hello, I have algebra phobia. Subtracting negative numbers always seem to get me confused.
what do you need help in?
Felix
subtracting a negative....is adding!!
Heather
look at the numbers if they have different signs, it's like subtracting....but you keep the sign of the largest number...
Felix
for example.... 19 + 7.... different signs...subtract.... 12 keep the sign of the "largest" number 19 is bigger than 7.... 19 has the negative sign... Therefore, 12 is your answer...
Felix

find the equation whose roots are 1 and 2
(x  2)(x 1)=0
so equation is x^2x+2=0
Ranu
I believe it's x^23x+2
NerdNamedGerg
because the X's multiply by the 2 and the 1 and than combine like terms
NerdNamedGerg
find the equation whose roots are 1 and 4

ok great. Good to know.
Joan
5x  3x = 1/2  1/3
2x = 1/6
x = 1/12
Ranu
Please help me solve this 10x+14=2x+38
Erica
the previous equation should be
3x = 1/6
x=1/18
Sriram
for the new one
10x + 2x = 38  14
Sriram
10x + 14 = 2x +38
10x + 2x = 38  14
12x = 24
divide both sides by the coefficient of x, which is 12
therefore × = 2
