showw mee hooww too doo. pleasee(x 9x+7-2x=14
\[9x + 7 - 2x = 14\] so now: \[9x - 2x = 14 - 7\] Did you understand what i did here?
7x=7 = 1, yes you were correct.
why would you change the position of the 7
to have like terms on the same side of the equation, to make it easier.
idk i just dont get it.
i feel you, that can be super frustrating. I'll try to explain the best i can. hold on please:)
i get it i get it x=1
9x+ 7 - 2x = 14 okay so first you are trying to solve for x, so in order to make it easier to do that, you'll want to make sure that the numbers with the x are on the same side of the equation, vise versa ( you'll want to make sure that the plain numbers are on the opposite side ) . Which means that
like terms thing I was saying. Then you'll solve both sides of the equation so you only have 1 number on each side
then in order to get x= , you divide the number that is plain, with the number by x, then you'll get the answer!! :) you're welcome.
