x=42/48 or 7/8
what where the two mistakes made in the problem?
I said the 46 going to 48 and subtracting the 6 from 48?
48x = 50
x = 50/48 = 25/24
the first major error is the +2 instead of -2
second error is subtracting 6 instead of adding 6 to both sides
I think you had picked them out correctly
