How do I cite a book when writing in APA format?

APA format follows these rules Author, A. A. (Year of publication). Title of work: Capital letter also for subtitle. Publisher Name. DOI (if available) As an example: Stone, F. (2013).

Find x in the problem 2(x+4)

When dealing with parenthesis, we must remember that we have to distribute across the whole problem. We have to distribute our 2 across x+4. We have to do this because of our order of operations or PEMDAS. Distributing our 2 we get 2*x+(2*4) which equals 2x+8. The solution to our problem is 2x+8.

### Subject: Algebra

Find x 2x+5=x+8

First, to find x you will need to get x on one side of the equation by itself. But remember, we need to keep our equation balanced so whatever we do to one side of the equation, we must do to the other side as well. Start by subtracting 5 from both sides. This gives us 2x=x+3. Then subtract an x from each side as well. We then get x=3. This is the solution to our problem. x=3
