OK, let's think of it this way: divide both sides by \(\large {1 \over 2}\).

Remember this? 2 x 1 = 2 2 x 2 = 4 2 x 3 = 6 2 x 4 = 8 2 x 5 = 10 2 x 6 = 12

Basically, you just wanna get the \(\rm x\) alone.

Think of it this way: we must divide both sides by \(\Large {1 \over 2}\) which just means multiplying 2. Right?

\[\rm {1 \over 2}x\cdot 2 = {15 \cdot 2} \]

then the answer will be?

ok..so WHAT IF 1/2x is equals to 3..and it will look like 3/2=30?

jazy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
What do mean if (1/2)x = 3? You multiplied by 2 in order to isolate the x...to let it alone on one side. So: \[x = 15 \times 2\]

why do we multiply it with 2 then?
 2 years ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
As said above, we divide by onehalf which is the same as multiplying 2.

jazy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
To UNDO the (1/2)x we multiply by 2. We want to solve for x, find it's value. So we need it isolated on one side.

Once you multiply by 2, the (1/2) is gone.
