Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you add 4 to both sides....now you have x/3 = 15 multiply both sides by 3 which leave x = 45 now check....45/3? is 15... 4 = 11 so yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so combine like terms 2x  4x = 2x 1  9 = 8 so we have 2x  8 =12 now add 8 to both sides 2x = 20 x = 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@@lvasquev462 Do you want me to help you through the method of solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03(x  3) = 5(x + 3) First remove the brackets on each side by multiplying each term inside the brackets by the term outside the brackets. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good work! So now we have: 3x  9 = 5x + 15 Now subtract 3x from both sides. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the result of subtracting 3x from 3x; 3x  3x = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! So now when we subtract 3x from both sides of 3x  9 = 5x + 15 we get 9 = 5x  3x + 15 What happens to the right hand side when you combine the two terms in x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got 17 = x if i skip ahead will tht be correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct again! Our equation has now become 9 = 2x + 15 Next step is to subtract 15 from both sides to get the term in x all by itself on the right hand side. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry x = 17 is not correct. Please continue with the method I am showing you :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well 15  9 = 24 sure enough. So we have 24 = 2x And x = 24/2 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. The solution is x = 12.
