the lines together. 11y=22 Solve for y, replace that in either original equation to solve for x.

MATH PRE-ALGEBRA
It should be an open dot because it's an inequality. It would be a closed dot if it was an equality, such as x=3.

Algebra 1
It's not a solution. It would have to say x>=-4 for that to be true. -4 is not more than -4.

Since it's an equilateral triangle, AB=BC. 3x=2x+12, solve for x.

You just divide it. 19/3=6 remainder 1, and the denominator stays 3.

Inverse operations are like "opposites", what undoes the operation. Multiplication and division are inverses, as are addition and subtraction. For example, if you have 4x+2=10, you have to use the inverse of addition (subtraction) to get rid of the 2. 4x+2=10 Subtrac...

Yes, there is a common between yes, ma'am. No, I don't think it's necessary to say that. I think it's a bit old school. There are other ways to show respect besides that.

To rewrite in Ax+By=C form, rearrange the terms so that x and y are on the left and the number is on the right. 5y-6=2x+3 Subtract 2x from both sides. -2x+5y-6=3 Add 6 to both sides. -2x+5y=9
