### Subject: Basic Math

Darlene ate 3/5 of her pizza. How much pizza can Darlene share with her sister?

The pizza can be represented by a circle. Before a circle is divided into fractions it can be thought of as a whole or 1. So if Darlene took away 3/5 of the pizza we can write this equation like 1 - 3/5 which when solved should give you the amount of pizza Darlene can share with her sister. Since we need a common denominator to solve this equation, multiply 1 by 5 which gives you 5 and that gives you the numerator. The denominator is also 5 because 5/5 gives you one. So your new equation is 5/5 - 3/5 which gives you 2/5. This is your answer and tells you the portion of the pizza that Darlene can give to her sister.

### Subject: Algebra

Solve for x if 5x + 3 = 7x - 1

First, we need to collect like terms. All numbers should be on one side and all variables should be on the other side. Remember to change signs when they cross the equal sign. The new equation we get is 3 + 1 = 7x - 5x. By simplifying this, we get 4=2x. Now to get the result we have to divide both sides of the equation by 2 because we want x by itself. So in this case after we divide both sides by 2 we get x = 2 and this is your answer.
