    Désolé XD Il était le matin, je ne pensais pas, j'aurais dû écrire quelque chose de plus facile à comprendre ! alors, qu'est-ce que tu as fait aujourd'hui, quelles activités ? est-ce que tu as fait quelque chose d'intéressant?
    Hehe. Ne t'en fais pas, Giant le m'a traduit déjà. En fait, merci à toi, parce que j'ai appris beaucoup de vocabulaire nouveau. Alors, je n'ai pas fait beaucoup de choses intéressantes (I'm trying to say I didn't do many interesting things, can you please help me?). J'avais trop de devoirs et je n'ai pas dormi bien le soir dernier. Par conséquent, aujourd'hui je me suis levé très tard. La seule chose intéressante que j'ai fait est aller à ce forum.

    I finally managed to download Rosetta Stone.

    Duolingo est bonne and all, but about time I tried using a different platform at the same time.

    Merci! So traduire uses pour instead of an indirect object?

    Not too sure, I may have anglicised it What you originally said translated to "He translated me it" and even then, the pronoun "le" goes after "me" so it would be "Il me l'a traduit" which I don't think is correct (not 100% sure, may need verification)

    OK, I see. Well, anyway, thanks for the other corrections!

    Oui, d'accord, et il utilise trop de vocabulaire que je ne connais pas.
    I have quite a few... Do you wish to introduce me to the appropriate section der TSR, or would you be kind enough to grant me the pleasure of comfortably remaining in my beloved home-lounge? honesly don't know how I passed GCSE Maths with close to 0 knowledge of das Algebra

    If you're offline right now Fishfinger...then Aquismo, Octo & all those other linguist TSRians with a superior knowledge of Maths, (i.e. everyone else here) FEEL FREE TO HELP ME!!

    Okk so... simplify

    2x + 3y + 7x - 2y...The answer is not as simple as 9x + 1y IS IT???
    a* + 3a + 4 + a* + 7a - 5 key: * = "squared sign"

    Multiply out the bracket

    x(x + 4)

    Simplify

    2(3x+2) -2 (x+4)
    (x+3) (x-4)
    (x-3) (x-9)
    (x+10)*

    Don't laugh at me, plz

    "Solve the following"

    12 = 2x - 8
    3x -7 = -10
    6 - 2a = 3
    x + 2 = 3.1
    a - 3 = 3a - 7 (^_^) (ignore this ans the face)

    No problem! Let's begin

    2x + 3y + 7x - 2y... the answer IS that simple. although the 1 can be omitted before y because if there is no coefficient 1 is assumed.

    a* + 3a + 4 + a* + 7a - 5... you do the same thing as before, put the like terms together, except a* is different to a, despite them both having a. So a* + a* gives 2a*, 3a + 7a gives 10a and 4-5 = -1, so the final answer is 2a* + 10a -1

    x(x + 4)... you simply have to multiply term in the brackets by x, so it becomes (x times x + 4 times x), or x* + 4x

    2(3x+2) ... same principle, except now you have to do it to both brackets. So 2(3x+2) = (2 times 3x + 2 times 2) = 6x+4, and -2 (x+4) (note that the negative must be included) = (-2 times x + -2 times 4) = -2x -8. Now add all of them together and you get 6x+4-2x-8 = 4x-4

    (x+3) (x-4)... now this gets a bit trickier. you have multiply each of the terms in the first bracket with each of the terms in the second bracket. I would draw a table like this

    times x -4

    x x* -4x


    3 3x -12

    So you multiply each term in the left column with each term in the top row, then you add them together. x*+3x-4x-12 = x*-x-12.

    (x-3) (x-9)... same principle.

    times x -9

    x x* -4x


    -3 -3x +27 (negative times negative = positive)

    so x*-4x-3x+27 = x*-7x+27

    (x+10)*... this is the same as (x+10)(x+10), then all you have to do is do the same thing as the previous two quesitons. See if you can do this yourself. If you need help, ask again.

    Really? I find all this to be confusing as you're all English and finding a Germanic language hard :lol:

    Ignore all previous language rules when learning a language otherwise you're hindered.
    :yep: I find French, Spanish and Italian 10000 x easier than German

    That is also true!

    Agreed!

    No sé hablarlo/no lo hablo. Remember saber (almost typed savoir ) is used to say to know how to do something.

    If you want to do squared signs, otherwise known as indices and you're on a pc, use ^[number]. For example, 3 squared = 3^2. If the resulting equation is confusing, you can use brackets around the ^2 or whatever.

    12=2x-8 ; x=10

    3x-7= -10 ; x= -1

    6 - 2a = 3 ; a = 3/2

    x +2 = 3.1 ; x = 1.1
