Balancing Equations - Example 3



Text Box: Step 1:
Text Box: Since the whole expression is divided by 2  we will multiply both sides by 2 (the opposite operation) first!





Text Box: The opposite of +6 is adding -6 to both sides. We do this to get the 4x alone.

Text Box: Step 2:



Text Box: Step 3:

Text Box: Divide both sides by 4 (the opposite of multiplying by 4 to get the x alone.


Text Box: Our solution is x = 54. Now check your answer!
