Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Well, the first...let's rearrange it so it's easier to see. 26x  16x + 8  6 Now, since 26 and 16 are both multiplied by x, you can add them together. And I assume you know how to add 8 and 6!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you just have to remember to carry the signs with the coefficients. Coefficient just means the number multiplied by the variable  from the first question, 26 and 16 are the coefficients of x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.086 = 2, yes, but you need to keep the 10x. So the final answer will be 10x  2
