Solve (-18) + (6)

The answer is -12 When adding integers with different signs... 1. Subtract the numbers and temporarily ignore the positive or negative signs before the numbers. 18-6= 12. 2. Give the answer the sign of largest number in the question. In this problem, 18 is the largest number in the problem. There is a negative in front of the 18. So the answer is -12

Find the lowest common denominator(LCD) of 2/3 and 4/6.

The common denominator is 6. To find the common denominator... 1. First list the multiples(times tables) of both denominators( the bottom numbers in the fractions). 3, 6, 9, 12,15 etc.. 6, 12, 18, 24, etc.. Which number is the lowest common number in both lists? The answer is 6. So 6 is the lowest common multiple and lowest common denominator.

### Subject: English

What is a homophone? Please give and example.

A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word, but is spelled differently. For example, the words see and sea. Consider these 2 sentences...A. I see the rabbit in the field. B. I sea the rabbit in the field. Sentence B is considered to have the incorrect spelling of sea because the word is used incorrectly. This "sea" is a large body of salt water. The correct usage is "see". See means to observe or to look.
