Hi,
Could someone help me with this question:
2x – 1 = 9 – 3x
Thank you in advance!

Step 1: Get all the x's on one side: Subtract 2x on both sides:gazparkin said:Hi,

Expand the parentheses:gazparkin said:Sorry, there's another one that I'm stuck on too. Really interested to understand the working out on this.
4(3b-1)+6=5(2b+4)
Thanks Dan - makes this really clear. The first one I get x=4 and the 2nd one I get b=9.topsquark said:Step 1: Get all the x's on one side: Subtract 2x on both sides:
2x - 1 - 2x = 9 - 3x - 2x
-1 = 9 - 5x
Now do the same with the numbers. Can you finish?

- - - Updated - - -Expand the parentheses:
4(3b - 1) + 6 = 5(2b + 4)
\(\displaystyle 4 \cdot 3b + 4 \cdot (-1) + 6 = 5 \cdot 2b + 5 \cdot 4\)
Now combine terms:
12b - 4 + 6 = 10b + 20
12b + 2 = 10b + 20
Now it's like your first problem. Can you finish?

The second one is okay. Let's take another look at the first one. I left off withgazparkin said:Thanks Dan - makes this really clear. The first one I get x=4 and the 2nd one I get b=9.
A linear algebra equation is a mathematical statement that involves variables, constants, and operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It can be written in the form of ax + b = c, where a, b, and c are constants and x is the variable.
To solve a linear algebra equation, you need to isolate the variable on one side of the equation by performing the same operation on both sides. In the given equation 2x - 1 = 9 - 3x, you can add 3x to both sides to get 5x - 1 = 9. Then, add 1 to both sides to get 5x = 10. Finally, divide both sides by 5 to get the solution x = 2.
Linear algebra equations are used to solve real-world problems in various fields such as physics, engineering, economics, and computer science. They help in understanding and analyzing relationships between variables and making predictions based on given data.
Yes, you can use a calculator to solve a linear algebra equation. However, it is important to understand the steps involved in solving the equation manually to ensure accuracy and to be able to apply the concept to different problems.
One helpful tip is to always perform the same operation on both sides of the equation to maintain balance. It is also important to pay attention to the signs of the terms and to combine like terms to simplify the equation. Additionally, checking your solution by substituting it back into the original equation can help verify its accuracy.
