Linear equations: -1=5(x-4)-(x-7) What is the solution set? How do I solve this,or is it unsolvable?
Simplify the right side of your equation first. Then tell me what you get.
Idl how to simplify it! That's the problem :(
@lilg132 , why not add one to both sides and set each bracket = to zero?
How do I combine the two Xs together?
-1 = 5(x-4)-(x-7) -1 = 5x - 20 - x + 7 now simplify this -1 = 5x - x -20 + 7 -1 = 4x - 13 -1 + 13 = 4x 12 = 4x 4x = 12
@AmTran_Bus just the way i do it
So the solution set would be 3?
