Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1After you add that to the side of the equation x is on, you have to add it to the other side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Keep the c alone and focus on the 3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be c=36 jw

sophiaholder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so no. If we have multiplication, we need to use division to get rid of the 3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no wait it would be c=9 right

sophiaholder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep. Except remember that a negative/negative = positive

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be c=9 then right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0heres the first 6.5 = –3 + n

sophiaholder

sophiaholder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Add 3 to both sides to get rid of 3. :)

anonymous

sophiaholder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so what do you think we should do first. Hint: We will need to use multiplication and division for this one

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sry crashed and um maybe divison

sophiaholder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope. IF we have a fraction beside the variable we need to get rid of the denominator.

sophiaholder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To cancel out division, you need to use multiplication.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so how would it be like??

sophiaholder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, to get rid of 3 we need to multiply by 3 on both sides.
