Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's like taking 4 and multiplying x and +1 separately. Just think of it like that when you get started.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04(x+1) = 4x + 4 we start of by distributing 4(x+1) = 4(x + 1) and here you can see that everything cancels out which usually means the solution is all real numbers to make sure you can plug in both 0 and 1 just to make sure and sure enough they both work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0woops ment to say factoring not distributing but you can distribute too and you'd still get to equal functions on either side
