I just took a test and the only problem I had issues with was this:
Solve for x. ax+b=5(x+a)
Maybe its kinda early for my brain, but could someone please walk me through the steps of how I should've solved this?
Thanks.
first let's expand the right side
this is the distributive law, review it if you don't remember it as it is extremely important
Now the name of the game is to isolate the x on one side of the equation
So lets subtract 5a from both sides
and let's subtract from both sides
and we can factor the right side
and divide through to solve for x
