Question

PLEASE HELP Explain how the algebraic properties are applied in the steps to solving equations and use them to solve 1/2x+4=12. 10 points

2 Answer

  • 0.5x+4=12
    0.5x=12-4
    0.5x=8
    x=8×2
    x=16
  • [tex] \frac{1}{2}x + 4 = 12 [/tex]
    [tex] \frac{6}{12} x+ \frac{48}{12} = \frac{144}{12} [/tex]
    cancel the denominators (12)
    [tex]6x +48 = 144[/tex]
    [tex]6x = 144 - 48[/tex]
    [tex]6x = 96[/tex]
    [tex]x = \frac{96}{6} [/tex]
    [tex]\boxed{x = 16}[/tex]
