Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3lol its ok :) anyways next step \[\huge 2x +1/4 = 1/4x\] subtract 1.4 from both sides \[\huge 2x +1/4 1/4= 1/4x1/4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 2x+3 }{ 12 } = \frac{ 2x }{ 8 }\] or \[2x + \frac{ 3 }{ 12}=\frac{ 2x }{ 8 }\] which one is it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1433458898813:dw \[\huge\rm \color{blue}{8(2x+3) }= \color{red}{2x(12)}\] that's how you should cross multiply so 2x times 2 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now 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 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right \[\huge\rm 8(2x+3) = 24x\] now divide both sides by 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right yes right \[\huge\rm \frac{\cancel8(2x+3)}{\cancel8} =3x\] \[\large\rm 2x+3 = 3x\] what would be ur next step ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to 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 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right subtract 2x both sides
