Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the absolute value sign means we need to solve for two cases, one where (x10) is positive and one where (x10) is negative so we get: 1. x  10  4 = 2x 2. (x10)  4 = 2x solve each equation for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. x  10  4 = 2x do i add 4 with 4 and 2x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add 4 to both sides of the equal sign and tell me what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. x  10  4 = 2x +4 +4 x10=2x+4 is it like that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why not x  10  4 = 2x > x  14 = 2x ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then subtract x from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don't worry about that equation as it doesn't have a valid solution solve the other equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im still confuse with the first one..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, we can pick up where you left off x10=2x+4 now add 10 to both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x=2x+14 is it like that?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, now subtract 2x from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x=2x+14 2x 2x x=12x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite, remember that you can't combine 14 since there's no x attached to it x  2x = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so its x2x=142x

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1almost x2x = 2x+142x now keep going x  2x = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, so if 12 = 1, what does x  2x = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correcto, now we have x = 2x+142x what is 2x+142x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, so what is 2x+142x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite... 2x+142x = 2x2x+14 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It may be easier if it's re written as 2x  2x + 14 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Vocaloid never mind I didn't realize you wrote the same thing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, not quite.. 2x  2x = 0 2x  2x + 14 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x  2x + 14 => 0 + 14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, that gives us x = 14, which makes x = 14. (this solution doesn't quite work, like campbell mentioned, we'll see why later) now on to the second equation ~

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x10)  4 = 2x x+104=2x

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, keep going 104 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, that gives us x + 6 = 2x now add x to each side

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x + 6 = 2x +x +x x+6x+2x+x

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite, remember that you can't combine numbers and variables x + x + 6 = 2x + x

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now keep going x + x + 6 = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1excellent! now, x + 2x = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, here's a hint: 1 + 2 = 3 x + 2x = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, now we have 3x = 6 now divide both sides by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, we're almost done after solving the two equations we have x = 14 and x = 2 our next step is to substitute back into the original equation to see which ones work and which ones don't when we plug in x = 14, we get x104=2x 14104 = 2(14) 244 = 28 24  4 = 28 20 = 28 (this is not true, so x = 14 is not our solution)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next, we try x = 2 x104=2x 210 4 = 2(2) 8  4 = 4 8  4 = 4 4 = 4 this is true, so x = 2 is our only solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it's x=14 and x=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would say it is because of the work that you guys did up above but if not i will go back through it with you.
