Factorization is simple...much simpler than you see above, that's for sure. Whew, no wonder so many kids and adults have a problem with understanding the technical babble, as I tend to call it.   Ok, think of pulling something out of a bunch of numbers and letters. Ask yourself what...

Ratio means to divide the number that comes first, by the number that comes next. So, you're dealing with a fraction. You see 14 girls first, so the top number (numerator) is 14. 21 boys is next, so that's the denominator. Now, the question asks...is that fraction equal to the other fraction they...

Break the top apart into two expressions, and then, factor it out, Cancel the top and bottom common factors.    (x^3-5x^2)+(2x-10)/x-5   x^2(x-5)+2(x-5)/x-5   Cancel ALL common factors (x-5) on both top and bottom You end up with x^2+2...

When they're asking about factoring, think division.   What number can you pull out of both the numbers you see?   (2n) and (-6)   They have to be divided evenly. Out of the 2n and the -6, you can divide a 2 out of each, evenly. Once you pull out the 2, ask...

Chris, you are absolutely correct. It is a very poorly written question. The question doesn't tell you how many each person would pack, just how many each purchases. You could do a fractional portion of each: 16+8/44 = 24/44 for allison and 6/44 for hanson, but the question doesn't say how they...

X+7=-2(4x+10) (answer)

Well, that's a douzy! Isn't it?  That would drive most students running to the board, eh? NOT! ;) X+7=-2(4x+10) No Sweat! Follow the simple steps and you'll be able to do it again and again. 1. 1X+7=-2(4x+10) First do distribution. That means, take the number...

Substitution? Easy as pie! Think of it this way, when you substitute something, you're replacing it with something else, right? That's what substitution in math is about too. You replace a letter you don't know with something you do know, so you can make the problem easy to solve. Step 1: Write...
