2. Since all parts are equal, that means that each part has an equal number. It says that x times y equals 15, and x+y equals 8. 4+4 equals 8. So, the posiblility is that the other two sides equal 4. But, the thing is, 4 times 4 equals 16. maybe your question whats you to round, probably by saying about or apportimately.

6. First, to complete this problem, you add like terms (2b and 3b)(add them together). Now you should have something like 5b-6. Now add 6 to both sides. Now you should have something like 5b=20. Next you need to divide 5 from both sides. Now you should have b=4. There you go, you should have your answer.
