hmmm not quite We want to combine like terms this would mean subtracting and adding from the other side of the equation
Step 1: Add 5q to both sides. 2q+18+5q=−5q−3+5q
Oh so -2 on both sides?
I didn't see that
You can also do it that way :)
22q and 8q?
\[\huge ~2q+18+5q=−5q−3+5q\]
whats 5+2=? whats -5+5?
7 and 0
Good so now we have \[\huge~7q+18=-3\] any ideas on what the next step may be?
-3 on both sides?
hmm no we are isolating q so subtract 18
From both sides
I was gonna say -18 but I didn't think so
Well you were right :) -3-18=?
0
And -11
no try again.
-21
good whats -21/7
-3
Good so we get x=-3 :)
Thank you again!!
:)
