Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I am uncertain of andriod09's last step (1/4)x = 1 ==> x = .25 I believe he divided 4 off instead of multiplying 4 to both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Cross multiplication would work, but multiplying both sides by 4 will accomplish the same thing, cancelling the (1/4)x on the left hand side. :) dw:1349704242008:dw
