## tanker 2 years ago 2(2x - 4) = 3(2x - 4)

If what u say above is true then Mathemathics is no more..cuz the 2=3..so 1=0...so 1=2=0...so basically all numbers equal 0! :D

2. SmokeysTheName

do you have to solve for x?

3. SmokeysTheName

@tanker

4. tanker

yes smokey

5. SmokeysTheName

okay, the first step is to distribute the 2 into 2x-4 and the 3 into 2x-4 do that and tell me what you get..

6. tanker

4x-8 and 6x-12

7. SmokeysTheName

correct (: so you have 4x-8=6x-12 you have to get the x's to one side so by doing that you can either add 12 to each side or add 8 to each side

8. SmokeysTheName

which would you like to do?

9. SmokeysTheName

really hero? i got this.

10. tanker

that wasnt right any way bo

11. SmokeysTheName

anyways, i added 12 to both sides so you'll get 4x+4=6x understand so far?

12. SmokeysTheName

^^how can he understand them if you just blow through them like that?

13. tanker

new question 5[12 - (6 - 3a) - 2a] = 2(1 - a)
