    x=2m+4 x=2(m+n)=2 x=2m+n+4 x= m+n/2 + 2

    (x-2)/2 = m+n First multiply by 2 on both sides. *2 *2 x-2 = 2(m+n) x-2 = 2m + 2n Now add 2 to both sides. +2 +2 x = 2m + 2n + 2 That is what I get. Does that make sense? And is that an answer choice?

    Check if you wrote them correctly, are you sure you wrote the second one correctly?
