  2. No. It isn't right. You subtract exponents when you divide different powers of the same number.

    What is the vertex form of the equation? y = -x^2+12x-4 My work: -(x^2 + 12x)-4 -(x^2 + 12x + 36)-4 + 36 Y= -(x+36)^2 + 32 Is this correct? I am not sure if I did this right or not? Thank you!

    5x -3 = 11 + 12x combine like figures add 3 to both sides to remove the 3 5x= 14+ 12x Now I get confused. If I remove the 12x I have to subtract 12x from 5x which gives me an answer of -7x=14 would the correct answer thus be x=

    1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X SOLVE 1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X Let's remove the denominators by multiplying by 12X 12X*(1/3) - 12X*(5/6) = 12X*(1/X) Clear the fractions. 4X - 10X = 12 -6X=12 multipy by -1 6X=-12 Divide both sides by 6 6X/6 = -12/6 X = -2

    Is this correct now after i revised it Multiply. 3xy^2(5xy-4x+6y) 3xy^2(5xy)=15x^2y^3 3xy^2(-4x)=-12x^2y^2 3xy^2(6y)=18xy^3 so i get from this 15x^2y^3-12x^2y^2+18xy^3 correct awsome i just thought that the 15x^2y^3-12x^2y^2

    could you walk-through the steps to solving this problem because I am stuck; 3x-5(3x-7)=2(x+9)+45 Let me know if you have a question in any step. 3x-5(3x-7)=2(x+9)+45 3x-15x+35= 2x+18+45 -12x+35 = 2x+63 -35 -35 -12x= 2x +63-35
