Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how would you cancel out 8 from left side ? you should move all the numbers to the right side to solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh for that question 6 was positive now to cancel out 8 from left side you should apply the opposite of subtraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how how would you cancel out 4 from left side ? remember x is dividing by 4 so you should apply opposite of division

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, so sorry! multiplication. so 4 x 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right multiply both sides by 4 left you should multiply 4 times x/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah, I see. dw:1442026173485:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope why we multiplied both sides by 4 ? so we cancel out 4 from left side right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[4 \times \frac{ x }{ 4}=\frac{ 4x }{ 4 }= ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 times x/4 is same as 4/4 times x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sp, we are left with 4x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like i said we should multiply both sides by 4 so we can cancel out 4 from left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01? the / is confusing me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[4 \times \frac{ x }{ 4 }= \frac{ \color{Red}{4}x }{ \color{ReD}{4} }\] 4 times x/4 is same as 4/4 times x and 4/4 isn't 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does the / represent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is an example \[\huge\rm \cancel{3} \times \frac{ 2 }{\cancel{ 3} }\]

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \[\huge\rm \color{ReD}{\cancel{4}} \times \frac{ x }{ \cancel{4}}=20 \times \color{ReD}{4}\] when we multiply both sides by 4 at left side 4 would cancel each ohter out
