## LonelyandForgotten 2 years ago 4(n + 3) = 2n + 8

1. lovemenplayhard

4n+4*3=2n+8 4n+12=2n+8 subtract 2n both the sides 4n-2n+12=2n-2n+8 2n+12=8 subtract 8 both the sides 2n+12-8=8-8 2n+12=0 2n=-12 divide by 2 n=-6 ;)

im sorry i keep asking the same questions i just dont understand the steps to solving this :(

3. lovemenplayhard

u gotta bring like terms 2gehter

4. LonelyandForgotten

hmm that can't be the answer

5. LonelyandForgotten

6. lovemenplayhard

7. LonelyandForgotten

but its not one of the options

8. lovemenplayhard

oops sorry n=-2

9. lovemenplayhard

2n+12-8=0 2n+4=0 2n=-4 n=-2

10. LonelyandForgotten

4n+4*3=2n+8 4n+12=2n+8 subtract 2n both the sides 4n-2n+12=2n-2n+8 2n+12=8 subtract 8 both the sides 2n+12-8=8-8 2n+12=0 2n=-12 divide by 2 n=-6 ;) he had this right up until 2n+12=8 subtract 12 both the sides ***** 2n+12 - 12= 8-12 2n = -4 n = -2
