Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Doesn't work that way. Prove that you can do SOEMTHING. 0.26(x+40)+0.37(x+20)=20 Do one piece at a time. 0.26(x+40) Can you expand that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You'll have to be more clear. is "2/5x" this \(\dfrac{2}{5x}\) or this\(\dfrac{2}{5}x\)? Use parentheses to be clear.
