I had the problem 2.5x + 8 = 1.5x - 12
I first gathered like terms
I ended up having 1x because when carring over 1.5x from the right you sub tract
then I had a 8 I was curious if I keep the twelve on the side then subtract eight from it because thats what I did
and I got 4 then I divided 4 by 1 and got four I concluded x was four but got it wrong
what step did I mess up on?
PLEASE THOUGH NO ANSWER I WOUL JUST LIKE TO BE HINTED ON WHAT TO FIX.
i would have started with moving the right 1.5x to the left then move the left 8 to the right, but i dont know how I could help without giving a answer in someway shape or form
correct me if im wrong
it would be -12 - 8
2.5x - 1.5x what does that give you first of all
i need that currently
No, here is the final step to your answer 1x = -20, I’m pretty sure you can take it from here

Thanks for your mild humor but this isn't a chating area if you would like to chat use private message.
Remeber this: When given a problem with subtraction, DO NOT do subtraction. Whatever is the constant is, change it into a negative. (I may be bad at algebra, but I know that much I could give a small hint)
