Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0set them equal to eachother, you will end up with x8 = 8x 71, solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I have 8x71=1x=8 explain to me what I do from here? I subtract 71 from both sides here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i would start by subtracting \(x\) from both sides, to put all the terms with \(x\) on the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then add 71 to both sides to get \[7x=63\] and finally divide both sides by \&\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0set them side by side like this: x8=8x71 subtract 8 on both sides and add 8 to both sides now you should get 7x=63
