I This can be a thread for any math equation help needed.

3x+2ab = 4x-5ab

#2 Posted by !Drake! (1908 posts) - -

I know ther is someone on here who can do it

#3 Posted by Methos (40531 posts) - -

:EDIT: check that with G-Man, but that looks right to me

#4 Posted by Methos (40531 posts) - -

3x + 2ab = 4x - 5ab

5ab + 2ab = 4x - 3x

7ab = x

Thanks M!

#6 Posted by !Drake! (1908 posts) - -

lol I need the variables solved

A=

B=

X=

#7 Posted by Methos (40531 posts) - -

what?

you don't need the variables for base algebra

Let ab = z

3x + 2z = 4x - 5z; now subtract 3x from both and add 5z to both

7z = x ; but z = ab so...

7ab = x

Proof

3(7ab) + 2ab = 4(7ab) - 5ab?

21ab + 2ab = 28ab - 5ab?

23ab = 23ab

Job Done

You good at Statistical Methods? I may need your help in June. LOL.

ha, I have no math until second semester next year

high school or college assimilation?

College for me. I'm retaking Statistical Methods in June. I failed it.

idk if statistical methods and statics are the same, but thats the only math course i've taken thus far in college

wow, I feel young

If you've had to go over Proportions, Means (Ho, Ha, and whether or not to reject them), Confidence Intervals, Averages, Standard Deviation, and the like... It's the same...

Never took College Algebra or Mathematical Modeling?

Now i feel old... i took university, degree level, Physics...

then again there is G-Man who actually teaches High School Math

I was told my test scores put me high enough to make College algebra optional...basically i skipped it and went to stats....and then in stats all the work was done on the computer so i had my roomate do it for me and i did his Botany for him...i'm a bit of a science nerd

he teaches High school math? YESS, I have someone to ask if i get screwed over in calculs

You Know Its Funny. Cause all the Statistics and College level Math I took in College. I dont even use any of that crap on my job. I use basic math. But not the advanced stuff.

See, we took Stats the old-fashioned way. On paper.

OMG i know assimilation...i can kill with numbers, but throw a circle or a rectangle into the equation and i get lossed

Exactly. It's stupid as f@ck. I'm an Exercise Physiology major, working to be a physical therapist. I'm not even gonna use Stats at all in that field.

Wish I had that blessing at the beginning of the Spring semester... LOL.

And another thing ! Why cant Colleges give more rebate money back for Books that you return ? You buy a Math Workbook for \$ 165.00 and get \$ 60.00 back ? Come On ! At least meet me half way !

#32 Posted by pixelized (49086 posts) - -

LMAO...sorry for the ill fate you suffered static.

sin, cosin, tangent...they screwed me harder than that time in the back of a black chevy camaro.....nevermind

Hell f@cking yeah... A lot of people in college are broke. But, they don't see that. College is a scam. That's all it is.

Thought these were easy.

I just know I'll get a good use out of this thread.....

But probably not in the near future, because this is my last week in school.

Not really.

I have final exams every day this week.

where WS when i need her lol

Well, haha then.

thats the basis of Quantum Physics...

it's really scary when you get into it though, it really alters your world views

Assimilation says:

"just the name quantum physics scares me"

Quantum physics is a branch of science that deals with discrete, indivisible units of energy called quanta as described by the Quantum Theory. There are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory:

1. Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units.

2. The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves.

3. The movement of these particles is inherently random.

4. It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is.

5. The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in.

it's not scary lol, though Quantum Physics is more magic than math...
