first we must aim to get the 2 terms containing x on one side of the equation the 2 terms are 2YX and 2ZX

@Michele_Laino

yup got that

6. welshfella

so first subtract 2YZ from both sides of the equation can you do that?

7. rvc

this question i have seen before lol

8. rvc

isolate X

9. welshfella

W=2YZ+2YX+2ZX W - 2YZ = 2YZ - 2YZ + 2YX + 2ZX

10. Michele_Laino

so , according to @welshfella , we can write this: $\Large W - 2YZ = 2X\left( {Y + Z} \right)$

11. welshfella

W - 2YZ = 2YX + 2ZX

12. rvc

good

13. welshfella

yes - we can factor the right side as Michele has done

14. welshfella

can you tell me what we do next?

15. welshfella

yes - but it might be better to put both the numerator and denominator in parentheses

16. welshfella

yes divide by 2 and that's it

17. welshfella

looks good

thanks!
