-46?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ya. -40-6 = -46. I combined those numbers in the second step.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So what's next ? @misty_fox
anonymous
  • anonymous
would that be the final answer tho? cuz that is one of the options
anonymous
  • anonymous
You would have to bring the x terms on one side of the equation after that 3rd step. Do you know how to do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yea i did that and i got -47 but its closest to -46 and i might have did it wrong but idk
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[-4x-46=-3x+6\]\[-4x+3x=46+6\]\[-x=52\]\[x=-52\]
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
