i minused 75 fist to each side and then got 2x =5+1.5 then minused 1.5 from each and got .5x=5 and divided x=.1
anonymous
  • anonymous
the last bit was wrong. 0.5x=5 time 2 to both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
0.5*2=1
anonymous
  • anonymous
so .5 is actually 5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
0.5 is actually 1/2 so 1/2 times 2 = 1
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
2x-1.5x of course
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that the first step
