***B. Add 8 to each side and then multiply each side by 5.

C. Multiply each side by 5 and then add 40 to each side.

D. Subtract 8 from each side and then multiply each side by 5.

***E. Multiply each side by 5 and then add 8 to each side.

  1. You are "undoing" the equation to get m all by itself... so you have to do BEDMAS in reverse... so the addition of 8 to both sides is first : )
    b is correct : )

  2. E is wrong. That gives you
    m/5 - 8 = -6
    m - 40 = 30

  4. Oh hey, it's Jaxx. I know you.

    Why are there never answers to Math quizzes and tests, despite them being the hardest ones? Hmm.
    Anywho, I'll just have to take the test and sacrifice myself to see what the answers are. Wish me luck. Be back in like an hour.
