    1. Read the follow-up email with the correction?

      We did section 2-7 in class today... I'm confident you can figure it out.

    I am experiencing some Brain Traffic on Question 17 and I'm writing this to make sure I don't screw it up, on Question 17 the Problem is Stated as "14+3n=8n-3(n-4)
    1"

    I looked and saw it on another question but saw no operation sign or symbol anywhere, is the one a typo or does it mean something?

    1. Dear Longest Name Ever,

      Just Ignore the other numbers and do "14+3n = 8n -3(n-4)"

    2. oops... looks like I gave you a copy of the answer key... oh well... I was going to email the answer key to you anyway... try to ignore the answers and do the problems... it's the PROCESS that counts... I will typically supply you with answers for most (almost all) of your homework problems.

  3. Mr. C,

    Do we put the POE's on this homework?

  4. Hello all,

    I had a question about 16-19 on the practice packet. For the question do we solve for the variable or with the variable since the answer is right there.

    1. Pretend you don't know the answer and just solve. Your answer key is embedded in the packet.. woo-hoo... maybe I'll make the same mistake on the Chapter 2 Test???

      No walls
      Just... no
      Unless you're a Trump fan, then I respect that
      If you were saying it as a joke, then ok
      Just tell me
      Because that name triggers me
      Ok... I'm rambling at this point, so bye...

  5. I am confused on means and extremes. I watched the video on math chamber academy and I'm still confused!

    1. Dear Fuzzy,

      There is nothing to understand, really. It's just a pair of identifiers. In a two ratio proportion, the upper left numerator and the lower right denominator are called the EXTREMES and the the lower left denominator and the upper right numerator are called the MEANS. They are just names. Can I call you UN-Confuzzled now??

  6. Hi Mr C, I have a question on number 3 of pg 127 in our books. The question is:w+3/4=w/2. Would you have a blob of w+3 and do the cpp of 4/1+w/2?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You need to include parentheses in your question... as written, it doesn't make much sense. I think you need to watch the third of the three "2-7" videos. Have you watched that?

      Delete
    2. Thanks mr C, the video helped a lot. The problem with the parens is this: (w+3)/4=w/2.

      Delete
    3. Just treat every proportion like (a)/(b) = (c)/(d) and follow CPP (i.e. ad = bc) and you will be just ducky.

    Mr. C for question 23 on page 127, 8/p = 3/10 for our answer can we just leave it as p=80/3 or do we have to put it as p=26 2/3(aka 26.6666666666666666666666666...)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 80/3 works for me. 26 2/3 is also fine... I am not a fan of 26.66 repeating. When a problem starts as a fractions, the answer should be left as a fraction (unless otherwise requested).

      Delete
  8. In class we did a similar problem and Mr.C said you can just leave it as a fraction.

    Do you want x= as my answer or 90=5x

    1. A proportion is simply a specific type of equation. Solving proportions is just like solving equations. You GOTSK to isolate the variable, i.e. "x= "...

  13. I don't think there's an answer key (yet), but if he didn't post it yet, he probably won't post it.

    1. Here is the problems though:
      Solve each equation, check each answer:
      16. -8x - (3x + 6) = 4 - x
      17: 14 + 3n = 8n - 3(n - 4)
      Determine whether each is an identity or whether it has no solution:
      18: 4(3m + 4) = 2(6m + 8)
      19. 5x + 2x - 3 = -3x + 10x
      There are the problems, 2-4 16-19
      (No problemo)

    2. Also, what's with all these long names?? (that gives me an idea...)

    3. People, people. The answers are underneath each problem. There's no separate answer sheet.

  15. Mr.C (or anybody else who knows the answer) i was solving for a variable using POE and I used the double earmuff method but I forgot the official name and I couldn't find it in my notes can you help me

    1. "Double earmuffs" is simply the Multiplication POE twice.
