Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint: we'll be using the distributive property A(B+C) = A*B + A*C 2(2x + 3) = _________ follow the pattern

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, that gives us 2x + 6 = 3x  4 now subtract 2x from each side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x +6 = 8x 2x2x=0 8x+0=8x right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite... we said that 2x  2x = 0 so 2x + 6  2x = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes! 2x  2x = 0 2x + 6  2x = 6 now let's move to the right side 3x  2x  4 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, 3x  2x = 1x = x that gives us: 6 = x  4 now add 4 to each side
