how do you solve a 2 step algebra question? ie: 1/2 + 3x = 1/3(x-6)
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
In this specific problem you need to distribute the 1/3 on the right side of the equation.
The next step should be to put all the x terms on one side and all the numbers on the other side.
Subtract 1/2 from both sides.
Subtract (1/3)x from both sides.
Now all the x terms are on the left and the numbers on the right.
The last step is to divide by the coefficient in front of x which is 8/3. Divide both sides by 8/3.
x=-.9375 or x=-15/16 whether you want decimal or fraction.
