I have a problem.....
I understand first you distribute the -4 so you would have
Then if you try and move x over to either side you completley get rid of x.... am I missing something or is this problem not solvable?
I think I just solved my own question :)
there is no solution....I just remember that is a possibility.
I was stuck in the mindset that there is always a solution, but I could not find it lol
Actually, there is a solution.
-8x+12= 8x + 5
subtract 8x from both sides...
now subtract 12 from both sides...
