Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes theres some options a. m = 4 b. m = 2 c. m = 6 d. m = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well here you should start by distributing the 4 so 4*3m = 12m and 4 *(2) = 8 which means you now have 12m+8=32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can subtract 8 from both sides like this 12m +8 8 = 32  8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now you have 12m=24 and now you can divide 12 from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 12m }{ 12 } = \frac{ 24 }{ 12 }\] leaving you with m = 24/12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once you get the hang of rules of algebra you'll have no issues with this stuff. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the solution to (5  6x) = 4(5x + 3)? Select one: a. x = 2 b. x = 1/2 c. x = 2 d. x = 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh!! i remember dat one, x= 1/2, right teeheedw:1444597877958:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(5  6x) = 4(5x + 3)\[(1)(56x) = 5+6x \]\[ 4(5x +3) = 20x+12 \] from here you now have 5+6x = 20x +12 you want to get all the x terms on one side and all the non x terms on the other so it becomes 6x20x = 125 which when combined is 14x = 7 now divide 14 from both sides and you'll have \[x = \frac{ 7 }{14 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0simplify and you will have \[x = \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\]
