## sylinan 2 years ago help please (x+20) over 2 = 3x

1. hba

$\frac{ x+20 }{ 2 }=3x$ 1)multiply both sides by 2 2) subtract both sides by 20 3)kaboom the answer appears.

2. sylinan

after i multiply 2 by both sides i got 20x=6x but i feel like that's wrong

3. hba

No it would be x+20=6x

4. sylinan

oh okay

5. sylinan

so i got x=6x so then i subtract x from both sides? and i get5x?

6. luvvikrant93

5x=20 x=4

7. sylinan

how did you get that?(:

8. hba

No subtract from both sides girly x=6x-20

9. sylinan

@luvvikrant93

10. sylinan

@hba im really lost :/

11. hba

Now we can take the 20 on the other hand and x on the other. 6x-20=x 6x-x=20 5x=20

12. hba

Okay lemme start over again then @sylinan Or you can tell where i should continue.

13. sylinan

okay im confused because we subtracted 20 from both sides and then i got x= 6x

14. hba

Okay Lets see this x+20=6x Let us subtract x from both sides. Now do it.

15. sylinan

oh okay i get it now so when you do that is when you get 5x=20

16. hba

Yes now divide both sides by 5

17. luvvikrant93

(x+20)/2=3x x+20=6x 20=6x-x 20=5x x=20/5 x=4

18. sylinan

okay and then you get four thank you!(:
