Hi, I am trying to do homework for my math 012 class solving linear equations and I need help with 9 of the problems. I would really appreciate any help with this. I can do the problems and send them to you, or however you prefer.
Thanks!

ok thanks!
6(1x3)26=8
6(1x3)26=8
6x+1826=8
6x+44=8
44 44
6x=36
6 =6
x=6

It is conventional to just write x, instead of 1x, wheneve the coefficient of an algebraic variable is 1.
There is a mistake in what you did.
Let's take a look.
6(x3)26 = 8
6x +18 26 = 8
(You got that far OK)
6x  8 = 8
6x = 0
x = 0

One more thing with this problem if you can explain for me. how come in the forth step, it is 6x=0?

I added 8 to both sides of the equation, thus eliminating it.
