Emilyn--- This problem is similar to the one that I just went over with you (the one about the two-digit number). Please read that description and let me know if you have trouble from there. Thanks!

Emilyn--- I am going to give you another example to work with. Suppose a landscaper is trying to determine the total area of a back yard. The entire backyard is covered by a pool (with dimensions 25'X50') and a sidewalk that extends out from the pool on each side by 6'. What is...
Emilyn- This question is similar to the example that I am going to walk through with you. The example states: A two-digit number has a value in the ten's place that can be squared. It will then be 5 more than the two digits combined. The value in the one's place is two less than the ten's place...
Cheryl, To begin this problem, I would suggest using a table like the one shown below: Beginning Week...
PEMDAS= 1) Parentheses 2) Exponents 3) Multiplication/Division (work these from left to right) 4) Addition/Subtraction (work these from left to right) If given the equation 4(3+2)-6+4, you would follow these steps: 1) Solve within parentheses, so 3+2=5...
Wanda, To be able to fully answer this question, you must write an equation from the word problem. Be sure to look out for words such as and, less, more, etc. to signify what mathematical symbol (-, +, *, /) you need to use in your equation. To begin with, let's say that Marleen's...
Zafar, Think about the number of places where a flat object meets another flat object within your 3D shapes. For example, the cone is made up of a rectangle rolled up and a circle. The rectangle and circle meet up at one point, the entire way around the circle. Therefore, the cone has one edge...
Meg, As tutors, we are not allowed to solve your problems for you. However, using u-substitution can be simpler if you ensure that you choose the correct value for u. In most cases, you can find u by: Using the values within a square root Using complex exponents (such as 53x) Or...
George, I'm not an expert in this area since I don't live in SC and I have never taken this particular test, but I'd have to say that studying and tutoring times depend on each individual student and how much they already know from previous classes or experience. This is the case for most testing,...
Esther, Are you trying to learn how to solve this equation? Unclear on the question you have with it. Please comment back to let me know!
Do you have any textbooks available to you? How many sources do you need to use?
Devin, To create equations like this, you must note key words. Here is a short list of ones you will often see that will indicate which type of equation to use. Sum- use a + sign Subtract- use a - sign Minus- use a - sign Total- use a + sign Divide- use a / sign Multiply-...
Try starting with a value table instead of a graph. For example, if you have 1 ladder bridges, how many feet of steel rods do you use? Since the equation tells you that you need to create a square with the rods to make a ladder bridge, one bridge would have 4 squares. In addition, each square will...
Is this a homework assignment or something that you are practicing with? If it is homework, I cannot write a story for you. However, I can give you some tips. 1) Choose a topic- try looking for nouns within your word list to give you an idea of topics. For example, monarch is...
Combining like terms is fairly simple. To begin with, you must know your Order of Operations. This can be remembered by using PEMDAS. P=parentheses, E=exponents, MD=multiplication/division, and AS=addition/subtraction. The Order of Operations tells you which steps you must take first when solving...
