Did you get that so far?

11. Republican31

Yes!

12. anonymous

Ok then do you know what to do after that?

13. anonymous

Like how to put together like terms?

14. Republican31

So then: 10x=8x+15?

15. Republican31

Or... I'm confused. Sorry.

16. anonymous

It's okay! It can be confusing sometimes. :)

\[10x = 8x +15\] Now subtract 8x from both sides of the equal sign. |dw:1438379770484:dw|
