WEEK 7 DQ 2
Hello All,
The equations x=4y+1 and x=4y-1 do not have the same solution because there is no
solution; they are parallel lines.
If I had to explain the solution to these equations to someone that does not know
anything about math I would use a

Hello All,
After reading this weeks materials we find that Prime Numbers are a natural
number greater than 1 whose only factors are it-self and 1; there are infinitely many
prime numbers. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, and 19 are the prime number
Week 1
Section 5.2
Combining Like terms
This section of chapter 5 deals with adding and subtracting polynomials. What will be reviewed in
this post are the two different methods used in order to achieve the answer, the vertical method and
horizontal metho
Week 1
Section 5.2
Area of a figure
Have you ever had to buy carpet for your home or perhaps buy paint for a room? If you have,
then you experienced the concept of area. When you bought the carpet, you had to first measure
the length of the room and the w
Week 2
Section 6.2
GCF and Trinomials when a = 1
This section will review the concept of the Greatest Common Factor and factoring trinomials.
Recall from 6.1 that the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) is a greatest term (a number, a variable,
or both) that can
Week 2
Section 6.1
More GCF and beginning of Grouping
When you factor recall that you are looking for common terms to factor (divide) out. Some may
be obvious while others may take more time.
Recall that the first step to factoring is checking for the Gre
Week 2
Section 6.2
Trinomials when a = 1
So far the discussions this week have pertained to:
Factoring using the Greatest Common Factor (always check this first)
Grouping (use this when you have four terms)
Before we begin let me digress a bit with a few
Week 2
Section 6.1
Definition and Implementing GCF
In the first week of this class we explored three of the four basic operations: Adding,
Subtracting, and Multiplying Polynomials. While we briefly discussed the division this week will
explore it in depth

Hello all,
In this discussion I want to review
a) the definition of a polynomial,
b)how to determine how many terms and variables the polynomial contains
c) determi

Hello All,
In the figure below, lines PQ and RS are parallel and the lines l and m are parallel.
In the figure shown below, the lines AB and EF are perpendicular to each other.
Hello All,
Parallel Lines are distinct lines lying in the same plane and they never intersect
each other. Parallel lines have the same slope.
In the figure below, lines PQ and RS are parallel and the lines l and m are parallel.
Perpendicular lines are li
WEEK 6 DQ 2
Hello All,
Depends on the equations. If one is already in the form x = (expression in y) or y =
(expression in x) then substitution is easiest. Just plug in that expression for x or y.
Three main methods come to mind:
Substitution method

WEEK 4 DQ 2
Hello All,
If a line has no y-intercept, then it is a vertical line in the form x=c, where c is a constant
other than 0. Although lines can be added to scatter charts, they will not connect all of
the data collected. A line on a scatter chart
WEEK 3 DQ 1
Hello All,
After reading the text we find that solving linear inequalities is closely related to
solving linear equations because equality is the boundary between greater than and
less than. The techniques are very similar in solving the equat

Hello All,
There are four steps that are always useful when solving an equation. The
first step to solving an equation would be to simplify the equation by using
distributive property where necessary and combining like terms. The
second step w

Hello All,
The four steps for solving a math problem that we have learned from our text are: Step
one, read the problem carefully and make sure you understand it. Step two, write
equations that relates the quantities to your problem. Step thre
