anonymous
  • anonymous
dls demonstrated it
anonymous
  • anonymous
@panlac01lol how would that make sence at ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
everytime you get the answer for x, you ought to to plug the value into the original equation to see if it fits. that is the only way to check if your value for x is correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know but theres no five in that equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know
anonymous
  • anonymous
but there's an x, which can be any value.
anonymous
  • anonymous

monica0597
  • monica0597
like this? |dw:1345263416469:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
first, distributive, then group like terms. now, look for the value of x by isolating it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, monica. that's how DLS did it, and that's how you should do it.
anonymous
