ok, why 10 tho

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1 cam up with 134 is that right

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it says 4=36/x-10

Nnesha (nnesha):

because you have to solve for x so that's why in other word you just moving 10 on left side to get x itself when you moving something left to right or right to right to left your sign should flip if its positive and you moving on left side than its become negative hope its help

O_o Im so confused

Nnesha (nnesha):

ok don't worry relax i will explain more :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok thans alot

Nnesha (nnesha):

|dw:1412814657330:dw| when you move -10 on left side it becomes positive you have to move 10 then you will solve for x moving -10 on other side its same like adding 10 why we are adding 10 because negative and positive 10 cancel out so we can get x itself
