Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1by multiplying 3 on both sides... the 3 for the left side ends up being canceled out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or another way of seeing that there is cancellation \[\large \frac{(3)(2x20)}{3} =2x (3)\] \[\large \frac{(6x60)}{3} =2x (3)\] \[\large 2x20=6x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we just have to have all variables to the left and all numbers to the right so add 20 to both sides and subtract 6x to both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the answer should be the same even if the terms are rearranged (variables to the left, numbers to the right) dw:1438127444700:dw
