Malia solved an equation, as shown below:
Step 1: 6x = 48
Step 2: x = 48 – 6
Step 3: x = 42
Part A: Is Malia's solution correct or incorrect? If the solution is incorrect, explain why it is incorrect and show the correct steps to solve the equation. (6 points)
Part B: How many solutions will this equation have? (4 points)

Nevermind to that message I just sent you XD
its ok lol
Malia is incorrect. She subtracted 6, instead of dividing 6. The equation is multiplying 6 by x, so we have to get rid of the 6 by dividing. The correct steps would be:
Also, there's only one solution, which is 8. It's a linear equation, so it wouldn't have 2, and I've proven that it doesn't have 0 solutions. :) Still with me?
