    but d is the same so how would d=c?

    hmmm, ok, like this: (x+y)(u+v)=xu+xv+yu+yv apply this into your equation x=d, y=-7, u=d, v=4/3

    no way ttt, d can't equal -7, that makes the equality false!

    im solving it it will =0 like this, (x-4)(X+2)=0 so x-4=0 and x+2=0

    if you add 4 to both sides of the equation x - 4 = 0 you get x = 4

    (d-7)(d+4/3)=0 d-7=0, d=7 because 7-7=0 d+4/3=0, d=-4/3 because -4/3+4/3=0 which part don't you understand? dont make it too complicated.

    why would it be 7+7? d=7, so you change letter d in the equation into number 7. you didn't touch the minus sign at all so how can it become +

    that's what people always do, I dont. why add more stuff? think this way. you have 7 on the right, now change it to the left. everytime you change side of anything, you change the sign. that number 7 on the left, you have - before it, so it's -7. now you move -7 to the left, you change the sign. So -7 on the right become +7 on the left. done

    no no, dont add anything, move it to the other side. what you have on the left? you have (-6) and (+12) right? so change the side. remember, CHANGE SIDE, CHANGE SIGN. (-6) from left to right become +6, +12 left to right be come -12. can u do the rest now?

    that 12 there, why is it still on the left. It should be changed to the right to become -12. a=2+6-12 like that try another one x+5-7=1 remember, if you change its side, also change its sign, if not, nothing happen

    that's alright, but you just begin with this method, so try follow the rule d-7=0 -7=-d (see, change side, change sign) d=7 (again, change side, change sign)

    if you move anything from left to right or right to left, change the sign that go with it. eg. -7 on the left becomes 7 on the right or x on the right, become -x on the left

    that's ok but you shouldn't do it that way because it could easily get wrong. you have d+4/3=0 what you wanna find should be on the left, so d stay. 4/3 on the left, moved to the right, becomes -4/3 so d=-4/3

    not really, you know left and right right? (left)=(right) look at the term d first, we have -4d on the left, so keep it, -7d on the right, bring it to the left, change the sign, become 7d. so on the left you have -4d+7d on the right, there's 1 and 2/3, keep them. there're +5-3+12 on the left, bring them to the right, change sign, become -5+3-12 so the right: 1+2/3-5+3-12 then equation is -4d+7d=1+2/3-5+3-12 compare these two: -4d+5-3+12=1-7d+2/3 (origin) -4d+7d=1+2/3-5+3-12 (after changing) I'll put some brackets for clarity -(4d) + 5 -3 +12 = 1 -(7d) +2/3 (origin) -(4d) +(7d) = 1 +2/3 -5 +3 -12 (after changing)
