Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@redskychicken you mean x=1 ok put x=1 3x − 5 = 2x + 6 3(1)5=2(1)+6 35=2+6 2=8 so cannot be equal.. so tell me why x=11 is not correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put x=11 3x − 5 = 2x + 6 3(11)5=2(11)+6 335=22+6 28=28 so that are equal on both sides so that x=11 is the correct answer are you understand @redskychicken
