Solve the equation and write down the property you use at each step to simplify the equation. Consider the equation: 4x + 11 = (5x + 34)/2. Be sure to show your work.. Thank You Jiskha..!! :)

  • algebra -

    4x + 11 = (5x + 34)/2
    multiply both sides by 2
    4x + 11 = 5x + 34
    4x - 5x = 34-11 , obvious steps
    -x = 23
    x = -23 , divided both sides by -1
