# Copying math problems correctly

OronD: Newbie's question was -11-(-8). In your explanation you incorrectly copied the problem as -11-(8). These are not the same problem, are not worked the same way, and do not have the same answer. If you'll go back and start by copying the problem correctly, I'll bet you get the same explanation that I did. Thanks. Dogtac69

Does it really matter?  Newbie asks dozens of irrelevant questions every day.  He/she is a kook, or a crank, and isn't really interested in getting correct answers.  Newbie simply wants attention.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Hi Dogtac,
I'll go back to the answer and if I find I was wrong I'll plead guilty and even appologise.
Best regards,

Love is the battery of life....

Since then I had the thought it might get you a bit further if I gave an example of how to proceed. If the correct form of the question should have been, for example, (5/8 ...

### Solve: -8x^2y -2xy^3

What you posted is a mathematical expression. As it is you can't "solve" it. You have 2 variables (x and y) and thus it requires 2 equations to enable us to solve it. As you sure know an equation is a mathematical expression that equals to something (a value or another mathematical expression).
