Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2x+10)=26 @jagr2713 that it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2seems like you're having trouble so i will help So when we have an equation like this 2x10=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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Distributing is like this Imagine we have an equation 2(2x10) 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=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so now we have 2x+10=26 can you solve from here?
