## I<3Fun 4 years ago Solve the following equation. One point is given for showing steps and one point given for the correct solution. (5x - 1)/2 + (-3x - 1)/4 = 9/2

1. M

2(5x-1) + (-3x - 1) = (4)(9/2) 10x - 1 + 3x - 1 = 36/2 13x - 2 = 18 13x = 20 x = 20/13

2. M

whoops mistake

3. M

2(5x-1) + (-3x - 1) = (4)(9/2) 10x - 2 + 3x - 1 = 36/2 13x - 3 = 18 13x = 21 x = 21/13

lol heyyy haha and omg M!!!! LOL

(5x-1)2 + (-3x - 1)/4 =9/2 I would multiply all terms by 4 2(5x-1) +(-3x - 1) =18 remove parens 10x-2-3x-1=18 Now consolidate similar terms. 7x-3=18 add 3 to both sides 7x=21 x= 3 dividing both sides by 7
