@ParthKohli please help
can you simplify the left hand side first?
No, I don't believe so
2(x + 1), you need to distribute here, are you familiar with distributing?
ok so please distribute to simplify that
2x + 2 right ?
so now you have 2x + 2 = 2x + 5
now subtract 2x from both sides
what do you end up with?
ummm... I think it is 2x = 2x + 3
I think I did it wrong
well that is correct, if you subtract 2 from both sides, but i was saying to subtract 2x from both sides
so if you have 2x + 2 = 2x + 5, and you subtract 2x from both sides you get 2 = 5, since 2 does not equal 5 this does not have any solutions
hint: if we apply the distributive property of multiplication over addition at left side, we can write this: 2x+2=2x+5
does this make sense?
Thanks guys for all your help!
I need help with another one, can you guys help?
sure, close this one and post up another
