# why is algebra so hard (answer)

Hey Colby -- sometimes it's the mixing "numbers and letters" making it hard ... SUGGESTION: instead of writing "x + 5 = 9" re-write "box + 5 = 9" ... what's in the box? ... "2x +5 =9" becomes "box +box +5 = 9" ... what's in each...

Hey Sun -- a) 50 north cancelled by 30+20 south ... b) 50 north offset by 30+10 south leaving 10N/12kg = 5/6 m/s/s North ... c) 50 "noon" cancelled by "5pm & 7pm" 30's (the "peace" sign) ... Regards :)

Hey Lizzy -- for small 'powers', we can just "spell it out" if we're unsure ...   [xxx yyy yyy] [xxx yyy yyy] [xxx yyy yyy] = x^9 y^18 ... All the best :)
