 07-29-2007 #3 Carley S Guest   Posts: n/a 1-4x=9-2x1) 1=9+2x2) -8=2x3) -4=xIn step one, move the variables to one side of the equation. In step two, move 9 to the other side, leaving 2x by itself.And finally, in step 3, divide both sides by 2 and get the solution of -4.I think this is right, not sure though. Hope this helped!
