    Solve the equation by factoring, by finding square roots, or by completing the square. 4(x+8)^2=144 I'm not sure if I'm suppose to divide or multiply the 4 to both sides..

    Rewrite the equation so the variable is alone. Solve to find the value of the variable. 42=-2h Divide both sides by 2. Then change the signs of both sides. That will provide the answer. Possibly in 1 step: Divide by -ve 2

    N2 + 3H2 --> 2NH3 At 25°C (delta)Ho = -92.22 kJ and (delta)So = -198.53 J/K. Using this information, calculate the equilibrium constant for the reaction at 2.43x10^2°C. (R = 8.314 J/K) Apparently the way I'm doing it is wrong: I divide 198.53 by 1000

    How would one write y = 2/3x -4 in standard form? First read: http://www.algebralab.org/studyaids/studyaid.aspx?file=Algebra1_5-5.xml Then: multiply both sides by 3 3y=2x-12 then move terms into standard form -2x+3y=-12 you could multiply both sides by -1

    i have to make y the subject of this equation: 4t + 7y - 9 = 0 wod it be y = 4t + 9/7 ?? You need to do the same processes to both sides of the equation. First, add 9 to both sides. 4t + 7y = 9 Subtract 4t from both sides. 7y = 9 - 4t Divide both sides by

    Why are these algebraic expressions used and explain the logical error: Since a = b, then a2 = a * b Subtract b2 from both sides a2 – b2 = a * b – b2 Factor both sides: ( a + b )( a – b ) = b(a – b ) Divide both sides by ( a – b) ( a + b ) = b

    24= -2(b-3)+8 I suppose you want to solve 24= -2(b-3)+8 for b, am I right? If so, subtract 8 from both sides to get 16 = -2(b-3) divide both sides by -2 to get -8 = b-3 then add 3 to both sides to get -5 = b then check the answer 24 = -2(-5-3) + 8 = 16 + 8
