Question,drbob222,math

Drbob222, even if you just tell me that there is an answer to the following problem then i know that there is an answer because i've tried many ways and i can't get x alone.

-4(2x-3) = -8x +5

Is there an actual answer for this one?

No. There is no answer, the question is flawed, impossible.

No, it isnt. the initial step of -4 times 2 is -8, not -1 as you posted. Also, you added eight x to both sides in the second line, but it became a negative on the left. Cant do that.

-4x+12=8x+5
-4x-8x=5-12
-12x=-7
x=12/7

i think this mught be right

    Where did you get 5E-5. Is this how you set it up? 0.01 x 0.05 = 5E-4 If so, is it supposed to be 5E-4 instead of 5E-5? What is the equilibrium constant for a weak acid HA that dissociates 1% at an initial concentration of 0.05 M
