24x-6=46-24x+2

24x-6=48-24x

48x-6=48

48x=42

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?

- alg2 check? -
**Reiny**, Thursday, July 18, 2013 at 1:31pmcorrect solution:

24x-6=46-24x-2

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
