math(is this how you work this)

posted by .

solve the equation
15-4x=2(3x+1)
15-4x=6x+1
-4x+6x+1-15
2x-14
x=-14/2=-7

  • math(is this how you work this) -

    15-4x = 2(3x+1)
    15-4x = 6x + 2
    Combine all the 'x' terms on one side and the constant terms on the other side.
    15 - 2 = 6x + 4x
    13 = 10x
    So, x=?

    No, you made a handfull of errors.

    Second line, on the right should be +2
    Third line. What happened to equal signs? THis is awfully sloppy work.

    15-4x=6x+2
    subtract 15 from both sides.
    Subtract 6x from both sides.
