2-125.

While Jenna was solving the equation 150

*x*+ 300 = 600, she wondered if she could first change the equation to*x*+ 2 = 4. What do you think? Homework Help ✎Solve both equations and verify that they have the same solution.

What did Jenna do to the equation 150

*x*+ 300 = 600 to change it to*x*+ 2 = 4?In the same way, rewrite 60

*t*− 120 = 300.

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