Charlie solved a similar equation below. Is Charlie's solution correct? Explain why or why not.
4x − 3 = 2(x − 1)
4x − 3 = 2x + 2
2x − 3 = 2
2x = 6
x =3
SO, I know he used the wrong sign in line 2. And I reordered my terms. I'm not sure if I'm on the right path or not. Could someone tell me if I'm doing anything wrong?
4x3=2(x1)
4x3=2x2
4x2x=32
2x=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so when they say 2x = 1 they mean "2 times something = 1" to find that "something" you need to undo that multiplication
