Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, would you agree with me if I said that: \(7x4x=3x\) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't really need that to do it..... I am just trying to get you to understand how to work ouy the solution:) So, back to what I asked, if you will. In general: \(7x4x=3x\) Do you agree with me or not?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, and same way: \(10x2x=8x\) \(9x3x=6x\) and so forth.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now, when you do \(bxcx\) you are going to have a "bc" number of x's. Right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, you can rewrite this: \(bxcx=7\) as: \((bc)\times x =7\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good with the step that I did just now, or you have questions about it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, so we have so far: \((bc)\times x=7\)  If I had \(4x=8\), and I wanted to solve for x, THEN, I would divide both sides by 4. \(4x\div4=8\div 4{~~~~~}\Rightarrow{~~~~~} x=2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, what whould I do when instead of 4 (as I showed in the example), I have a \("bc"\) (as we have in our problem now).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright I sorta got it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, s when we have: \((bc)\times x=7\) we are going to divide both sides by: \((bc)\)
