Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right both sides are not equal btw you should reduce the fraction but in this case nope 8 is not correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright thanks for showing work i appreciate now easy to start :) dw:1434465966222:dw supposed to be \[\huge\rm 2x(10) =20(2x4)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope nope 20(2x4) is same as 20 Times (2x4) so multiply everything which is inside the parentheses by outside term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.020 x 2x = 40x and 20 x 4 = 20 so 40x  20 would equal 20x right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.140x is right but 20 times 4 =what ?

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes so \[\huge\rm 20x=40x80\] now solve for x :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope you can't combine 20X and 80 there are not LIKE terms so move 40x to the left side so you can combine 2x and 40x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope it's 20 TIMES X so do opposite of multiplication to cancel out 20 from left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 20x }{ ?}= \frac{ 80 }{ ?}\] remember opposite of multiplication is division so you should divide sides by ... ?/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you need x itself so cancel out 20 from left side to do that we should divide both sides by 20
