Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, with x on one side you should actually have 1 1/2 + x = 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because you're adding 1x to 1x. Then 21/2=1 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its not making sense to me D:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmmm 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21 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.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Um 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.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lmao 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.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually 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 NONFLVS people.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hence Why I was giving the wrong answer to teach a lesson but now I'mma just report it @gabalishc @horsegirl27

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and if you noticed I got the answer on my own despite the answer you gave or anyone else for that matter.

horsegirl27

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well 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.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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.
