You have to learn to write these things using standard notation. Give it a go. Also, please show your work.

@tkhunny. There

The first step in solving is to add 3 to both sides of the equation. What is the result?

6. nuccioreggie

-4 and 6

7. nuccioreggie

The answer is B correct @kropot72

8. tkhunny

Notation: (-7/3)x - 3 = -52 You can just type that in. Add 3 to both sides... (-7/3)x - 3 + 3 = -52 + 3 (-7/3)x = -49 Let the notation make the words and pictures.

9. kropot72

What he said.

11. kropot72

$\large -\frac{7x}{3}=-49$ The next step is to multiply both sides of this equation by 3. What do you get?

12. nuccioreggie

21

13. kropot72

$\large -7x=-147$ Dividing each side by -7 gives the value of x.
