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.
