Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do we do that, just take the x out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well first is to get the 1 to the other side. Since it's currently a negative on the right side, we'll add it on both sides. What will that look like?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The ones would cancel out. You can't add a normal integer to an integer that's multiplied by a value. It would look like this \[\large 22~=~4x\] Now just divide the 4 on both sides to get the x alone.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! Good job :) So \[\large 5.5~=~x\] which will be our answer :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then just convert .5 to fraction form. Or keep it as 22/4.
