Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have done 25% of the problem. Now open the parenthesis on the right side by multiplying the terms inside by1 (change signs in other words).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In went across 5x+25 then 2x +1 then combined them which gave me 7x+33. I did know I had to change the signs. When do you know when to do that"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05(x + 7) = 5x + 35 2(x  1) = 2x + 2 14 = 14 (1  9x) = 1 + 9x Do you get each of these?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can do this one of two ways. (2x  2) which is 2x + 2 or 2(x  1) you take 2(x) and 2(1) which gives you 2x + 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 5x + 35  2x + 2 = 3x + 37 because 5x  2x = 3x 35 + 2 = 37

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why would you change the signs? You already used the  when you multiplied.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x + 37 = 14  1 + 9x 3x + 37 = 13 + 9x subtract 3x from both sides 37 = 13 + 6x subtract 13 from both sides 24 = 6x divide by 6 on both sides 4 = x
