First, you just want to simplify everything. Get x on the left side, do you know how?
yes add -x to both sides
x = 3 I just did it on a graph paper.

Please no direct answers.
Plug it just to make sure
Why don't we continue solving to make sure.
|dw:1435174545918:dw|
@horsegirl27 everyone uses direct answers
No not everyone and you really shouldn't.
Ok, with x on one side you should actually have 1 1/2 + x = 7
direct answer or not 3 was wrong because its not an answer choice i honestly just want to know how to solve this
why 1 1/2 + x ?
oh and I'm sorry it should be 2x!
because you're adding 1x to 1x. Then 2-1/2=1 1/2
its not making sense to me D:
hmmm to get x on one side, you have to do the opposite. It's -(1)x so you have to add x to the positive x.
so you woulndt have to multiply each set by 2?
Nope, you're adding them.
Just say 3 lol
so its 2x + 2 = 7
@alexistheking777 that's not an option.
and @gabalishc It's 1 1/2 + 2= 7
@horsegirl27 come on its the answer tho
@alexistheking777 please stop!! I am helping them and you are not needed.
so 1 1/2 = 5 what happened to the x?
Sorry, typo. Should be 2x.
im confused.. 1 1/2x = 5
No, 1 1/2 + 2x = 7
-1/2 + x + 2 = –x + 7 2x = 5+1/2 x = 11/4
|dw:1435175317710:dw|
i made a typo its x-7 im sorry
Ok then just change 7 to -7.
Next, do -1 1/2 on both sides.
-1/2x + 2 = -x +7
thats the correct problem im sorry for confusing you i just dont understand honestly
Oh ok, so now we're working with that not `-1/2 + x + 2 = –x + 7`?
yes its not -1/2 + x its -1/2x
x = -17/4 i think right?
Nope, that's not an option
the answer key is at the top so i dont think that is right
I've got this, you may now step away alex.
I'm sorry 11/4 now i feel better byee
Bye.
So @gabalishc let's continue.
i think its 5/2
11/4
NO.
alexis thats obviously wrong its not even a choice -_-
1 1/2x + 2 = -x +7 add x on both sides. 2 1/2x +2 = 7 subtract 2 on both sides. 2 1/2x = 5 divide to get x alone. You can do this yourself.
I did -1/2x + 2 = -x +7 added x to both sides and got 1/2x + 2 = 7 then subtracted 2 to get 1/2x = 5 then divided by 1/2 to get 5/2 correct?
There you go you got it.
Where's my medal?
Um Alex, I was the one who helped, don't mean to be rude (though you were) but first of all you don't ask for medals, and second I get the medal.
And I would know because being an ambi, I've studied the CoC and TaC. Looks like you may fare better if you do too.
Can I give you medal @horsegirl27 I am stupid at solving but you did good,
lmao you dont get one because in no way have you assisted me in solving this problem but thank you for the attempt I do appreciate it. Unlike other I like to learn not just get an answer so thank you @horsegirl27 for your help.
Thats harsh
I bet.. It was also rude of you to intervene and continuously give your unneeded opinion not to mention you kept giving the wrong answer. I apologize if I'm being "mean" but maybe you should think before you take action next time.
So I hope you understand now @gabalishc. If you need more help, just tag me!
You are in FLVS I have you in my class anyways
@horsegirl27 Will do :) @alexistheking777 Thats good to know im simply retaking the class because I'm not satisfied with the grades i received my freshmen year. I'm a senior taking AP Stat so im not completely useless i just have problems with the basics and my goal is to LEARN something so like i previously stated i do appreciate your attempt to help but I didn't learn anything from you, sorry.
you and 50,000 other people.
Imma tell on ya.......
You do that.
Oh must suck to be retaking a class :( I'll try to help you actually LEARN something this time though!! :)
You know FLVS will suspend you for that for Academic Integrity Violation btw I'm on Student Council @gabalishc
@horsegirl27 right lol Im trying to get into a really great university and be salutatorian I'd just prefer a better grade even though i passed the class a better college requires better grades, you know?
Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. well, good luck on doing better in the future!
@alexistheking777 If you really feel the need to get me suspended from my class Alex im sorry you feel that way. I don't know you nor do I ever care to, I'm here minding my business getting my work done and your bothering me for some unknown reason if that will make you happy, satisfy your every want and need then knock yourself out. I don't have the patience for this, I was seeking guidance not a cheat cheat.
Well said. Direct answers don't help you learn, so it's useless to give them. Also @gabalishc you won't be suspended, you've done nothing wrong.
Actually I am on the student council and they say any activity with Open Study whether it is Answers or Help for FLVS is considered Academic Integrity Violation in the Code of Conduct and should be reported and I am loyal to my school in telling them. Just incase you wanted to know I only help NON-FLVS people.
Hence Why I was giving the wrong answer to teach a lesson but now I'mma just report it @gabalishc @horsegirl27
and if you noticed I got the answer on my own despite the answer you gave or anyone else for that matter.
Well I'm not going to involve myself as I don't know the FLVS rules. But I feel directing @gabalishc toward the answer was perfectly fair.
@gabalishc You are still posting an FLVS question which is Plagiarism since it is FLVS property and you are still getting help instead of calling a teacher. Now I'm usually not this mean and it won't be fair to you. This is a warning if you want help, ask how to do it not give a direct question. Or just call your teacher. I will not be notifying the school but I hope you learned your lesson.
And don't do it again please.
you got it.
