So, for this one, it is 2x-14=3x+6
Can someone please explain to me how they would solve this problem?
I think you would add 14 to the 6, but I'm not sure..

  • Algebra check/help? - ,

    subtract 2x from each side.
    subtract 6 from each side

    OH! So 2x-3x is -1,
    -1x-14+6
    then subtract 6 from the fourteen
    and get -1x= 8
    correct?

    HuH?

    subtract 2x from each side
    2x-2x-14=3x-2x+6 or
    -14=x+6
    subtract six from each side
    -14-6=x+6-6
    -20=x

    Ah, okay. I see what I did wrong, thank you.
