How do you do this and what is the answer?
Solve for x: 32x + 6 = 12
1) x = 1 and x = 5
2) x = 1 and x = 5
3) x = 9 and x = 3
4) No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3divide both sides by 3 first, which gives us 2x+6 = 4 write equations for the two cases: (2x+6) = 4 and (2x+6) = 4 solve both equations for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. I have a question for absolute value. Can there ever be negative in your answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't I have to divide 2x by 2 and 4 by two in order to get x by itself?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3not quite, you want to subtract 6 from both sides first ok, we have two equations, let's start with the first one: (2x+6) = 4 first step, we want to subtract 6 from both sides 2x + 6  6 = 4 6 = 2 2x = 2 x = 1 now, let's move to the second equation (2x+6) = 4 2x + 6  6 = 4  6 = 10 2x = 10 x = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is x=1 and x=5? I thought the answer couldn't have negatives in it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Can you please help me solve this problem too. Your a lot of help. Solve for x: x  2 + 10 = 12 x = 0 and x = 4 x = 4 and x = 0 x = 20 and x = 4 No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is one Solve for x: x + 2 + 16 = 14 x = 32 and x = 4 x = 4 and x = 0 x = 0 and x = 28 No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3subtract 16 from both sides this gives us x+2 = 2 since the number on the right side of the equation is negative, there is no solution (there is no value of x we can use to make the left side negative as well)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is another problem Compare and Contrast: Two equations are listed below. Solve each equation and compare the solutions. Choose the statement that is true about both solutions. Equation 1 Equation 2 5x  6 = 41 7x + 13 = 27 1) Equation 1 has more solutions than equation 2. 2) Equation 1 and Equation 2 have the same number of solutions. 3) Equation 2 has more solutions than Equation 1. 4) The number of solutions cannot be determined.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.35x6 = 41 has no solutions, because the number on the right is negative 7x + 13 = 27 has two solutions we can find them by solving (7x+13) = 27 and (7x+13) = 27 for x
