Hint: either distribute to get 4j  28 = 12 or divide both sides by 4 to get j  7 = 3

Wouldn't it be 4j28=12

7(2p+3)8=6p+29

14p+218=6p+29 ?

Subtract 6p?

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yep
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
14p+218=6p+29 14p+218  6p = 29 then what

foreverkamixo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
8p+218=29?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good, next step?

Add 8? I don't know
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or you can combine 218 to get 13 this gives you 8p+13 = 29 then you can subtract 13 from both sides to get 8p = 2913
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 8p = 16 p = ??

Haha here I am :o) 3x9=7.5+5x What do we do first? I know you know it :o)

subtract 5x?

Butterfly16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Think of it like this: 35 or 53? :o)

9=7.5+2x

Butterfly16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Fantastic! Now, solve for x! Tell me what you do next :o)
 one year ago

foreverkamixo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
add 9?
 one year ago

Butterfly16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Nope. Remember, when you take from one side, you must take from the side with the x. So instead, take the 7.5 from the side with the x. :o)
 one year ago

foreverkamixo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ohh so 7.5

a5/10=2a3/5
 one year ago

foreverkamixo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
a=1/10
 one year ago

Butterfly16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
\[\frac{ a5 }{ 10 }=\frac{ 2a3 }{ 5 }\] Cross multiply :o) \[10(2a3)=5(a5)\] Distribute \[20a30=5a25\]\[15a30=25\]\[15a=5\]\[a=\frac{ 5 }{ 15 }\]\[a=\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }\] Do you see how I got that? :o)
 one year ago

foreverkamixo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Wait which do I cross multiply?
 one year ago

Butterfly16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
For the original equation, you're first going to cross multiply. So, a5 times the 5, and then the 2a3 times the 10.
