Hey there, all I'm wanting are clear steps to get to a solution. That's all. I'm by no means expecting a full solution. I'm a person who needs clear and concise steps to get to a solution. I'm sure we all here are aware of the rules of the community, I think we need to allow people the chance to respond, maybe they won't give the answer. If they do, remind them respectfully that that is not within the community guidelines. Do that before you call someone out please. I'd appreciate no arguing in this thread as school is stressful enough, I'm just here to get help to understand the process as clearly as possible so I can tackle my tougher questions. Please do not comment on my thread if your here just to say someone is wrong and not provide a rebuttal in a kind way or if you do not give one at all. If you think someone's "steps to the solution" is not quite right, you can for sure share your own thoughts, but again respectfully please. Thank you all for your time. I really appreciate it! PS I know your just trying to help. I also know you have provided steps and I am very grateful, I just wanted to take the time to gently say this .

She is right however - I'm not allowed to help 'too much' - as I have got in trouble for this before.

I've tried to help on the next page - but I'm sorry, explaining things aren't always my strong point (I get the maths but it's hard to explain due to learning difficulties) so in case the answer on the next page is too confusing, I can try rephrase or I apologise.

Please do not worry! I've actually had a break through thanks to you!

Great - did the explanation above help?!

I can't lie, it's so rewarding to have someone benefit from an explanation - so thanks to you too!

You can come back to me if anything else is difficult to understand!

I was able to clearly identify the factoring and than how I needed to put it to use when cleaning up solutions for the quadratic formula, I'll need to revisit factoring once I get there. RIght now I'm doin the exact roots. The difficulty will for sure increase as I continue through my work!

Go elsewhere online then - there are plenty of websites that will go through step by step for you, TSR is not for this.

Oh ok, thank you. But uh isn't this used for math too.....so how are people supposed to reply and help others?

People post what they've tried and we give hints on the next step. It's not a homework service or for doing questions FOR people.

I literally just said I'm looking for STEPS not asking people to DO it for me. Anyway thank you for the sites you've provided, have a great day.

Oh ok - good!

Did you get the answer?

Well, I'm working on the quadratic formula so not factoring in that yet but I worked through my problem and got it, moving to factoring after because I missed a few days so doing whats fresh in my head than going back to the easier stuff?

You need to show us where you are getting stuck - then we help one step at a time.

It seems that they understand from my non-rule breaking explanation, so I'm struggling to see your problem. As @EeveeSAMA said, there's no point picking a fight and bringing negative energy when it's just counter-productive.

I'm not but the OP is expecting what TSR in't meant for. I've taken time to find weblinks that give them that so why accuse ME of negativity -

The OP needs to try one themselves so we can see where they are getting stuck - slick 'methods' are not what maths is about.

At present you've taught them nothiing

They said the opposite.

Ugh just forget about it - no point arguing

They've not done a question on their own - that is the proof they've understood.

‘I worked through my problem and got it’

‘I was clearly able to identify the factorising’

‘I’ve actually made a break-through thanks to you’

I’m sorry but I politely disagree. I rest my case and don’t wish to discuss this further.

Original post by Muttley79

They need to try with a new question - that's what learning is. This is not an argument btw - it's a discussion. I'm not sure why you assume in every thread that someone disagreeing with your view is arguing!

I'm under the impression that they'd now be able to solve simple quadratics but ok.

Currently not an argument - but I don't want to be involved in one and this discussion is a waste of time and not relevant to this thread anymore, and probably not in the OP's interest either. I don't think I've had (m)any arguments on TSR but ok - I see them as discussions and withdraw before anyone gets upset.

It's mot a waste of time if you now understanding that helping someone with one question is not them learning. It's a step on the way - someone only learns something when they can do any question on that topic ie in this case solve any quadratic by factorising even when it does not look 'standard'.

I politely disagree: I believe that the user would now be able to solve any 'simple' quadratic equation as of right now - they're currently having success with the formula so I don't see a problem and don't accept your opinion.
