plz help i have trouble with this question on algebra. basically all you have to do is simplify the equation so that X= a number.
1: 4x-5=x-1
more might be coming up as i continue with my hwk!
THANK YOU ALL! MUAH!
$\displaystyle 4x-5=x-1$
Subtract x from both sides
$\displaystyle 4x-5-x=x-1-x$
$\displaystyle 3x-5=-1$
Add 5 to both sides
$\displaystyle 3x-5+5=-1+5$
$\displaystyle 3x=4$
Divide both sides by 3
$\displaystyle \frac{3x}{3}=\frac{4}{3}$
$\displaystyle x=\frac{4}{3}$
