Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0myko is right, but when you move a number to the other side of the eual sign you need to change the sign of the number itself. 4 becomes 4 and 4 becomes 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you're getting the "X's" on one side then make sure you include the x. You're combining like terms. So it would be +3x under the 3x and the 7x. But you got it right so far after you get there your going to combine the +2 and the 22.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x + 2 = 7x22 now bring like terms at one side so terms with variable lets say the ones with "x" bring them together and numbers together ;) so 3x+7x=222 4x=24 now divide both sides by 4 and you will have x=6 \[\frac{ 4x }{ 4 }=\frac{ 24 }{ 4 }\] so x= 6 ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope i did , just bring 4x in the left so sign will be changed and take +2 on the right so sign will be changed and it will be +4x and on the right it will be 2 because sign gets interchanged
