### Solving Equations

ax=b
3x = 0.6 <-- you need to divide both sides by 3
3x/3 = 0.6/3
x=0.2

LS RS check ;
3x=0.6
3(0.2)
0.6

x/a = b <-- you can multiply (a)(b)
x/5 = 0.3
5(x/5) = 5(0.3)
x = 1.5

LS RS check ;
x/5 = 0.3
x = 1.5/0.3

a/x = b
3.3/x = 1.1
x(3/3) = 1.1x
3.3/1.1 = 1.1x/1.1
3=x <--You can do it like this or ...
x=3 <-- this is the more proper way

LS RS ;
3.3/x = 1.1
3.3/3
1.1

2x = 3/4
Divide 2 by itself = 3/4 . 2/1
x = 3/4 x 1/2 . 2/1 x 1/2 makes 0.
3/4 x 1/2 = 3/8

LS RS check ;
2x = 3/4
2/1(3/8) =
6/8
3/4.

another way to the previous question is ...
2x/1 = 3/4
(2x)(4) = 3
8x/8 = 3/8
x = 3/8

-2 1/2x = -3 1/2 <-- make into a proper fraction
-5/2x = -7/2
x = -7/-5

another way of doing it ;
-5/2x = -7/2
-5/2 x -2/5
x = 7/5

and another way ...
-5/2x = -7/2
-5x(2) = 2(-7)
-10x/-10 = -14/-10
x = 14/10 or 7/5

### More Practice on Chapter 7

Today in math class we did different kinds of questions that will be on the test.

First we were given a question to find the area of rectangle with a missing piece using polynomials.

There are two ways to figuring out the area of this shape. First way is to break up the shape into 3 pieces, and add Areas 1 and 2, and subtract area 3.

The second way is to pretend the missing piece is there (area 1) so it makes a whole rectangle, then subtract area 2 (missing piece) to area 1. I chose to do this method because it seemed like a faster way for me.

l = 8x - 4 + 4x + 9 = 12x +5
w = 6x + 2 + 3x - 5 = 9x - 3

A1 = lw
= (12x + 5)(9x -3)
= (12x)(9x) + (12x)(-3) + (5)(9x) + (5)(-3)
= 108x^ - 36x + 45x - 15

A2 = lw
= (8x - 4)(3x -5)
= (8x)(3x) + (8x)(-5) + (-4)(3x) + (-4)(-5)
= 24x^ - 40x -12x + 20
= 24x^ - 52x + 20

A1 - A2
= 108x^ + 9x -15 - (24x^ - 52x + 20)
= 108x^ +9x - 15 -24x^ +52x - 20
= 84x^ + 61x -35

Therefore, the area of the shape is 84x^ + 61x - 35.

The second question was a triangle. This was much simpler because it didn't contain a missing piece.

A = bh/2
= (8x +4)(5x)/2
= (8x)(5x) + (4)(5x)
= 40x^ + 20x/2
= 40x^/2 + 20x/2
= 20x^ + 10x

The area of the triangle is 20x^ + 10x.

The third question was to find the width of the rectangular prism.

V = lwh
48x³ = (2x)(w)(3x)
48x³ = 6x^
w = 48x³/6x^
w = 8x

The width of the rectangular prism is 8x.

The fourth question is similar to the first one, except with different values. Again, I used the A1-A2 method.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

The area of the shape is 26x^ - 35x - 12.

The fifth question is finding the ratio of the rectangle to the circle. This won't be on the test but it's better to know it now for future references.

r = d/2
r = 6x/2
r = 3x

rectangle / circle
= lw / pi r^
= 6x(12x) / pi(3x)^
= 72x^/pi 9x^
= 8 / pi

The last question was to find the ratio of the small circle to the large circle.

So/Lo = pi r^/pi r^
= pi(2x)^/pi(4x)^
= 4x^/16x^
= 4/16
= 1/4

Solve:
1. 3(5x + 3) - (10x - 6)
= 15x +9 - 10x + 6
= 5x + 15

2. (1/2t)^ 3t
= (1/2t)(1/2t)(3t)
= 1/4t^(3t)
= 3/4t³

Remember:
Always use the FOIL(First, Outside, Inside, Last) method when multiplying
When subtracting polynomials, (-) before the 2nd polynomial means to multiply (-1) to each term. (Change each sign to its opposite)

### Ryan's math blog post

Scalene: all sides, all angles are different

Isosceles: 2 sides, 2 angles the same

Equilateral: all sides, all angles the same

An example of finding the area of a triangle:

We also learned more about solving algebraic expressions.
For example: 2(5+x)= 2(5) + 2(x)

= 10 + 2x

A common mistake is adding or subtracting 10 by 2x because they are unlike terms.

A new diagram for finding the answer of 2(5+x) is:

Inside the box, the top part is the expression and the bottom part is the answer.

Another example is: 2x(3x^2 + 4x -y)

=6x^3 + 8x^2 - 2xy

### Multiplying and Dividing Monomials.

In class we learned how to multiply and divide monomials. We started off by doing some easy integer questions.

Multiplying monomials:

To start off we did a four questions they were:

(3)(2)= 6

(-4)(4)= -16

(-7)(-3)=21

(5)(-6)= -30

then we got to harder questions

3(2x)= 6x "this means 3 groups of 2x"

we had to model it after wards

-4(3x)=-12x

(-3y)(-2x)= 6xy

"I think that the answer turned out to be xy because if you multiply two numbers with different variables you're answer has to have a degree of two."

(3x)(-3x) = -9x^2 (squared)

"This is one became squared because if you multiply two variables and they are both the same you get 2nd degree or squared"

Dividing Monomials:

Similar to Multiplication we had to do some questions.

6/3= 3

-8/4=(-2)

16/-8= -2

-15/-3= 5.

6x/3= 2x

How to model division monomials.

very similar to the multiplication model.

-4xy/-2x= 2y

"how?''

'' since there are two x's both of them get canceled out, leaving you with just the variable y''

-6y^2/2y= -3y

"since there were two y's on the first one, one gets canceled out and only one is left"

Not everything can get modeled for example:

-6^3/ -2x= 3x^2

"The reason for that is because we don't have anything to represent a cube."

### Rise and Run

January 27, 2012's class

Chapter 6

In class we learned more about finding the equation of a graph using rise and run. We had many examples.

Now we know what m is, we can put that in our equation to find y.
y=mx+b
Remember the m is the slope or gradient and the b is the y intercept.
The m will be 4/7 and the b will be 1.
y=4/7x+1

We put the results in a table:

Here's how we got the y using the equation:
y=mx+b
=4/7x+1
= 4/7(1)+1 (you multiply 4/7 by 1)
=4/7+1 (you add 1 to 4/7)
=1 4/7

y=mx+b
=4/7x+1
=4/7(2)+1
=8/7=1 (simplify 8/7 to 1 1/7)
=1 1/7+1
=2 1/7

We also did a problem where b=0.

Since b=0, then in the equation there doesn't need to be +b. We used 1 and 14 for x.
y=mx
=2/3x
=2/3(1)
=2/3

y=mx
=2/3x
=2/3(14)
=28/3 (simplify 28/3 to 9 1/3)
=9 1/3

You call them by where they go through the line

Positive added to positive is always positive, adding negative to negative is negative also. Adding to positive, keep sign of integer with greatest absolute value. positive added to negative do as negative added to positive.

Here are some examples:
1) 1+1 = 2
2) -2+-2 = -4
3) -3+2 = -1
4) 5+-2 = 3

Multiplying Integers:
Positive multiplied with positive is positive, however negative multiplied by negative is positive, negative multiplied with positive is negative, and positive multiplied by negative is always negative.

Here are some examples:
1) (2)(2) = 4
2) (-6)(-2)= 12
3)(-3)(3)= -9
4) (3)(-3)= -9

6x²+3x-4y+5+5y+6x-7x²-7 (Remember that colours represent like terms)

Step 1 ) Collect like terms in order of degree and alphabet.

6x²-7+3x+6x-4y+5y+5-7

Step 2) Simplify

-x²+ax+y-2.

Removing brackets when combining like terms:
(4x+3) + (-6x-3)

Step 1) Look at the sign (+,-) in front of each bracket, if it is a (+) leave the signs in the bracket the same, remove the (+) and rewrite the question.

Example:

4x+3-6x-3

Step 2) Combine like terms
4x-6x+3-3

Step 3) Simplify

-2x

Here's another one:

(-3x+4) + (+5x-7) = -3x+4+5x-7
= -3x+5x+4-7
= 2x-3

(Remember to always write your work on the right!)

Combining like terms with negative brackets:

(-6x+7) - (-4x+2)

Step 1) Look at the sign (+,-) in front of each bracket, if it is a (-), multiply each term by negative one

-6x+4x4+7-2

Step 2) Combine like terms

-6x+4x+7-2

Step 3) Simplify

-2x+5

### Degrees and Terms

Degree of a term: Is the sum of it's exponents.
Examples:

Degree of a polynomial: Is the greatest degree of any of the terms in a polynomial
Examples:

Like terms will have the same variables and the same degree of variable or be constant
Example: 6x^2 - 3x^2y

Unlike terms do not share a common variable or degree of variable
Example: 6xy^2 - 3x^2y
