Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.815X=6 You have to isolate X from the other numbers. So first, add X to both sides. You will be left with 15=6+X Now bring 6 to the other side by canceling it out. You will be left with 156=X Combine like terms. 9=X or X=9 Let me know if you need more help!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait wouldnt it be 4

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Again, to find X, you have to isolate and simplify! This time you would divide both sides by 4 since it's 4x. So tell me what you get

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8The answer wouldn't be 4, but you would divide both sides by 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.84 times what will give you 36?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8yes, 9! Good job!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8This is kind of like the first one. First, get the 4x by itself on one side of the = sign. How would you do that?

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8No it's not 6. Do it step by step. If you add 9 to both sides, you will have 4x=36 which is exactly like the second problem.

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8right so 4x=36, now simplify that. X=?

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Nope 4x=36. you have to divide both sides by 4. so what is 4x/4? and after that, what is 36/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if im wrong its because i hate these types of problems im always wrong some how just saying

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok if you do that im gonna take off the human calculator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Okay this one is a bit more difficult. The first step is to distribute 6 into (3x). Do you know how to do that?

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8I can explain it if not.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not the best with these problems

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8It's okay, you are learning! Okay so 6(3x) basically means 6*3 and 6*x So try that, and see what you get. 6*3=_____ 6*x=_____

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Right. and 6*x?

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Nope, you are multiplying x with 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok x*6 you cant do can you

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8yes, you can! x*6 is 6x

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8you can still multiply the two numbers, it would just make a consonant instead of an integer.

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8okay so now you have 186x2x=14 The next step is to combine the like terms. Can you do that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i can try so add them right

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Well in this problem you would be subtracting not adding, but you have the right idea.

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8So what would be the whole problem now after you've done that?

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8right! so 188x=14 Now you have to do what you did with the problems before, you have to get the number with the x on one side of the = by itself. Can you try that?

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Okay, tell me what you get once you've tried

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would you add 8 to each side

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im in 8th grade and this still confuses me like why

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like i should no this

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Nope not quite. It would actually be easier to add 18 to each side. And it's okay! I'm a Junior in high school, and I didn't completely understand these kinds of problems until the end of 8th grade

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i dont feel bad any more

explicitvogue
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8so 18+18 would cancel out. so you would have 8x=32. Now try to simplify that.

explicitvogue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Never feel bad about thing you don't understand! Everyone learns at a different pace, and some things will come easier to you than others.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's a very good start! so, you have : \[\LARGE \dfrac{1}{7}x+6=18\] what would be the next step ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nope. you cannot combine them because they are not "like terms" you cannot add coconuts and oranges

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\LARGE \dfrac{1}{7}x+6=18\] your goal here is to isolate \(x\), maybe subtract \(6\) both sides so that the left hand side looks simpler

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i got 6/1/7 and 12

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good, \[\LARGE \dfrac{1}{7}x+6=18\] subtract \(6\) both sides and get \[\LARGE \dfrac{1}{7}x=12\]

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(x\) is still not isolated, what can be done to make it all by itself ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How can the equation \(\dfrac{1}{7}x=12\) become the equation \(x=12\) ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we need to follow some rules when isolating \(x\). recall that we're allowed to multiply same number to both sides of an equation, so try multiplying \(7\) both sides

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good, \[\LARGE \dfrac{1}{7}x+6=18\] subtract \(6\) both sides and get \[\LARGE \dfrac{1}{7}x=12\] multiply \(7\) both sides and get \[\LARGE x = 84\]
