Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok  on the left of the equagtion there is a term 2(x+3) Can you expand that? on the right side there is a term 2(x+1) can you expand that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a good try  but not quite correct when you distribute you have to remember to distribute the sign (i.e. the ) too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whoa! take it steady 2(x+3) is the same as 2(x) + 2(3) try both sides again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok good that is correct  but it needs some brackets to make it clearer.... x 2x + 2 * 3 = 2x + 2 * 1 4 x 2x + (2 * 3) = 2x + (2 * 1) 4 so write that out with the numbers completed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you missed out the 2x from the right side so we have x2x6 =2x6 ok? now add 2x to each side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the original (when x=0) becomes 6=6 so x=0 is true solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00 2 (0 + 3) = 2 (0 +1) 4 2 * 3 = 2 +1 * 4 6 = 2 * 4 6 = 6
