I assume you're trying to find x?
Okay. So start with the 2, you need to get it to the other side.
first subtract x to do inverse
not x imeant 2
now u have 1/2x=8 what do u have to do to make 1/2x to 1x
well 2 1/2 make a whole right?
1/2x + 2 = 10 -2 -2 What do you get?
where did you get the other 2
so multiply by 2 to 8
to get x=?
i got 16 but it was wrong
The opposite of 1/2 is 2, which is why you need to multiply 8 by 2.
and where did you get the other 2??
the other 2 is to show inverse to both sides
but the 1/2 is not division its a fraction
we didnt divide
flip 1/2 to 2/1
You're trying to get 1/2 to the other side. So we're doing the opposite, just like we did with the +2 part in the equation. Instead of ADDING 2, we SUBTRACTED 2. Now to get x by itself, you need to multiply 1/2 by it's opposite. We are multiplying because fractions are really just division problems. So we multiply each side by 2. Got it?
but this one isnt division
Like I said, fractions are just division problems. What you're doing to the 1 is DIVIDING it by 2.
1 divided by 2 = 1/2
Okay, let's try it a "different" way. You are multiplying x by 1/2, right? So do the opposite, DIVIDE both sides by 1/2.
but i tried that and it was wrong
Plug in 16 for x and you'll see it's right. 1/2(16) + 2 = 10
1/2 * 16 = 8 8 + 2 = 10
but its said it was -16 after i got it wrong
Unless the original equation is -1/2x +2 = 10 You are right.
If I helped, consider giving me a medal, please. :)
