One month, a music site observed that 60% of the people who downloaded songs from its site downloaded Q Sam's latest single. The equation below represents this information, where x represents the total number of people who downloaded songs from the site that month.
x = 0.6x + 384
How many people who downloaded songs from the site that month downloaded Q Sam's latest single?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x = 0.6x + 384 if this ur equation and i set x = 0 then 0=384.. doesnt make sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would turn into a negative X right? and yeah thats what it says right here on the website!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0seems a little odd given the words that you have \(x\) on both sides of the equal sign, but no matter, you can go ahead a solve anyway

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x = 0.6x + 38\\ .4x=384\\ x=384\div .4=3840\div 4=960\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Where did you get the .4? sorry for asking lol I understand this is a very awkward problem lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you start with \[x=.6x+384\] to get \(x\) on one side of the equal sign, subtract \(.6x\) from both sides \[x=.6x+384\\x.6x=684\\.4x=384\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0typo there, but you get the idea right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the decimal annoys you you can always multiply both sides by 10 and get \[10x=6x+3840\\ 4x=6840\\x=3840\div 4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't understand why they did not have this as a example iin the lessons xD But now I do get it...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe they had a problem like "solve for \(x\), \( 2x=6x+5\) " but maybe not
