Q:
# Steps for solving 6x - 18 = 54 are shown.Explain how Step 1 helps solve the equation.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: x = 12Step 1 helps solve the equation, for it helps isolate the x, which is what you are solving for.Step-by-step explanation:Isolate the variable x. Note the equal sign, what you do to one side, you do to the other. Do the opposite of PEMDAS:Step 1: Add 18 to both sides. 6x - 18 (+18) = 54 (+18)6x = 54 + 186x = 72Step 2: Divide 6 from both sides: (6x)/6 = (72)/6x = 72/6x = 12x = 12 is your answer.~
