    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

    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

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