Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step 1: add 7 to both sides Step 2: subtract 8m from both sides Hint: you should now have: 2m = 26 Step 3: divide both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok one second then while i figure it out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to add 7 to both sides, write +7 on both sides like this 6m7 + 7 =8m+19+7 notice you can simplify 7+7 on the left side. and 19+7 on the right side what do you get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but i thought you added 6m 8m first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can do this in different order. but if we follow Xep's order (why not?) we do 6m7 + 7 =8m+19+7 yes 19+7 is 26 so we have 6m 7 + 7 = 8m + 26 what about 7+7 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you subtract 8m from both sides. Then add 7 to both sides. Then divide both sides of of the equation by 2 So ..... here is how to divide it. 2m / 2 = 26/2 M = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I assume you can simplify 7+ 7 , right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and 0 adding to anything (even 6m) does not change it. in other words 6m+0 is just 6m you now have 6m = 8m + 26 we want the "m"'s on the other side from the numbers one way is add 8m to both sides, like this 8m + 6m = 8m + 8m + 26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2on the right side you have 8 m's take away 8 m's (that is what 8m + 8m means) in other words , you get 0 for that part.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2on the left, it's 6 m's take away 8 m's (we will get a negative number, but that is ok)
