Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:00:05] Welcome to tutor.com

[00:00:16] Let me copy your question on the board

[00:00:42] do you see it on the board?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:01:47] yes

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:00:59] ok

[00:01:04] what is the instruction with this problem?

[00:01:40] what does the problem ask us to do?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:02:31] just to solve it

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:01:45] ok

[00:01:54] do you know how to start with this problem?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:03:19] ummm no that is were i am completely stuck

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:02:46] first we need to simplify the left side

[00:03:01] we need to remove that parenthesis around 2t-1

[00:03:13] to do that, we need to distribute -3 into 2t-1

[00:03:19] do you know how to do that?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:04:59] okay so would it be 6t+3

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:04:25] -6t or +6t?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:05:31] -6t

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:04:46] very good

[00:04:49] let me copy that

[00:05:17] do you know what the next step might be?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:06:53] add 3 to 19

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:06:11] you are right

[00:06:22] so what do we get on the left side of the equal sign?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:07:47] 22-6t

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:07:07] great

[00:07:11] let me copy that on the board

[00:07:30] do you know what to do next?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:08:42] subtract 22 from 10

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:08:01] you are right

[00:08:05] what do we get when we do that?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:09:42] -6t= -12 which then t=2

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:09:01] you are right, good job!

[00:09:12] do you have any questions about this problem?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:10:44] nope. thank you for the help! ðŸ˜Š

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:10:01]
you are welcome

[00:10:08] May I help you with any more questions?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:12:09] okay so what if its a problem like this: 7x-2(3x+4)=15

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:11:28] let me open a new board

[00:11:57] we pretty much follow the same steps

[00:12:07] first we need to remove the parenthesis around 3x+4

[00:12:10] can you give it a try?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:13:35] okay so would you multiply by -2

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:12:49] right

[00:12:53] what do we get when we do that?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:14:31] 7x-6x-8=15

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:13:51] right

[00:14:06] what do we do next?

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:15:27] add 8 to both sides

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:14:40] right

Janeysi (Customer)

[00:15:49] x=23

Aneta A (Tutor)

[00:15:12] good job!
