Problem Solving With Rational Numbers in Decimal Form
Evaluate Each Expression.
A) 3.6 + 2y
C)4.5/q - 4.5/q
For A)Since it has already given me the variable y's number, I will just plug in the numbers to see if the equation is correct.
3.6 + 2y
Just add in what y is which in this case is (-0.5).
3.6 + 2(-0.5)
3.6 + (-1)
The reason why I did multiplication first was because of B.E.D.M.A.S.
For those who do not know what B.E.D.M.A.S is, it means
B = Brackets ()
E = Exponents
D = Division 6/3 is 2
M = Multiplication 2X3 is 6
A = Addition
S = Subtraction
For C) I did the same thing as I did with the first question.
(m - 1.8)(m + 1.8)
Again add what the variable is which is 1.7.
The brackets that are closed together is just basically multiplication.
And for C) It's just the same as A and B.
4.5/q - q/4.5
4.5/-3.6 - (-3.6)/4.5
-1.25 - (-0.8)
Of course ask questions!
I'll answer when ever I can.
