Is French also responsible for the crazy pronunciation rules of English???

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.

Hehe. Ne le fais pas, Giant l'a déjà traduit pour moi. En fait, merci à toi, parce que j'ai appris beaucoup de nouveau vocabulaire. Alors, je n'ai pas fait beaucoup de choses intéressantes. J'avais trop de devoirs et je n'ai pas bien dormi 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.

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)

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) (x4)
(x3) (x9)
(x+10)*
Don't laugh at me, plz

It does get harder...
"remove brackets and simplify"
(x+4) (x2)
(x+1)* + (x+4)*
"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)
3(2x+1) + 2 (x1) = 23
(x+3)(x+1)=2x

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 homelounge? honesly don't know how I passed GCSE Maths with close to 0 knowledge of das Algebra

(x+10)*
Don't laugh at me, plz
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 45 = 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+42x8 = 4x4
(x+3) (x4)... 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*+3x4x12 = x*x12.
(x3) (x9)... same principle.
times x 9
x x* 4x
3 3x +27 (negative times negative = positive)
so x*4x3x+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
Ignore all previous language rules when learning a language otherwise you're hindered.
That is also true!

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.

I'm ON MY IPOD this is why I can't display my newly developed maths skills to Mastermind Aquismo Unlimited
Astonishing! For someone who is so good at maths, you can't "work things out" from context for shiat!
