## dusty 2 years ago for the function f(x)=3x+2 find x such that f(x)=14

1. kausarsalley

if f(x)=14, \[3x+2=14\]

2. kausarsalley

do you get that part??

3. dusty

yes

4. kausarsalley

can you continue from there or should i explain further??

5. dusty

12. dusty

will someone please explain this to me?

13. dan815

think of me as that distraction in a class room

14. kausarsalley

@dusty subtract both sides of the equation by 2, \[3x=12\] now, if you divide both sides of the equation by 3, what do you get??

15. dusty

x=4?

16. kausarsalley

yes....you got it right!

17. kausarsalley

so x=4

18. dusty
