alg2 check?
posted by tyneisha
solve 3(8x2)=462(12x+1)
24x6=4624x+2
24x6=4824x
48x6=48
48x=42
x=42/48 or 7/8
what where the two mistakes made in the problem?
I said the 46 going to 48 and subtracting the 6 from 48?

Reiny
correct solution:
24x6=4624x2
48x = 50
x = 50/48 = 25/24
the first major error is the +2 instead of 2
second error is subtracting 6 instead of adding 6 to both sides
I think you had picked them out correctly

is this correct... (3x^2+4x3)^2(3x^2x+2)^2 then is it this (9x^4+24x^32x^224x+9)(9x^46x^3+13x^24x+4) or this 9x^4+24x^32x^224x+99x^46x^3+13x^24x+4 should it have brakets or not that's my only problem thanks
