#### Storyboard Text

• Can somebody tell me what do here?﻿
• 9x+17=20+15x
• 9x+17=20+15x﻿
• ﻿What you do is you add the 9x+17, then do the same on the other side
• Also when you are done just put the equation between them﻿
• ﻿9x+17=20+15x
• Thats﻿ actually wrong you just add the numbers that don't have a varible
• Then don't you do the same with the other one with the varible, expect the one that you didn't move over goes to the other side
• 9x+17=20+15x﻿
• Actually, you are all wrong.You want to bring the lowest number to the other side of the equation﻿
• 9x+17=20+15x 17=20-9x 20=6x -3=6x -2
• So is the answer -3﻿
• Yes, so you would move the 17 to the other side and substract 20 to 17, then move 15x where the 9x is and subtract them too.﻿
• 9(-2)+17=20+15(-2) -18+17=20-30 -1=-1
• Then you verify﻿
