Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as it says... let f(x) = g(x) so 3x + 12 = 9.5x 13 and solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do i swap f(x) and g(x) or do i get rid of f(x) and replace it with g(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well start by adding 13 to both sides of the equation 3x + 12 = 9.5x  13 + 13 + 13  3x + 25 = 9.5x 3x 3x subtract 3x from both sides of the equation  25 = 6.5x now solve for x..... you may like to check you have f(x) and g(x) correct as the solution is a decimal...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh wait its still 6.5 because you have to combine them :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hold on I'll redo it correctly and now it makes more sense 3x + 12 = 9.5x  13 +13 +13 add 13  3x + 25 = 9.5x 3x 3x subtract 3x from both sides  25 = 12.5x now the solution should make sense
