@mathstudent55 can you help?

Now you need to solve that equation for x.

hmmm im having trouble

First, you need to distribute the 2 on the left side.

yeah so 6x = 4

There is no equal sign inside the left side. The left side is simply
2(3x - 2)

oops i meant 6x - 4

Good, now that is equal to 5x, so write that.

6x - 4 = 5x

Now subtract 5x from both sides.

is the final answer -1x = 4?

i mean -4

it cant be

1x - 4

6x - 4 = 5x
6x - 5x = 4

is it 1x?

so 1x = 4

so is 3 the final answer?

no because 5 + 3 is not 9

ughh im getting frustrated lol

1x = 4 means x = 4. x = 4 is the final answer

lol i completely missed that

1x is the same as x.
1b is the same as b.
etc.

yeah i forgot about that. Thanks!
