We have: A = [2 -3        -2 5] 2B = [8 6x         0 -2] So A + 2B = [2+8 -3+6x                    -2+0 5-2]   or [10 -3+6x -2    ...

To solve this equation for x, we should simplify and then combine like terms. Notice that the second term, 8x/x, simplifies to 8 since x/x = 1, so we can rewrite the equation as: 4-8+1 = 8/x+1 Combining the constant terms gives: -3 = 8/x +1 To get the x...

To solve this equation, manipulate the numbers so that the base numbers are the same. Since 4 = 2^2 we can rewrite this as: 2^3x = (2^2)^(x+2) Expanding the exponent gives: 2^3x = 2^(2x+4) Now that both bases are the same, we see that 3x = 2x+4 Solving...

For test prep, we'll work on specific test strategies that build on what has been learned in school. It's not "one size fits all". Tutoring is about meeting the needs of the individual... read more
