\[-5x-5=-4x+4\] right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
takes exactly two steps a) add \(5x\) to both sides b) subtract \(4\) from both sides

clear or no?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
on the left you have \(-5x\) yes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
so lets get rid of it by adding \(5x\) to both sides it will be gone from the left side because \(-5x+5x=0\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
So the right side has to equal 0 right
anonymous
  • anonymous
So would it be 1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it would be \(x\) lets go slow
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[-5x-5=-4x+4\] add \(x\) to both sides get \[-5x+5x-5=5x-4x+4\] that gives \[-5=x+4\] because \(5x-4x=x\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i meant "add \(5x\) to both sides"
anonymous
  • anonymous
now that you have \[-5=x+4\] you and solve for \(x\) by subtracting \(4\) from both sides to get \(x\) by itself
anonymous
  • anonymous
So would it be -9 = x ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes it would
