    no its really looks like -1=7+8x

    thats a better view...anyways... we need to solve for x so we can take 7 frm both sides of the equation we get -1-7=7-7+8x simplify we get -1-7=8x wats -1-7 equals to?

    we now divide both sides by 8 to solve for x

    how would you do 10+h/3=1

  22. LynFran

    first subtract 10 frm both sides of the equation so 10-10+h/3=1-10 simplify we get..?

    now we multiply both sides of the equation by b ...that way we can get h alone on the left side of the equation

    -5x-2=13 we can add 2 to both sides of the equation reason y... -2+2=0

  40. LynFran

    so we have -5x=13+2 whats next??

    yes -5x=15 now how can we get the x term alone ...since -5 is being multiple to x giving -5x
