This storyboard was created with
2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x
How come you have to combine like terms?
Because when we solve later in the equation it makes it easier later on
2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x 6x-14=4
Because it is a postive 2x you subtract 2x from both sides to get 6x-14=4
Next step is to move all of the variables to one side
2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x 6x-14=4 6x=18
We are adding 14 because we have to cancel out the -14 in the equation. You do the inverse opperation
Now we have to move the constants to the same side
2(4x-3)-8=4+2x 8x-6-8=4+2x 8x-14=4+2x 6x-14=4 6x=18 x=3
We do this by dividing both sides by 6 to get the x alone. The answer to or equation is x=3
And for our last step we isolate the variable
Thank you for teaching me how to do a multistep equation
How do you know my name?
I know everything I am a teacher
No problem James
The teacher was dressed as a clown and knew everything it was weird
I learned how to do multi step equations
Good job James
I know I am her daughter
