I'm not sure it is the correct thread, but it did say Algebra homeworks could be posted here too right?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

3bx - ab + 2a^2 = 2ax + 3b^2

solve for the x.

2. Relevant equations

none

3. The attempt at a solution

3bx - ab + 2a^2 = 2ax + 3b^2

2a^2 - 3b^2 = 2ax - 3bx + ab

2a^2 - 3b^2 = x(2a - 3b) + ab

2a^2 - 3b^2 -ab = x(2a - 3b)

after which, I'm, stuck I don't know what to do anymore, nor do I know if I'm dog it right! my book says, the answer should be x=a+b. sadly, it doesn't give an explanation as to how it got the answer please help? I really need to pass my exam two days from now, and solution sets is a big part of it.
