Drbob222, even if you just tell me that there is an answer to the following problem then i know that there is an answer because i've tried many ways and i can't get x alone.
-4(2x-3) = -8x +5
Is there an actual answer for this one?
No. There is no answer, the question is flawed, impossible.
No, it isnt. the initial step of -4 times 2 is -8, not -1 as you posted. Also, you added eight x to both sides in the second line, but it became a negative on the left. Cant do that.
i think this mught be right
