4x+2+7x12=56 solve for x, then plug x into the equation

Do you still need help with this, @Kagome_gurl8 ? I noticed you bumped your question.

Yeah, I know how to put the equation together but i don't know how to solve for x....

Okay, so we have the equation 4x + 2 + 7x  12 = 56, as provided by @dancechick76 . Do you know how to combine like terms on the left side of the equation?

You need to add toether like terms. You have 2 numbers with x's. Combining those would give you 11x. Do you see where we're going?

the next step would be to combine 4 and (12).

friedch1ckenBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, you have 4x and 7x. 4 + 7 is 11, so you would get 11x. And then you can combine the other like terms, 4 and 12. What would you get?

Well, you would get 16 if the 4 was a negative 4. But since it is positive, you have to add 4 to 12. If I owe you 12 dollars and I pay you 4, how many more dollars do I owe you?
