Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I reached the point 7a + 7b  4a+ 4b = 24 and have no gone any further because i don't know how to do what next

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my options for solving it are cancelling a + b or just algebra but ya i'm puzzled

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0combine the like terms, then you should be able to factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04(a + b) = 4a  4b, so the equation is 7a + 7b  4a+ 4b = 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03a + 3b = 24 then 3 is your common factor, so 3(a + b) = 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so a & b are both 4 but how do i reach that through algebra?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you don't have enough information to find a and b individually. They could both be 4, or a could be 26 and b could be 30. that's why they asked for the sum

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0fwiw, since they asked for a+b, and they already had them grouped, you could have considered it one variable and cut out the distribution/factoring
