after diving 93m below sea level, a diver rises at a rate of 6 meters per minute for 8 minutes. where is the diver in relation to the surface? i can't figure this one out 6x8=72 72 + 93= 165 but this still doesn't look right at all!!!!!!!!

2. ## algebra

Did I do this problem the correct way if so is there a shorter way to explain this? x(x + 6)(x + -4) = 24x x(6 + x)(x + -4) = 24x x(6 + x)(-4 + x) = 24x (6 + x) * (-4 + x x(6(-4 + x) + x(-4 + x)) = 24x x((-4 * 6 + x * 6) + x(-4 + x)) = 24x x((-24 + 6x) +

4. ## ALGEBRA

this problem looks incorrect in my opinion not sure about it I followed the steps but it still doesn't look right. trying to find out what the x is = to 9x + 7=5 So I do 9x9=81 81+7=88 So what I did was 88-5= 83 x83?

5. ## algebra

Not sure if I have the correct answer dealing with inequalities and not having equal signs. so the problem is 3x+4>9x+2 I came up with 2/6>x? not sure so this why I'm asking

12. ## math algebra

not sure about this can someone please help me solve for x using the addition principle x+10=-13 Now I added 10 to both sides 10 + 10 that gives me 20 then I added -13 +10 = -3 my x is the 20 or did I mess this problem up all the way around?

12. ## ALGEBRA

the original problem is 3+x(12*4)-24 and I thought because by 12* 4= 48 then by adding 3 that gave me 51 then I subtracted 24 and that left me with 27 so I divided 48 by 27 and that gave me 1.7 so i placed 1.7 as the x and it's on the other line showing

19. ## ALGEBRA

Is this done right? to have a solution but both sides of the equal sign must be the same. An example would be 2-x=1. You subtract the 1 from each side, (2-1)= (1-1), making x=1. Plug it back in 2-1=1. The 2-1 equals 1 which is the same number on the other
