This storyboard does not have a description.
Five less than twice a number is equal to one half the difference of three times the number and 13.
2x - 5 = 1/2 (3x - 13)
How do you solve that?
First we use distributed property. So we need to multiply 1/2 x 3x and 1/2 x 13. So now your equation is 2x -5 = 1.5x - 6.5.
I don't remember what is next!
I do! Now yo isolate the variable! So you subtract 1.5x in both sides so you are going to be left with 0.5x - 5 = -6.5.
Now I am stuck again I don't remember the next step.
I do, know you add 5 in both sides so you will be left with 0.5x=-1.5 .
Why don't you continue to solve it?
Hahahaha okay then. Now it is simple, you just divide both sides by 0.5 and you will be left with x = 3
THAT EQUATION WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
