ok well first we can get this into 2 answers so thats good. so we break down the problem into these 2 equations 2x−10=26 −(2x−10)=26 can you solve the first one?

(-2x+10)=26 @jagr2713 that it

no the firs tone 2x-10=26 what do we do first? hint: its with the -10
alante

@jagr2713 turn -10 to 10

seems like you're having trouble so i will help So when we have an equation like this 2x-10=26 the first thing we do is subtract or add on both sides so we have -10 so it turns to positive and we add except for subctract but if it was positive then we would subtract. So 10+26=36 so we have 2x=36 so now all we have to do is divide and get x=18 so now we have x by it self. Now try the next one −(2x−10)=26 Hint: we have to distribute first. do you know how to distribute?

no @jagr2713

Distributing is like this Imagine we have an equation 2(2x-10) so all we do is multiply 2 to all the numbers *inside* the parentheses. 2*2x=4x 2*-10=-20 Like that so now we have for our equation is −(2x−10)=26 so just multiply -1 to all the numbers *Inside* the parentheses -1*2x=? -1*-10=?

-2 and 10 @jagr2713
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
you forgot the x so -2x and 10
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
so now we have -2x+10=26 can you solve from here?
