Question:

How do I conjugate a Spanish command?

Inactive
Marina G.

There are two different conjugations for formal and informal commands. Let's take the verb 'hablar' to use as our first example. For the informal positive command, remove the r from the verb to get 'habla'. For the informal negative command, since it is an -ar verb, change the conjugation to an 'e' and add an 's' to get 'no hables'. For the formal positive command, again change the -ar verb to an 'e' and remove the 'r' to get "hable". For the formal negative command, simply put a 'no' in front of the formal positive command to get 'no hable'. This pattern can be applied to all commands (with a few irregular exceptions), changing -ar verbs to 'e' and -er/-ir verbs to 'a'.

Question:

The measure of one supplementary angle is half the measure of the second. What is the measure of each angle?

Supplementary angles=180º Let x=one angle The other angle must = 1/2x So, x + 1/2x = 180 Combine like terms: 1 + 1/2 = 3/2 ----> 3/2x = 180 Isolate x: 2/3 • 3/2x = 180 • 2/3 x = 120 One angle = 120 Other angle = 120/2 = 60 Check Answer: 120 + 60 = 180

Example: x-2y= 14 and x+3y=9 Solve for x in terms of y: x-2y=14 ----> x= 14+2y Plug in this value for x into other equation: x+3y=9 ------> 14+2y+3y=9 Combine like terms: 14+5y=9 Solve for y: 5y = -5-----> y = -1 Plug back into first equation and solve for x: x-2(-1)=14 ---> x+2=14 ----> x=12 Check solutions: 12-2(-1)=14 ----> 14=14 and 12 + 3(-1 =9 -----> 9=9
