Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The first step is to add like terms on each side of the = sign. The only thing you can add is the 1.6q  2.9q and you would get 1.3q So you would have 1.3q  5.7 = 2.3q = 3.8 Do you understand this so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good.. now I always like to get rid of the smallest "x" if I have one on both sides. So let's get rid of the 2.3q. Try it and let me know what you get.
