6-61.

Solve each equation below. Check each solution.

1. $6 − (3 + x) = 10$

Distribute the negative, then solve for $x$ by isolating the variable.

1. $100(x+3)=200$

• $x = -1$

1. $\frac { 1 } { 3 } x + 4 = x - 2$

Multiply each term in the equation by $3$ to remove the fraction. Then solve for $x$.

1. $\frac { 4 } { 5 } = \frac { x + 2 } { 45 }$

$\text{Multiply }\frac{4}{5} \text{ by a Giant One that will make the denominator equal 45.}$

$x = 34$
