Yes, I'm dumb. Help pls 😁

Out of curiosity, are you currently taking math courses, or are you studying math on your own?  I'm asking you this, because you have posted quite a bit in the math section of AF and it seems that you are interested in math.

That's pretty cool, Pool.  What are you studying now? Is there a specific math subject that you'd eventually like to learn?

Not really focusing on a particular subject just doing basic stuff that help with problem solving skills I guess but yeah hopefully I'll get far enough to try on more complex stuffs but for the moment I'm going slow and steady 😊

RE: Solve this simple equation (help pls)
x = 15

first divide (2x)/2 = 1
3x+ x = 60
add that 1 to 3x
4x = 60
divide both sides by 4
4x/4 = 60/4
simplify
x=15
