Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you wanna get rid of any fractions by multiplying all the terms by their denominators. so the whole equation becomes: 5=15x9. 15x=4 15x=4 x=4/15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have 1/3 = x  3/5 it would be better to multiply it in 1 go and simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply with reciprocal of 3/5 it would be easier you could do 1/3 reciprocal but it would be more work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since if you multiply for example a equation by 1 you have to do so to both sides you know that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I know we have to combine like terms but when I did it I came up with the wrong answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not like terms but equal amounts just think of it like this you got a 2 ml cups of water A and B they are supposed to be equal if you add 4 pints to cup A Will they still be equal? How will you make them equal? Add 4 pints to cup B right? what is the symbol of adding? its a plus sign + 4 pints

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x = 3x + 7 what would be the easiest method try to make it simpler for you self yes , correct make the like terms dissapear

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how would you get a positive x?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I"m not sure but I think the +3x 2x should egual a positive but that is 5x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm you sure the problem was 2x = 3x + 7

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0answer is 7 but don't see how to get that answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okies here is what i get 3x = 2x +7 (2 x) 3x = 2x + 7 + (2x) additive inverse of 2x
