    Yes As for the reasons 2 to 5, it's been too many years since I've had to justify those steps, so I don't remember the exact names of each property. They should be in your notes

    no, sorry, it's too far in my memory. You should check in your notes or manual, the definition of each property should be there and it'll help you associate the properties (reasons) with the statements

    We have the following Statments: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) 3) 4) 5) So what is given here?

    I think that what you gave me should be flipped around like x=15 should be number five because I think its a whole problem.

    good so that goes in statement 1) like this Statments: 1) 3(x-4)=33 2) 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) 3) 4) 5)

    We have 2 options, we can either divide or distribute, but we're forced to distribute because there is no option that has x-4 = 11 (which would indicate division)

  18. jim_thompson5910

    so this means we then get Statments: 1) 3(x-4)=33 2) 3x - 12 = 33 3) 4) 5) x = 15 Reasons: 1) Given 2) Distributive Property 3) 4) 5)

    3x - 12 = 33 3x - 12+12 = 33+12 ... Add 12 to both sides using the additive property of equality 3x + 0 = 45

    okay i have something that you could correct, will you check? 1) 5(x + 3) + 9 = 59 Given 2) 5x + 15 + 9 = 59 Distributive property 3) 5x + 24 = 59 additions property of equality 4) 5x + 0 = 35 subtraction property of equality 5) 5x = 35 addative identity 6) x = 7 division property of equality r these right?

    well, I guess the substitution property fits because you replace 15+9 with 24 and you can legally do this because 15+9 = 24

    usually though, you'll just say "combine like terms" if you go from 15+9 to 24
