## anonymous 5 years ago what is x over 3 +7=13

1. anonymous

$\frac{x}{3}+7=13$

2. anonymous

yes

3. anonymous

start by isolating the x term. How can you get the x over 3 by itself?

4. anonymous

times both sides by 3 over 1

5. anonymous

no. you need to clear the 7 first.

6. anonymous

oh yeah

7. anonymous

got it. thanks

in general you will want to get the x term by itself. Which means any terms (like the 7 in this case) that don't have an x need to go to the other side of the equal sign.
