Q:
# Solve the following equation. Then place the correct answer in the box provided. Answer in terms of a mixed number. 7(2x + 6) = 1

Accepted Solution

A:

Hey there! :D

7(2x+6)=1

Use the distributive property. Multiply each number by each other.

7*2x= 14x 7*6= 42

14x+42=1

Subtract 42 on both sides.

14x= -41

Divide both sides by 14.

We know that 14 goes into -41 almost three times.

14*3= 42 (there is one left over)

-2 13/14 (we just need one more part of 14)

That is the simplified number.

I hope this helps!
