Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Combine like terms first, so 3x  1x is 2x, solve from there, 2x + 2 = 12. subtract 2 from both sides, you have 2x = 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, you wouldn't add 4 to the +1, you'd multiply, and 4 x 1 is 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't think so, if you added it would make the 12 go up. we want it to go down to 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, what would you subtract though?
