Remove the fraction, then it doesn't look like such a bad a**
How do I add 3x + 5 though?
You're asking the wrong question. Your question should be How do I move the fraction. If you already know how to do that, just do it.
But I do not know how to do it.
The only 'odd' or different thing about it, is the 2 in the bottom. You can remove it, make the whole thing simpler by multiplying everything by 2.
So I multiply everything except the fraction?
You multiply everything including the fraction by 2.
So it would be 3x2 5x2 1x2 5x2 3x2
You have to stay consistent and write it as you did above in the original question. It would look like this 3x+5+2=10x+6
You might have made a little mistake. Take it line by line. But you would agree with me, you have a simpler equation now. Remember that 'trick', any time you have to save an equation with a fraction.
Ok! Here is what I got. x= -7
Write it out line by line, and we'll tell you where you're going wrong
Ok. |dw:1355066986623:dw|
To complete this, you have to divide by -x. If you divide -1 by -7, you would never get 7, no matter what part of town you live.
So what would I get? 1?
To divide, you just write -7 under the number you're dividing. I think you're thinking too much instead of just working the problem
Yeah that is what everyone says. I am an over thinker. So what is the answer? I will be able to figure this out better if I have an answer, then I can work from the answer and keep doing the problem until I match that answer.
Your answer is correct to this point -7x = -1 You can make it even simpler by removing the negative sign by just changing sides 1 = 7x which is the same as 7x = 1 From this point, to get rid of the 7, you divide by 7. You put a 7 on the bottom (in the denominator) on each side.
