1/4 ...........

  • anonymous
oops ment that
pooja195
  • pooja195
lol its ok :) anyways next step \[\huge 2x +1/4 = 1/4x\] subtract 1.4 from both sides \[\huge 2x +1/4 -1/4= 1/4x-1/4\]

\[\frac{ 2x+3 }{ 12 } = \frac{ 2x }{ 8 }\] or \[2x + \frac{ 3 }{ 12}=\frac{ 2x }{ 8 }\] which one is it ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
first one
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
alright cross multiply
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
|dw:1433458677770:dw| like this
anonymous
  • anonymous
what ones
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
|dw:1433458709380:dw| = ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
what ?? :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
24 and 4
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
how did you get 4 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops i saw 2 instead of 12
anonymous
  • anonymous
24 and 24
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
|dw:1433458898813:dw| \[\huge\rm \color{blue}{8(2x+3) }= \color{red}{2x(12)}\] that's how you should cross multiply so 2x times 2 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
now multiply first solve right side and then you can either distribute parentheses by 8 or divide 8 both sides \[\huge\rm \color{blue}{8(2x+3) }= \color{red}{2x(12)}\] so 2x times 12 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
24x?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right \[\huge\rm 8(2x+3) = 24x\] now divide both sides by 8
anonymous
  • anonymous
24x divided by 8 = 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
i need help with the other
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right yes right \[\huge\rm \frac{\cancel8(2x+3)}{\cancel8} =3x\] \[\large\rm 2x+3 = 3x\] what would be ur next step ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
.................
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
to isolate x you need x variable at one side of the equal sign \[\large\rm 2x+3 = 3x\] so how would you transfer 2x to the right side ? subtract add multiply or divide ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
subtract<
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right subtract 2x both sides
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
so what do you get after that ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
ello ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
|dw:1433460762712:dw| = what ? @whitsbfabulous
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
2x-2x= ? 3x-2x= ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk i have to go soon can we hurry
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
2x -2x = ? is it same like 2-2 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
huh ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
(3-2)x = 3-2 = what ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
combine like terms!

alright what u didn't understand if ou not gonna tell me i will not able to explain
anonymous
  • anonymous
never mind thanks for helping
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
are you sure ?? :-) let me know so what is 3x-2x combine like terms meaning add or subtract coefficient of same variable so subtract coefficient 3x-2x
anonymous
  • anonymous
All of it is confusing
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX2ZEXDeRgU just 2 mints pretty sure u will understand
