Change 1.5 to a percent by multiplying 1.5 by 100%.
College Algebra, Week 1 (Thursday only) In class on Thursday, we only went over linear equations. Simple enough, you move all variables to one side (x) and what you do to one side, you do to the other. −8x+6=22 Ex 16. −6=−6 −8x=16 X=16/−8 X=−2 Example 16 from the book shows us that to find x, we must move 6 to the right side of the equals sign by subtracting 6 from each side. This gives us our last step, divide both sides by -8. This cancels out the -8x on the left, since -8 times -8 equals 1, resulting in a singular value of x. This gives us a final answer of x = -2 We also worked on finding the Lowest Common Denominator to find x. Here’s an example x−1 x x+3 5 +4= 2 +1 To find the LCD, multiply the denominators.
