Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you are given the sum of two numbers is x. (say the numbers are k and L)(so L+k=12) one of those numbers is 12. (replace one of the letters there, say replace L with 12) so you are given 12+k=x just solve for other number (which we called k)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2did you try solving for k ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so how did you solve this equation for k 12+k=x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012+x just makes sense to me sum of two numbers 12 is one x is the outher

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok since you don't know how to solve the equation above for x I can give you one more way to look at this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are given them of 12 and another number is x and they are asking what that other number is well 12+which of your choices give you x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2choices: 12  x x  12 12 + x 12 x  well is 12+(12x) = x? or is 12+(x12)=x? or is 12+(12+x)=x? or is 12+(12x)=x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you don't have to be you have to be good at arithmetic for this question do you know what 1212=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21212... if you have 12 apples and someone takes all 12 apples away then how many apples are you left with?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what does this simplify to then: 12+(x12)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can rearrange it... 1212+x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and above solving this equation for k : 12+k=x you would subtract 12 on both sides 12 12  k=x12 just going back to how to do the previous way
