7+3x = 5x + 13

7 - 13 = 5x -3x

-6 = 2x

-3 = x

I asked a question earlier:

Identify and discuss 4 key actions taken by the U.S. Government between 1790 to 1820 that established long term policy in the U.S. Please help me answer this, thank you so much.

and I got this response:Please note that we don't do students' assignments for them. Be sure to go back into your textbook or use a good search engine.

Funny how I got this response, when clearly you give away answers. Can we say hypocrites?

Jack -- I'm sorry you don't see the difference between working one math problem and writing a complex essay involving several paragraphs.

Hmmm well I certainly didn't want them to write a complex essay for me, just some a little help and some ideas. It's whatever though.
