Explain why 6x3 is equal to 18
There would be 6 rows with 3 in each row, so 3+3+3+3+3+3=6 or 3 rows with 6 in each row, so 6+6+6=18
Evaluate for x: 5x + 2(x + 7) = 14x – 7
5x+2(x+7)=14x-7 5x+2x+14=14x-7 *Use distributive property (2*x+2*7) 7x+14=14x-7 *Add like terms to simplify the equation -7x -7x *Use the inverse operation to get the variables on one side of the equation ____________ 14=7x-7 +7= +7 *Use the inverse operation to isolate the variable __________ 21=7x 21/7=7x/7 *use the inverse operation to isolate the variable 3=x
