Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0takes exactly two steps a) add \(5x\) to both sides b) subtract \(4\) from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so lets get rid of it by adding \(5x\) to both sides it will be gone from the left side because \(5x+5x=0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the right side has to equal 0 right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[5x5=4x+4\] add \(x\) to both sides get \[5x+5x5=5x4x+4\] that gives \[5=x+4\] because \(5x4x=x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i meant "add \(5x\) to both sides"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now that you have \[5=x+4\] you and solve for \(x\) by subtracting \(4\) from both sides to get \(x\) by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would it be 9 = x ?
