Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That isn't work, that is using a guess and check technique. @goformit100 used an algebraic method that I had planned on guiding the asker through.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1One last thing before I go, Guess and check may work fine for multiple choice. However, to apply this to later problems that do not offer choices for answers; you need to know how to solve the problems algebraically.
