2-125.
  1. While Jenna was solving the equation 150x + 300 = 600, she wondered if she could first change the equation to x + 2 = 4. What do you think? Homework Help ✎

    1. Solve both equations and verify that they have the same solution.

    2. What did Jenna do to the equation 150x + 300 = 600 to change it to x + 2 = 4?

    3. In the same way, rewrite 60t − 120 = 300.

Are the expressions on both sides of the equation divisible by 150?
