I'm actually doing the same exact problems as you are right now in algebra

as shavonnah is saying, multiply the outer 2 by each term inside the parenthesis |dw:1442974931673:dw|

\[4x-8=2(2x-3) second process.. 4x-8=4x+-6 third process 8x-8=+-6 third and final step 8/2=4 so x=4\]

I don't think that's correct..

Notice how the 4x terms cancel |dw:1442975852372:dw|

So was I right with the x=-6?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
we're left with the equation `-8 = -6` which is always false. -8 and -6 are two different numbers that aren't equal So that means there is no solution. There are no numbers we can replace x with to make a true equation. It's impossible

4x -8=2(2x-3) 4x - 8 = 4x-6 4x = 4x + 2 no possible solution
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
and by "the 4x terms cancel" I mean, subtract 4x from both sides 4x-4x = 0x = 0 which goes away

you might be searching for the term "inconsistent"
jim_thompson5910
