Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from your previous problems you might have noticed: multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the number in front of the x you have 1/5 so multiply both sides by 5 (1/5 flipped)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you do this because 1/5 * 5 = 5/5 =1 and 1*x is x on the other hand (or should I say side) you get 6*5 surely you can finish?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don't be confused start with \[ \frac{1}{5} x = 6\] multiply both sides by the reciprocal of 1/5 which is 5 \[ 5 \cdot\frac{1}{5} x = 6 \cdot 5\] can you finish?
