That is why we let the asker solve BROTHA
pwned
6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x 1) Expand brackets 2) Rearrange so all terms with an x are on one side 3) combine like terms, and solve.
A. 2/3 B. 3 1/3 C. - 2/3 D. -3 1/3
@bunyonb Stop! Let the person who asked learn by doing it.
@Tabbiejack Try it. Read what I said, and type out your steps.
later brotha
I am lost bad
Start by expanding the brackets.
Ask yourself " What do you want to solve for?"
Ok
"Solve for" means you want to get that letter alone on one side of the equals sign, right?
10/3x
But that's not an option
What happened to the equals sign?
6=2x+16-5x 6=-3x+16 6-16=-3x -10=-3x -10/-3=x 10/3=x
I'm lost
People I'm so freaking lost imabout to cry
First thing is calm down, please :-D
Check your answer in the original equation
10/3 is correct. what you need to do is simplify it. how many 3s fit into 10? three, right? with 1 left. So your simplified one is \[{10 \over 3}=>3{1\over 3}\]
O ooh I feel so stupid
6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x <----original equation
Just 1 more thing. - 1/3m - 7 = 5
3 1/3
