Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can make that + (12) just 12. so 3x + 12  4x  12 = 7x + 16 now you gotta combine your like terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13  4 = 1, so your x should be negative x = 7x + 16 now you have to move the 7x to the left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no. we have to do the opposite to both sides when moving the 7x to the other side. the opposite of 7x is 7x. so subtract 7x from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no :/ since we have x on the left side, we have to do 1x  7x, which is 8x. so 8x = 16 now you can divide both sides by 8 to solve for x
