It's OK I wrote order of operations wrong anyway! laugh

1.  3X_=1+2=_?
The initial question does not really make total sense, since it is say 3 times some number equals 3, which also equals that same number. If I let y = "some number"
 
3Xy=1+2= y
3Xy=3=y
dividing by y
3 = 3/y = 1
There is no answer, since y=3 will make the right part correct, but not the left side.
 
I *think* the question is asking  3X_=1+2, solve for _
Letting y=_
3Xy=1+2
3Xy=3
Divide each side by 3
1Xy=1
y=1
_=1
Answer checks out.
 
2.  4+1=_X6=_?
 
4 + 1 = yX6
5=yX6
divide each side by 6
5/6 = yX1
y = 5/6
Answer checks out.
 
3.  22-__=20+1X1=_?
 
22 - y = 20 + 1X1
simplify right side
22 - y = 20 + 1
22 - y = 21
subtract 22 from both sides
(22 - 22) - y = 21 - 22
0 - y  = -1
-y = -1
divide both sides by -1 to remove the -1 sign
-y/-1 = -1/-1
y = 1
Answer checks out.

Whizkid, The answers are (in order)

3

30

21

Actually SIMPLIFY instead of making nothing out of it. I don't want a lecture, if I did, i'd disobey someone. so get it together and READ IT. that's all u had to do.

No clue how those answers are right, but will take your word on it...
Im not tryin to be mean or anything,

whizkid, maybe you could try to

OPEN UR MIND A BIT

I just don't understand the question, sorry ...

22-__=20+1x1=_?

The answer given was: 21

I see how 20 + 1x1 = 21

But the first part, 22 - ___ would not be right with 21 as the __ answer, since 22 - 21 = 1  

 

My math teacher always says that to do math efficiently:

 

You don't always have to try to make a big deal and try to calculate the answer.

She says:

"Use what operations u already know. (Like x, +, - like those.)"

See what I mean?
