I dont know, 6 x 3 - 1 equals 17 and thats the closest i can get to 15, but idk :/ I'm probably doing it wrong, @Nnesha
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
it's not multiplication that's a x \[\huge\rm 6x-1 =15\] solve for x
anonymous
  • anonymous
OH i got confused ok omg
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
first move -1 to the right side :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
6x - 1 = 15 -1
anonymous
  • anonymous
16
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
nope when u move any variable or number from left to right or right to left sign should change
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right add 1 u will get 16 :-)
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
now divide both sides by 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
so is it 6 divided by 6 and 16 divided by 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
or 1 divided by 6 and 16 divided by 6
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
6 should be at the bottom bec 16 i already at the top
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
\[\frac{ 6x }{ 6 } =\frac{ 16 }{ 6 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i divide those?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right 6/6 and 16/6 i guess u should reduce the fraction depends on ur answer choices :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont have any answer choices, i just have to put in the fraction that i find
anonymous
  • anonymous
6/6 = 1 and when i divided 16 into 6 it gave me 2.66666666667
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
alright that's a decimal 16/6 = what ? in fraction form
anonymous
  • anonymous
