What answer are you guys getting for this math equation ? 2(x+19)=171-17(x-19)I keep...getting 24 but in my answer key it says the answer is 6. What exactly am I doing wrong? Can someone solve it step by step ? please. Appreciated.
Your x = 24 is correct. If you then used a calculator, and got x = 6 looks like you didn't get the parentheses right. Or something.
2(x+19)=171-17(x-19)2X+38=171-(17X-323)2X+38=171-17X+32319X=171-38+32319X=456X=456/19=24The answer is X=24
expanding it.... 2x + 38= 171-17x +323(because -17 multiplied by -19 equals +323)transporting 17x to left hand side2x+17x=171+323-38(transporting 38 to right hand side)19x = 456x= 24.your answer key is wrong!!!!!
Odd, but I also got 24. Perhaps there was a typo in the book or you were looking at the wrong question?
