I don't know what Algebra you're learning, but you never assume parenthesis...

You can't just assume there's a parenthesis when you put an algebraic equation on a computer. You can get so many different combination of formulas. On the other hand...if you writing on paper and its something like x-2 then you assume parenthesis there. But if it's being divided and you have this:

x/3-y it's the same thing as (x/3) - y (following the little rule of order). You can't just assume it's x / (3-y).

If you had posted it like that it would have worked no doubt:

-4(-8-1)
------
9-5

32 + 4
------
4

36
--
4

9!!!!!!!!

okay, try this

-x***** -4****** -18
_____ - ____ = __________
(-x+3) *(x-3)* *(x-3)(x+3)*

I dont really know if its correct or not. But lets see what people get. Theres suppose to be 2 numbers, but ignore the negative number outcome.


Answer should be.....


10


EDIT - doesnt seem like it comes out right...

Okay, ignore the *

I'm confused...Is the -x-4-18 on top of (-x+3)(x-3)?
