    hmmm this is a tough one I know we have to get x by itself so we'd add 6 to both sides then divide 4 (or multiply .25) to both sides which would leave us with x+10=3(x-2)\4

    neither do I actually... I remember they taught me this trick where you can just multiply 1/4 and flip it so it would be 4/1 or something. Ya know what why don't we try plugging in all four of your choices and see which one works then we can reverse the problem and see what we did wrong?
