Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes... and we need all variables (that is the letters) to the left since 8x is already on the left... what do we need to do to have 9x on the left?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so we subtract 9x on both sides 8x79x=9x9x36 the 9x on the right should go to 0 then we rewrite this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Marianakay456 On the right side you have 9x  36 Think of it as + 9x  36 The 9x is being added to the right side, the 36 is being subtracted from the right side. Since you want to get rid of the +9x from the right side, you subtract 9x from both sides.
