## anonymous one year ago WALK ME THROUGH THIS PROBLEM AND I WILL MEDAL/FAN! Solve: The quantity 3 x minus 15 divided by 2 = 4x 11 6 −3 −15

HI!!

2. misty1212

$\frac{3x-15}{2}=4x$?

3. anonymous

yes ma'am!!

4. misty1212

multiply both sides by 2 to get rid of annoying fraction on the left what do you get?

5. anonymous

3x-15=8x?

6. misty1212

yes

7. misty1212

now to get all the variables on one side, subtract $$3x$$ from both sides (that gets rid of the $$3x$$ on the left what do you get?

8. anonymous

-15=5x? ^ since we subtracted 3x rather than adding it

9. misty1212

yes

10. misty1212

last step, to get $$x$$ by itself, divide both sides by $$5$$

11. anonymous

-3=x?

12. misty1212

yes as always,go with C

13. anonymous

thanks!!!!
