this didn’t help that much, you should add different types of problem to give the viewers a clue of how to solve them in my opinion

I never listen to my teacher in class lmao, this why I’m looking up videos

Yeah I’m a junior in high school here

How you get 3

so all substitution have an answer

When your teacher doesn’t even teach you for your exam and tells you to go on videos instead

When your teacher doesn’t even teach you for your exam and tells you to go on videos instead

Nobody told me I could just -x when theres 2x I always tried to devide by 2 this makes my life 100% simpler

what did they use to record video

My problems are much more complicated than this

Thank you so much

Cool editting

easy money! I wish I can play game in class!

I don’t derstand where you got the 3 from

if you get rid of the “y” at the end of the problem solving then you do NOT get y = 3; you get 2 = 3. That makes absolutely no sense. if you get rid of y, you have to bring down the 2.

i understand this more than what my teacher discusses, thanks!

Please get a better microphone

Thks

i watched this 1million times and i still don’t get it

?…….

Now I know y math is so hard…..get it?
