Annalyn's Scribe

Today we learned about combining multiplying with addition and subraction. This means, we combined the use of multiplying integers with addition and subrtaction. There are another set of 3 rules that you can follow....
Step 1: Box all of the multiplication *include chaperones or extra - or + signs.
Step 2: Multiply all in the box and get 1 integer per box
Step 3: Put them together and solve

(2)(-3) + 2(-3) - (6)(1) + (3)(4)=
[(2)(-3) ] + [2(-3)] - [ (6)(1)] + [(3)(4)] =
-6 -6 6 12
= -18+12= -6

This is multiplying with addition and subraction...


Algebra is just like all that stuff we did last year.. it's practically a review =)

Remember a variable is the unknown quality; x+2= ...... x is the variable
An expression is x+2 with no equal sign!
An equation is x+2= ...... it has an equal sign!
A co-efficent is 3x+2=.... the 3 is the co-efficent because it is infront of the variable
A constant is x+2 ...... 2 is the constant because it will always be the constant number that appears in the equation or expression
Substitution is replacing the varibale with a given/known quantity.
4x; where x is 4
= 4 (4)
= 16

Translation means translating math to english words, it is best known to use + as add or increase and - to be used as subtract or decrease.
x+9 ; is a number increased by nine
6x-8 ; is a number multiplied six times decreased by eight.

This stuff is so easy! Mr Pointon taught it to us last year.... you could only remember if you were paying attention! =)

Tomorrow's scribe is.... Marielou!!!!! Good Luck! =)
