Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to make these equal? or rather, solve for x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok.... what we have here a an = sign meaning that the equation needs to be balanced at all times, whatever you add or take away from one side has to be done to the other too....does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so 7x3x=? and 10+70=80... I'm lost

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good...good.. that means that 4x = 80 right? now divide both sides by 4 and waht do we end up with?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you have 7 xs and take 3 xs away, that just leaves us 4 xs...or 4x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we want to get rid of that 4 that is hugging next to the x. we do that by dividing it by 4 to get: (4/4)x = 80/4 whats this equal?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats correct, so 1 x = 20 and thats the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think of it this way, when you are trying to get a variable..like x.... all by itself on one side, I first send the neighbors home....and that is anything that is attached by addition or subtraction to our variable...whats next is the more intimate stuff, the ''spouse'' i call it.... you get rid of it by multiplying by its reciprocal.... by whatever that number is turned upside down.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the reciprocal of 4 is 1/4 4 times 1/4 = 4/4 = 1
