Re: Simplify the following:So, by combining them. x^2  x + x  1 = x^21. is this right Sir? #78 20130723 04:48:51
Re: Simplify the following:The order of operations goes In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #79 20130723 04:55:13
Re: Simplify the following:
Please I am not grasping what you mean. #80 20130723 05:00:12
Re: Simplify the following:You raise a number to a power before you do anything other than a parentheses. This is called the order of operations. The ^0 goes first then the  sign. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Simplify the following:Errr okay. So something like. (x^2  x + x  x^0) #82 20130723 05:10:11
Re: Simplify the following:Yes, that is correct but you simplify it to In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Simplify the following:So know, please let factorise the denominator. #84 20130723 05:37:09
Re: Simplify the following:Hi; Try using FOIL. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #85 20130723 05:43:55
Re: Simplify the following:With the denominator I had: x^3  2x^2 + x. #86 20130723 05:49:30
Re: Simplify the following:That is correct. When you combine the numerator and the denominator you get: but you are not done because you can simplify further. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Simplify the following:I must factorise the denominator, and here I go: #88 20130723 06:28:46
Re: Simplify the following:That is correct! Very good. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #89 20130723 06:42:57
Re: Simplify the following:Do you mean you can simplify further?. #90 20130723 06:46:50
Re: Simplify the following:Thank you very much indeed Sir!, in fact you're darling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #91 20130723 06:53:37
Re: Simplify the following:You are welcome and please call me bobbym. Good night, I need rest. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Simplify the following:Please help me solve the following, I can solve, but the 6 has become my headache, I can't figure out how to go about the 6. b) Please, the has square root on it. Thanks in advance. Son. Last edited by EbenezerSon (20130723 22:45:00) #94 20130723 22:57:25
Re: Simplify the following:Hi; Is that what you have? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #95 20130723 23:33:48
Re: Simplify the following:No, the top terms are all on one platform. It was accident that I brought a space between the twenty seven and the rest. #97 20130723 23:46:01
Re: Simplify the following:between the six and the three is multiplication sign. that is only problem. #98 20130723 23:47:31
Re: Simplify the following:So this is the problem: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #99 20130723 23:55:38
Re: Simplify the following:you have taken the negative sign after the six. #100 20130723 23:57:23
Re: Simplify the following:I am not following you. Can you copy the problem as it is written? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
