An ordered pair refers to a location on a coordinate plane. Ordered pairs look like (x,y). So all you need to know is what the x value and y value is of the location that George drove to. They tell you in the problem that the y axis runs north and south and that the x axis runs east and west. The...

step 1) work your way from the outside in on the left hand side staring with log base 2. Rewrite the equation in exponent form: log3(log4x) = 20
step 2) 20 = 1 so, log3(log4x) =1 then rewrite in exponent form again: 31 = log4(x)
step 3) 31 = 3 so, 3 = log4(x) then rewrite...

L= Lauren's savings
F = Fiona's savings
Lauren saved $84 more than Fiona. So...... L = 84 + F
1/5 of Lauren's savings was the same as 3/8 of Fiona's. So...... (1/5)L = (3/8)F
Now you have a system of equations. the first equation is already solved for L, so you can plug...

So to graph using a table, the first step is...well... make a table. so you have a column of x and y. under the x column write down a bunch of values you would like to test. I am going to test -2 through 2.
x | y
-2|
-1|
0 |
1 |
2 |
Next, we have to plug each...

I'm assuming your problem looks like this: 4+5*6-3 =? To solve this problem you need to use the order of operations. PEMDAS which stands for Parentheses, exponents, multiply and divide, and lastly add and subtract. You must multiply and divide before you add and subtract so you must do 5*6 first...

Think Order of Operations, PEMDAS, parentheses, exponents, multiply and divide, add and subtract.
First you have to distribute the 5 on the left side and the 9 on the left side to each term in the corresponding parentheses.
5(2z-3)=9(z-3)
5*2z-5*3 = 9*z-9*3
10z-15...

Hey Heather!
log39=2 -->example
3 is the base, 2 is the exponent and 9 is what I call the answer. You can rewrite this expression as 32=9 so you can see that. In the expression you have both of your logs have the same base of 3 and since they are set equal to each...

It can be gravely frustrating when you do not understand something. You may want to give up, you may be fed up, you may say to yourself this just is not be for me, BUT DONâ€™T! You can always figure it out! If you find yourself getting very frustrated take a break for a few minutes, get some food, take your mind off of what you are doing for just 10 minutes. By taking that break your mind can reset...
