How to translate the English into math: 62 is means 62= 4 times refers to multiplication   Sum refers to the answer when you add and a number refers to a variable, therefore  the sum of a number and 3 means x+3the way the question is worded tells you that you need to know the...

Cassie,            Set up a proportion  where 35/245 ( liters/miles ) = 100/x. ( liters/miles) Then cross multiply 35x =245 times 100. Then divide both sides  by 35 to obtain your answer.  I hope this is helpful.  ...

Michael,              you set up a proportion , two equal fractions or ratios. In this case- 2/N = 10/6   then you cross multiply -2 x 6 = 10 x N   which gives you- 12 = 10N     to find...

-4(5w+x)+5(x-3w) (answer)

Ronda,            You would begin by clearing out your parenthesis. You would multiply both 5w & x by -4 and then you would multiply both x & 3w by 5 this would look like this:   (-4)(5w) + (-4)(x) + (5)(x) - (5)(3w)...

Maria,          The first thing you want to do is isolate your variable by subtracting 3x from each side of the equation. This will leave you with -2x = -6. After that divide each side of the equation by the coefficient ( in this case -2 ). When you...

Kassandra,                   This is a subjective question. Your opinion is just as valid as anyone else's. I would start by listing reasons why you feel that the Cold War raged throughout the 50's and 60's...

Lili,          A Circle consists of 360 degrees. So if you have an angle that is created by two radii with a vertex at the midpoint that covers ,for example, 1/4 of the circle the angle would measure 1/4 of 360 degrees. You can do the math.   I...

Mickey.             I am working on the premise that we are speaking about 1 1/2 hours.   You can solve a  question dealing with distance ,time and speed by using the formula   D=RT where D =...

Abby,        An ordered pair is written (x.y) so in this case x = -1 and y = -8 So your equation is -8 =-1-5. If this is a true statement it is a solution. if it is not true then it is not a solution. does -8 = -1-5?   Hope this helps

Arie,             An absolute value question requires two answers because 2 numbers will have the same absolute value. For instance, both 5 and -5 have an absolute value of 5.   So the 2 equations you use are 4x + 6...

Amy,          What is the question? Do you need to come up with the equation for the line? If so, in which form?
