Question:

Correct the grammatical errors: My mom asked do you like pizza? I shouted yes, of course!

Ryan V.
Answer:

Step 1: In this case, the sentences use dialogue. This means that someone is speaking in the sentence. Whenever someone is speaking in your writing, you need to use quotation marks. You can see I have added quotation marks to the sentence below: My mom asked "do you like pizza?" I shouted "yes, of course!" Notice that the quotation marks surround the part of the sentence where the dialogue, or talking, is happening. Quotation marks go outside the punctuation. Step 2: When dialogue starts, we need to capitalize the first letter of the dialogue. My mom asked "Do you like pizza?" I shouted "Yes, of course!" Step 3: Before the dialogue, we need to add a comma after it shows who is speaking. For example. Look at the two places where I have inserted commas at the sentence below: My mom asked, "Do you like pizza?" I shouted, "Yes, of course!" Solution: My mom asked, "Do you like pizza?" I shouted, "Yes, of course!"

Question:

Solve for n: 2(5+n)=3+11

Ryan V.
Answer:

Step 1: First, simply the equation by adding the numbers on the right side of the equation: 2(5+x)=14 Step 2: Continue simplifying by multiplying 2 by the number and variable in the parenthesis. 2 x 5=10 2 x n=2n Therefore, 10+2n=14 Step 3: Now the goal is to get the variable "n" by itself. Subtract 10 from each side of the equation. 10-10+2n=14-10 Therefore, 2n=4 Step 4: Again, the goal is to get the variable "n" by itself. When there is a number next to a variable, it means that you are multiplying that number to the variable. In this case, it means: 2 x n=4 In order to get the variable by itself and solve for n, we need to divide each side by 2. 2n÷2=4÷2 Since 2÷2=1, and 4÷2=2, We now know that 1n=2 or n=2 Solution: n=2 We can prove that this answer is correct by putting it back in our equation: 2(5+x)=11+3 2(5+2)=14 2(7)=14 14=14

Question:

Solve for n: 4/5 ÷ 1/3 =n?

Ryan V.
Answer:

In order to divide fractions, you should multiply the fraction inverse: 4/5 x 3/1 multiply the numerators: 4x3=12 multiply the denominators: 5x1=5 Solution: 12/5 or twelve fifths is the answer to this equation.
