It's not as hard as you think it is.
The first step is to combine like terms....what are those? Like terms are constants and variables that share qualities. For example you have two terms her with the variable "x". to combine them, look at the sign that is in front of them and add them together....

Here are some etymology references on the orign of "hello".. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=hello http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello Hope that helps. Please remember to click the thumbs up if this helped you! Thank you :)

Just to add to Nataliya's anwer. The set of numbers given identify a point on the coordinate grid, and the m represents the slope of a line on which the identified point lies. So if you were to graph this line, you would start at (2, -5) then move 2 up and 1 to the right (slope is always rise over...

I won't do your homework for you :) But here are a couple links to websites with this information.

This looks much more confusing than it really is. Let's look at the problem step-by-step and I'll explain it as I go along.
First, you have x that stand for a number that is unknown for now, but look closly at the problem. You have more than 1 x, and they are all being added. So we can use the...

If your X represents the multiplication sign, you would work this out like this, following the order of operations:
PEMDAS(parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction)
6 + (6 * 0 ) + 2 =
6 + 0 + 2 =
6 + 2 = 8
If that x isn't supposed...

If you set these two equations equal to each other and solve algebraicaly it should look like this:
2x + 5 = 6x + 1
-1 -1
2x + 4 = 6x
-2x ...

Julia,
Sometimes with these coordinate geometry problems, its helpful to draw out the polygon that you are working with.
Fist remember that the letters of the vertices must always follow the same order as given in the problem. So your polygon will look something like this:
T=(8a+33)...

Yaro,
The possible properties you listed do not fit your problem. Were these your initial thoughts or are they the answers you have to chose from?
Here is how Suzie should have solved her problem:
2(x + 4 ) = 18
(2*x) + (2*4) = 18 --- using the distributive property of addition...
