X/2+7=9

Sorry I'm a slow learner (that's x over 2)

Report as

X=4

4/2 +7 = 9.

4 divided by 2 equals 2.

2+7 = 9

Report as
I agree!
Report as
So.......I'm an ENGLISH MAJOR ...what happened folks ? :P
Report as

X=11

Report as
Nope it's 4!
Report as
...No it's one
Plug in the one
Report as
Actually, both. 1 divided by two is 2, and 4 divided by 2 is 2.
Report as
1 divided by 2 is .5 1/2 + 7 = 7.5 not 9
Report as
No it isn't.
X/2+7=9
You multiply both sides by 2.
Which makes it X+7=18.
Subtract 7 from both sides.
Which makes it X=11

Honey I know my algebra.

Report as
11/2 = 5.5

5.5 + 7 = 12.5 not 9

You may know algebra but you don't know math.

Report as
Try it this way 2x7 = 14 2x9 = 18 18-14 = 4
Report as
I know math! I'm not a dummy!
Report as
And you do not multiply 7 by 2!! You multiply 9 and x/2 by2!!
Report as
Well then how come when you plug 11 into the formula the answer is WRONG.

11 divided by 2 equals 5.5

5.5 plus 7 equals 12.5

12.5 DOES NOT equal 9.
?????
Report as
You multiply both ( x/2 and 9) by 2
Gives you X+7=18
Obviously you do 18-7
Give you 11. That's where the eleven comes in at!
Report as
No it doesn't look at the different solutions.

11/2 + 7 = 9

11 divided by 2 = 5.5 5.5 =7 equals 12.5 12.5 does not = 9

4/2 + 7 = 9

4 divided by 2 = 2 2 + 7 = 9. 9=9
Report as
Where did you get freaking 94 from?!?! My dad did the problem and said it was eleven and my dad is a carpenter so he is Amazin at math! Get over it your wrong!!
Report as
I was a carpenter and a teacher. Where do you see 94?

Look at the solutions

4/2 = 2

2+7 = 9

9=9

11/2 = 5.5

5.5 + 7 = 12.5

12.5 does not equal 9
Report as
Plug in 11 for X
11/2+7=9
You multiply both sides by 2
Gets rid of the fraction.
Then it's 11+7=18
18=18

I don't need a video when I got my brain that works perfectly.
You follow the steps of PEMDAS
Report as
Why are you the only one that still thinks it's 11?

I just had the website do the equation. x = 4.

Go to the website and enter the equation and solve for x.

The computer and the rest are wrong but you are right. NO WAY.

if you remove the fraction and multiply both sides by 2 then you get

2 x 7 = 14
2 x 9 = 18

18-14 = 4.

If you can't get that then .............
Report as
You multiply to get the fraction away!
Obviously the opposite of division is multiplication. You multiply so the fraction is removed!
Report as
Where are you getting 2*7 at?
Report as
so you remove the fraction and multiply both sides by 2

2 x 7 = 14
2 x 9 = 18

18-14 = 4.

Like I said go to the website and TRY to get 11.
Report as
Whatever! Yu think its 4 but I say 11. It could go either way!!!

Report as

X=4

Report as
nope! sorry.
Report as
oh wait. I just read other people's. Am I wrong. humm. Thats embarresing.....
Report as
4 divided by 2 equals 2. Then 2 plus 7 equals 9
Report as

x/2+7=9
-7 -7
x/2 2
/ /
2 2
x = 1

Because 1/2+7=9
Just plug in one, and you get the answer.

You don't do subtraction before addinn

A saying my old math teacher said. The one works for it. Just plug the one in for the x, and you get nine. Try it.
Report as
1/2 = .5 .5 +7 = 7.5 not 9
Report as
IT IS NT 1
Report as
No it isn't it is 4.
Report as
It's not four
Report as
Yes it is plug 4 into the formula.

4 divided by 2 equals 2. 2 plus 7 equals 9 . 9=9
Report as

X=4

Report as

x=11

Report as
Thank you!!
Report as

x/2+7=9
(So you wanna get rid of the fraction. But x is on it. But x/2 is really x divided by 2. So to cancel out division. Use multiplication. Multiply 2 on both sides and 2 will leave the equation)
x/2(2)+7=9(2)
****************
x+7=18
(Next get x by itself by getting rid of 7. To cancel out addition. subtraction. So subtract 7 on both sides)
x+7(-7)=18(-7)
*****************
x=11

YEA! There it is!!!

Report as
Wouldn't you get rid of the addition first?
Report as
Wrong. 11/2 = 5.5

5.5 + 7 = 12.5 not 9
Report as
Ummm. Im trying to remember. I think its get division first. But im not sure. There was an acronime for this!! What is it!!!!

AHHHH! You smart sir!! lets plug in 4 like others are saying.

Whoops! I had to reread the question. Subtract 7 from each side and then multiply each side by 2. MrREC has it right.x=4.
