The sum of x and five subtracted from eight times x is the same as thirteen plus the product of two and the difference of x and two
Hello,Originally Posted by bounine
8x-(x+5)=13+2(x-2)
Expand both sides of the equation:
8x-x-5=13+2x-4
You'll get now:
7x-5=2x+9
Gather the variables on the LHS of the equation and the constants on the RHS of the equation:
5x=14
Divide by the coefficient of x:
x=14/5

it's me again:
I'm quite confused by this problem which I did actually three times:
For jim1174
for maxmac97
and for you: bounine.
Either your complete class is registered to this forum and every one has just the same problem or you are a triplet in one body and you don't talk to yourself.
Please don't be disappointed but I won't do any problems for you anymore.
Greetings
