(x-y)(y-x) if x=-2 y=3

(-2-3)(3-2)

(-5)(1)=-5

----------------------

(x-y)-(x-y) if x=-2 y=3

(-2-3)-(-2-3)

-5+5=0

------------------------

(-x)+(-y) if x=-2 y=3

(-2)+(-3)=5

----------------------

-xa(x-a) if a =-2 x=4

-4(-2)(-2-4)

8*6=48

and thanks for the help I appreciate it

If I number each...

1) Be careful, you made the same mistake as I mentioned before.

2) Good (you can go straight to zero in the future: a - a = 0; (a+b) - (a+b) = 0)

3) You left out a negative sign again (look to the left). Be careful!

4) You might want to check the bracket on the right.

Good luck!

-a(a-b) if a=-2 b=-7

-2(-2+7)

-2(5)=-10

---------------

(a-x)(-x) if a=2 x=-5

2+5(-5)

7(-5)=-35

_____________________

(x-y)-(y-x) if x=-2 y=-4

(-2+4)+(4-2)

2+2=4

should be 2(-2+7) ; -(-2) = 2vermonstervt said:-a(a-b) if a=-2 b=-7

-2(-2+7)

-2(5)=-10

so answer is +10

ive seen ALOT of the answers u give out to people. ive analyzed u. and guess wat???

YOU DON'T GET ALOT OF THE STUFF RIGHT.

x(x-y) Where

x=-2

and

y=-3

so the problem to solve would be,

-2(-2--3)

2 negatives equal a possitive.

So that would change the problem into:

-2(-2+3)

work within the perenthesis firt. remember pemdas???

-2+3= POSSITIVE 1

now,

-2+1=-1

OKOKOKOKOKOKOK???????

:!: :?: :idea: :arrow: ANSWER= -1

you're ok up to here;

-2+3= POSSITIVE 1

now,

-2+1=-1

NO. It's -2 times 1, which equals -2 : answer is -2

-2(1) means MULTIPLY

Now go away, you little brat; quit disturbing the site and confusing

the people who are asking for help...
