### Subject: Real Estate

In a residential transaction in Texas between a buyer and seller, who will pay for the buyer's agent brokerage fees?

The seller! The seller covers all brokerage fees. It is typical that a buyer's agent will receive 3% commission and the seller's agent will also receive 3%, meaning the seller pays a total of 6%. So as a seller determining the selling price, he or she must calculate this brokerage cost into their selling price.

### Subject: Geometry

Is the following statement true or false? An equiangular triangle is an isosceles triangle.

True! An equiangular triangle means all the angles of the triangle are the same, and when all three angles are the same, all sides are equivalent as well. Additionally, for something to be isosceles, 2 of the three sides have to be equivalent. So in this case, an equiangular triangle contains at least 2 equivalent sides because all 3 sides are the same!

Ronald bought slippers for $65. This was $27 less than double what he spent for a leather jacket. How much was his leather jacket?

Every word problem has an unknown number or variable. For this situation/problem, it is the cost of the leather jacket. For the unknown number, let x represent it. You can use any number you wish, but x is widely universal for an unknown variable. So now, we solve for x. Let x represent how much Ronald paid for the leather jacket. The problem states that double the cost of the jacket less $27 is the price of the slippers, $65. Here is the equation: 1) 2x − 27 = 65. 2) 2x = 65 + 27 (Using PEMDAS method, move the 27 from the left side to the right side of the equation by adding 27 to both sides) 2x = 92. 3) Now divide both sides by 2 to have x by itself x = 92 / 2 4) x = 46. The leather jacket costs $46!
