how do you solve these
1. 58b+62B=61
2. 4x68x9=21
3. g9+4g+6=12
4. 23f5+5f=6

58b+62B=61
Combine like terms:
8b  2b = 61  5  6
10b = 50
b = 5
Follow this pattern to solve the other problems. We'll be glad to check your answers. 
for #2 i keep getting the answer 4.5 and i check and its wrong this is what i did
4x8x=4x
69=3
4x3=21
18=21
x=4.5
are the steps i did wrong and when i plug in the number i get 3 as an answer instead of 21 
and i did the steps u did for all problems and i check and get a wrong answer

As a nonmathematician, I get confused by a lot of numbers, too. <g> But here's the way to do 2.
4x68x9=21
4x  6  9 = 21
4x = 21 + 15
x = 9
The answer for number 3 is 3. Can you keep working this problem until you get the right answer? 
#3 was easy and # 4
i keep getting the wrong answer which is 3/8 
My answer for 4 is 4.5

When you do the problem or the proof, please be sure you don't leave out any parts of the original problem. (I kept leaving a part of the original problem out until I went back and triple checked.)
