Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok first you are goign to distribute the 15 into (3+x) and end up with 4515 x=6x9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now we want to get all veribles and constants on oppist sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and you end up with 945=15x9x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0simplify you get 36=6x and because we are solving for x we will divide 36 by 6 and end up with x=6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I started with 15 * 3 and then 15 * x to get rid of ( ) Thank you so much.... I have a few more probs I am stuck on too if your free....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I had it started right but didn't know what to do next. That is my problem every time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 ( 7x + 5) = 3x 11 (2  x)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok remember first you want to distribute the 2 into (7x+5) and the 11 into the (2x)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got to 14x + 10 = 3x 22  11x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perfect. Now just get all your x terms on one side, and the nonx terms on the other.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok move your simplify both sides

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, except when you multipied the 11 to the 1 it should have be a +11x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0err 11 to the x rather

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, the 11 wasn't distributed correctly, the right side should be 3x 22 + 11x.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its 11 times  x ??

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You get 14x + 10 = 14x  22, if you subtract 14x from each side you get 10 = 22, which is false.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.011(2x) = 11(2) + (11)(x)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 ( 7x + 5) = 3x 11 (2  x)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok the first thing you want to do is to distribute the 2 through (7x+5)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I got it all the way until 14x + 10 = 3x 22 + 11

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You mean 11x. There's an x there too, but everything else is correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now bring the 3x over with the 11x and your number terms to the other side

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then simplify both sides transpose your varibles and constansts and simplify again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what @ the 14 x on the left?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you move things from one side to another, you have to first change the sign of the thing you're moving. the 3x will become negative

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 14x  3x + 10 on the left?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep. Now you can take the 10 over to the other side in the same way. change the sign, and then you can switch it over to the other side. from there, just add stuff and let me know what you get

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now 11 from both sides?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how can I subtract 11x from 11 I thought you could only do like terms?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you meant to write 11x, remember? now you can subtract 11x from it

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea. the 11x11x will cancel, leaving you with a false statement

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea it's a false statement, kinda a trick problem

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k how @ 10  3/7 x = 5

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Start out the same way getting your varibles and constansts on different sides

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you end up with 3/7x=15

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you been taught how to cancel out a fraction?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know all these rules and when to use them confuse me very BAD!!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you move something to one side of the = sign,do you have to move something back over to replace it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Inorder to cancel out the fraction we are going to multiply 7*3 then divide by 7 which will leave us with 3x=15*7, which is 3x=105, now divide both sides by 3 and we end up with x=35

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No just remember whatever you do to one side you have to do to the other.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if we have something like 2+x=1 we are going to subtract both sides by 2 which will give us an answer of x=1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so does 4/13 x = 20 come out to be.... x = 65 ???

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But like we did above we want to cancel out the fraction so we first need to find a lcm for the equation. This is easy to do because we only have one fraction in the problem. So we first multiply the numerator times the lcm then divide the new numerator by the lcm

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but we have to also multiply the other side by the lcm

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just realized that can't be right.... it would have to be a positive number wouldn't it?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct it would be x=65

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how @ x  4/11 = 3/5 would it be x = 53/55

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay you are ahuge help. Thank you...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you know anything @ set builder notation???

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would 5x 4 < 3 ( x  3) be in set builder notation?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First distribute your 3 like you were before. You want to get some expression for x either greater or less than something else.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, back sorry. Did you distribute the 3?
