Solving And Checking Equations
In math there are many different types of equations to solve and check. Some of
them are easy and some are hard but all of them have some steps that need to be
followed. To solve the problem 2(7x-4)-4(2x-6)=3x+31 you must follow many steps.
The first thing you will do is use the distributive property to take away the
parentheses. When you use the distributive property, your equation will be 14x-
8-8x+24=3x+31. Then you have to combine like terms. Now that you\'ve combined,
your equation will be 6x+16=3x+31. The next step is to subtract 3x from both
sides. Now your equation will be 3x+16=31. The next step is to subtract 16
from both sides. Your equation has been reduced to 3x=15. The last step is to
divide both sides by 3 and your answer is x=5. There are also many steps needed
to check a problem. First, you rewrite the problem. Under that you write the
problem substituting all the x\'s with 5. Next, you evaluate the problem left of
the equal sign. Then you evaluate the right of the equal sign. If the answers
are both the same, it means you solved the problem right so you put a check mark
next to it.
That is how you solve and check this type of equation.
TrigonometryTrigonometry Trigonometry uses the fact that ratios of pairs of sides of triangles are functions of the angles. The basis for mensuration of triangles is the right- angled triangle. The term trigonometry means literally the measurement of triangles. Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that developed from simple measurements. A theorem is the most important result in all of elementary mathematics. It was the motivation for a wealth of advanced mathematics, such as Fermat\'s Last Theorem and t
Elementary EducationElementary Education Buscaglia Reflection While reading Leo Buscagliašs book, Living, Loving & Learning, I was able to reflect back on some of the experiences I have had in my life that have helped to make me the person I am today, and I was able to look into the future at what I would like to become. I was able to see how well I know myself and what I have to offer others. I was able to see the things I donšt like about myself and determine some of the ways I can make myself better. This is som
Isiah M. WarnerIsiah M. Warner Isiah M. Warner was born in DeQuincy, Louisiana on July 20, 1946. At the age of two, he moved to Bunkie, Louisiana and attended Carver Elementary. His interest in science developed when he orally sampled kerosene to determine why it had an odd smell and was able to produce light. At the age of twelve, he received his first chemistry set. Upon entering Carver high school, Isiah enrolled in every science class available. He graduated valedictorian in June of 1964. During the summer

TeachersTeachers Description of Occupation/Work Performed An Elementary School teacher teaches kindergarten and elementary school student\'s academic, social, and physical skills. They plan age appropriate activities including many hands-on exercises. A teacher will prepare lessons, assign homework, evaluate student performance, and maintain classroom discipline. She or he can use games, music, artwork, films, computers, and other technology to teach children basic skills. All teachers grade papers, pre
Robert BoyleRobert Boyle The English scene of the seventeenth century is a particularly rich one with regard to its contributions to the scientific revolution. The discovery and development of America moved Britain from the edge of the civilized world into the center of the new world, in which the sciences were to play a major role. During this period, in the field of chemistry, theories which offered direct opposition to Aristotelian natural philosophy and Paracelsian principles were rapidly disseminating.
Johann Carl Friedrich GaussJohann Carl Friedrich Gauss Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematician, physicist and astronomer. He is considered to be the greatest mathematician of his time, equal to the likes of Archimedes and Isaac Newton. He is frequently called the founder of modern mathematics. It must also be noted that his work in the fields of astronomy and physics (especially the study of electromagnetism) is nearly as significant as that in mathematics. He also contributed much to crystallography, optic
Acient MathematicsAcient Mathematics The earliest records of advanced, organized mathematics date back to the ancient Mesopotamian country of Babylonia and to Egypt of the 3rd millennium BC. There mathematics was dominated by arithmetic, with an emphasis on measurement and calculation in geometry and with no trace of later mathematical concepts such as axioms or proofs. The earliest Egyptian texts, composed about 1800 BC, reveal a decimal numeration system with separate symbols for the successive powers of 10 (1,
Werner HeisenbergWerner Heisenberg One cannot fully appreciate the work of Werner Heisenberg unless one examines his contributions in the context of the time in which he lived. Werner Karl Heisenberg was born in Wuerzburg, Germany, on December 5, 1901, and grew up in academic surroundings, in a household devoted to the humanities. His father was a professor at the University of Munich and undoubtedly greatly influenced young Werner, who was a student at the Maximilian Gymnasium. Heisenberg had the opportunity to
