## kristopher1014 3 years ago 4(x − 1) = 2(x + 2) + 6

1. sauravshakya

4(x − 1) = 2(x + 2) + 6 4x-4=2x+4+6

2. sauravshakya

Now, can u?

3. Kaederfds

i got x=3

4. sauravshakya

Nope..... @Kaederfds

5. sauravshakya

4x-4=2x+4+6 4x-2x=4+6+4 2x=14

6. monica0597

start by using the distributive property. |dw:1345262204345:dw|

7. sauravshakya

so what do u think is the answer @Kaederfds

8. Kaederfds

sorry, i'm wrong

9. kristopher1014

i got 2x+8+6 what am i doing wrong ?

10. monica0597

I think this is how you solve this. Check with someone else though just in case. |dw:1345262530432:dw|

11. DLS

4(x − 1) = 2(x + 2) + 6 4x-4=2x+4+6 2x=14 x=7

12. kristopher1014

@monica0597 its not because 5 is not an answer but thnks

13. monica0597

lol ur welcome i guess?

14. panlac01

try plugging 5 into the original equation and see if it fits

15. panlac01

dls demonstrated it

16. kristopher1014

@panlac01lol how would that make sence at ?

17. panlac01

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

18. kristopher1014

i know but theres no five in that equation

19. panlac01

I know

20. panlac01

but there's an x, which can be any value.

21. kristopher1014

omfg i know just forget it

22. panlac01

but 5 is not the answer

23. kristopher1014

@dls how did u get 14 ?

24. monica0597

hold up, am i actually right ? @panlac01

25. panlac01

26. monica0597

5

27. panlac01

then no

28. sauravshakya

29. panlac01

30. sauravshakya

right? @panlac01

31. monica0597

ohhhhhhh...

32. panlac01

monica, you forgot something

33. monica0597

what did i forget?

34. kristopher1014

can some one shoe me how he got 14 so i can inderstand better ?

35. kristopher1014

show *

36. panlac01

you added 4 on one side of the equation, but forgot to do it on the other side

37. monica0597

oh no wonder. so then that's where you get the 14

38. monica0597

like this? |dw:1345263416469:dw|

39. panlac01

first, distributive, then group like terms. now, look for the value of x by isolating it.

40. panlac01

yes, monica. that's how DLS did it, and that's how you should do it.

41. kristopher1014

lol i get it now , but how do u draw monica ?

42. monica0597

oh thanks for correcting me. @kristopher1014 , there's ur answer

43. DLS

:)

44. monica0597

there is this little thing at the bottom ofd the box in which you type. it says draw

45. panlac01

but in the future, we cannot give out the answer

46. kristopher1014

ok i found it

47. kristopher1014

|dw:1345263668277:dw|
