Maya solved an equation incorrectly, as shown below:
Step 1: 4x = 28
Step 2: x = 28 – 4
Step 3: x = 24
Which statement best explains why Step 2 is incorrect in Maya's solution?
She did not add 4 to 28.
She did not multiply 28 by 4.
She did not divide 28 by 4.
She did not multiply 28 four times.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 is a factor not an addend so Maya has to divide both sides of her equation by 4, like this: \[\Large \frac{{4x}}{4} = \frac{{28}}{4}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the x would equal 7. so 4*7=28

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, the value of x, is: x=28/4=... since we have: dw:1433355383651:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as I wrote before, we have to divide both sides of our equation by 4, so we can write: \[\large \frac{{4x}}{4} = \frac{{28}}{4} \Rightarrow x = \frac{{28}}{4} \Rightarrow x = 7\]
