let x equal the number you are looking for. The second number the instructions say there is a difference of 5 between these tow numbers and when you add them together you get 21   So x= one number   and x-5 = second number   now, add these together to get 21   so   (x+x)-5=...

An animal that is both an herbivore (plant eater) and a carnivore (meat eater) would be one that eats "everything" so to speak, both plants and meat.  So the prefix that we put in front of "-vore" to indicate an animal that eats both plants and meat is...

This quadratic equation can be solved in several ways.  One that to me seems the simplest is known as  FOILing the equation.  This method takes advantage of the distributuve property of math to solve an equation. Multiply together the first two knowns and variables in...

Transcribing DNA to RNA is the same principle as transcribing DNA to DNA.  There is one key difference however; when transcribing DNA to DNA the A (adenine) in the template pairs to a T (tyrosine) in the copy.  In the DNA to RNA trasnscription process changes s bit  that...

To solve this equation, and it is an equation because we have an equal sign, we use what is know as the distributive property.  In other words we will "distribute" the -5 across all the numbers in parenthesis.  This makes sure every number is treated equally, no number...

What we have is known as a binomial expression.  It's called an "expression" because there is no equal sign.  If there was it would be called an equation.  But for now we'll just solve the expression part. There is a couple of ways of doing this.  We can do it by...
