1.6x-3=-2(4.2x-6) solve for x

\[1.6x-3=-2(4.2x-6)\]\[1.6x-3=-8.4x-12\]\[6.8x=-9\]\[x=45/34=1.3235\]

thank you!!!!

No problem :)

thats worng!!!!!!!!!

It'll be -8.4x + 12

it is then what is the right answer

it should be x=3/2

\(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 1.6x - 3 = -8.4x + 12 }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 1.6x = -8.4x + 15 }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 10x = 15 }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow x = {15 \over 10} = 1.5 }\) Here's the correct answer.

@megan1124 Got it?

oops yeah. parthkohli's is correct. sorry

No wait!!

why is it 10x?

its ok thats what i put anyway because its multiple choice and that was the closest one to your answer :)

Oh, yeah got it haha

forget what i said.

@ParthKohli your answer is wrong tooo!!!!!!!!!!!

why is it wrong ur wrong razor

3/2 = 1.5 FAIL lol

3/2 is same as 1.5 @megan1124

ok that is what i thought

I agree with razor99 substitute the answer instead of x and check whether they are the same. Thats my opinion

see i told u guyz

it is because its multiple choice and the answers are negative

either way x= 1.323529412

yes but that is not an answer

what are the options?

Then just plug in.

a.1.5 b. is wrong because my teacher said so c. -.5 d. -.9

what's b?

1.2 but its wrong

It has to be 1.5 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1.6x-3%3D-2%284.2x-6%29

thanks :)
