Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to distribute out what's outside the parentheses first. Do you know how to do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's basically means that the number outside of the parentheses you have to multiply it to everything inside the parentheses

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 8x+43=3x+12+12, is it right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But other than that you are right. Think you can handle it from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You want all the x's to be on one side and all the numbers on the other side. Let's start by adding 3x to both sides. This will get rid of the 3x from the right hand side. 8x+43=3x+12 8x+3x+43=3x+3x+12 8x+3x+43=12 11x+43=12
