An equation and the steps to solve it are shown below: 2x - one over four of (12x + 4) = 3 Step 1: 2x + 3x + 1 = 3 Step 2: 5x + 1 = 3 Step 3: 5x + 1 - 1 = 3 - 1 Step 4: 5x = 2 In which step was the error made and why? Step 1, because incorrect signs have been used Step 2, because the terms have been added incorrectly Step 3, because a number has been subtracted from both sides of the equation No error was made

i just looked at step 3

I don't think it's step 3.

You started with this: \[2x - \frac{ 1 }{ 4 }(12x + 4) = 3\] In step 1, he got this: \[2x +3x + 1 = 3\] The error is in step 1, but it isn't that he "didn't do the parentheses".
