Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You ned to get rid of the 4x first by adding 4x to both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i get rid of the  sign in front of the 4x and just add it to the 6x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes you get rid of the 4x by +4x to both sides. I get rid of the 4x because it is smaller than 6x...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok cuz i used4 + 6x and got 2x im lost

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get rid of let's say +5 you would 5 because that would give you 0 To get rid of 3 you + 3 because that would give you 0 To get rid of +7x you 7x because that would give you 0 To get rid of 4x you +4x because that would give you 0 Does that help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x/79 =3......the / means divide so i need to multiply?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK.. You only have an x on one side so you need to get the x by itself. You always add or subtract first if needed. So you need to get rid of the 9 first

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get rid of 9 you need to +9 3 + 9 = 6 so x/7 = 6 Do you understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When it says to solve.. The first thing you should do is go to the side with the "x".. If both sides of the = sign have an "x" then you get rid of the smallest "x" by either adding or subtracting the "x". you do the opposite, if it is a positive "x" then you subtract. if it is a negative "x" then you add.. In this case, you only have x on one side. Do you know how to do this problem. x + 3 = 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Without actually just figuring that out... do you know what to do algebraically?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes subtract 3 from both sides

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good!!! Look at the problem we are doing and pretend the 7 is not there... we would have x  9 = 3 How would you solve this?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good.. That is what you do first on this problem. NOw.. How would you solve 2x = 10 (algebraically)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide 10 by 2 since 2x is multiplying u need to divide

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great.. So let's do our problem... x/7  9 = 3 You add 9 to both sides x/7 = 6 then to get rid of "divide by 7" you multiply by 7 .. put a (7) to the left of the x and to the right of the 6 (7) x = 6 (7)  7

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 7's cancel and you get x = 42

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0making sense so if x/6=4 can i use the the 4 or the 6? sry if stupid ?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You always go to the side with the x... don't even look at the other side. So all you see is x/6 What would you do then?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Read this to yourself x/6 Did you say x divided by 6?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So to get rid of divided by 6 you should multiply by 6. (6)x 4(6)  = 6 The 6's cancel and you get x = 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0real quick lol 3x+5=4x+16......x=3 or 11=x

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x = 11 3x + 5 = 4x + 16 get rid of your smallest x (3x) by subtracting 3x from both sides 5 = x + 16 subtract 16 from both sides 11 = x x = 11

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You mean of the problem we just did? Just type 3(11) + 5 = You should see 28 Now type 4(11)+16 = You should see 28 That means you were correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dont i need to put x in the equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No ... you put in what you got for x... in the last problem it was 11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok 2(3x+1)=3x20......can we do together?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. When you have parentheses, you need to get rid of them first... you do this by distributive method.. can you do this?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes 6x + 2=3x20....first step

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good... It's best not to have a + next to a  Just write 2 * 3x = 6x and 2* 1 = 2 So we write 6x  2 = 3x  20 NOW you have x's on both sides  so get rid of the smallest x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so y do we change from adding to subtracting

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0WOW.. hard to explain... Were you ever taught that when you were given a " 5" you could change that into a "+ a negative"

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Plus a negative 2 (+ 2) is the same thing as subtracting 2 (2)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You just never want two signs next to each other... So going back to the problem 2(3x + 1) you should think of this. 2(3x) and 2(+1) so you get 6x 2 **** THE SIGN IN FRONT OF A NUMBER ALWAYS GOES WITH THAT NUMBER... it's like it belongs to that number.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can do it your way... here we go 6x + 2 = 3x  20 How do we get x's on one side (get rid of the smallest "x")

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ur way makes alot more sense here we go

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just to make sure if i use the smaller x it would be 9x?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very good 2 = 9x  20 NOW that you have x on one side ONLY LOOK AT THE side with the x... What do you get rid of next.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get rid of the 6x you need to +6x to both sides.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0add 20 or 2 to both sides get 18.....18/9x= x=2?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Very important you understand what I am saying. When there is only one x in your problem. You go to the side of the equal sign that has the x. YOUR EYES SHOULD NOT EVEN SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE = sign. In this case.. take your left hand and cover up the 2. Your eyes should ONLY see 9x  20 and in this case you do + 20 to both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04(3x5)=4x+27 that equals 12x20=4x+27, so would it b 12x  4x or 12x4x?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012x  20 = 4x + 27 You have x's on both sides of the = sign.. get rid of the smallest x by doing the opposite.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just wanted to know if next step = 8x or 16x

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x is smaller than 12x so you get rid of the 4x by +4x to both sides 16x  20 = 27

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes and you won't get a nice answer

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.016x = 47 divide by 16 x = 2.9 or 47/16 which = 2 15/16
