MultiStep Equations
posted by Anonymous .
There are not any choices to these so I need help
1. x/4 + 1 = 5
2. 6x + 29 = 5
3. Combine like terms
21a + 16a

The way to do these is to
1. add and subtract terms to get all the x stuff alone on one side
2. factor out the x
3. multiply or divide to get x all alone
x/4 + 1 = 5
x/4 = 6
x = 24
6x + 29 = 5
6x = 24
x = 4
21a + 16a
(21+16)a
5a 
Ok Thanks!
