### Subject: Basic Math

I'm having trouble moving like terms onto each side of the equal sign, what's the best way to think through that process?

This can definitely be tricky, but let's simplify it the most we can. Let's start term by term. Forget about all the numbers without the x variable attached to them, and let's look at just our x's. From here, it's simple subtraction, and it really doesn't matter which side of the equal sign we end up on, etc....

### Subject: ACT

I'm having a lot of trouble with narrowing down this science section question with tables to look at down to 2 options instead of 4. How do I do that?

I totally get that, the graphs and tables can become very confusing looking back and forth from the question to the table, it can all leave your brain very quickly. What we're first going to do is figure out exactly what the question is asking, and only pay attention to those parts of the table. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by multiple rows and columns, but usually these table questions only require looking at one tiny box, so let's find which box that is, etc...

### Subject: Anatomy

I don't understand the sliding filament model at all, how do all the fibers move together?

The sliding filaments can definitely be very tricky to understand. Let's first look at this diagram that shows all of the moving parts. Actin and Myosin are the two myofilaments shown. They work together by associating and dissociating with each other by using ATP. Let's take a closer look at that actual process by looking at this diagram of the power stroke.
