1-16.

What value(s) of *x* will make each equation below true? Homework Help ✎

This one you can do in your head.

Combine like terms on both sides of the equation.

2*x*− 6 = 2*x*− 6Add 6 to both sides

2*x*− 6 = 2*x*− 6

What values of*x*will make this equation true?*x*can equal any number. If you don't understand why, try substituting different numbers in for*x*.Subtract 1 from each side.

3*x*+ 1 = 43

−1 −1

3*x*= 42Divide each side by 3.

*x*= 14Subtract 4

*x*from both sides of the equation. If there is no variable in the final equation, what does that tell you about the final solution?
