 ok... we keep getting this one wrong:
Solve the following equation for x. Write your answer as a fraction in simplest form.
6(x5)=2x86(3x5)
What is it you don't understand about this? Clear the parentheses, combine terms, solve for x.
Ive been doing that but i keep getting the wrong answer
What answer have you been getting?
a lot of different ones, like 19/7
I get 4/7 but I didn't check my work. Post your work and I'll check it and find the error.
 we just got 4/7
Check it to make sure it is right.
ok  thanks i think we were just adding all wrong
yeah it was Thanks!

2(3x=7)=3(2x+8);x=5
