Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Following that we deal with the left hand side: x/3 1 , bring the 1 across to get : x/3 = 2 + 1 or x/3 = 1 and then simply cross multiply x/3 = 1 gives x= 3(1) or x=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x/2 = 1 gives x= 2(1) or x=2 okay i replaced the number and so the answer is 2 hmm trying to understand that x = 2(1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0AH YES I SEE my book has taught me that so far for this silly SAT haha okay when i see something like x/2 = < bold 1 then that means to cross multiply yes so x/2 times 1/1 = 2(1) and x(1) == x = 2 Thanks!!
