 Question 564936: Hello, First of all thank you for this site! My question is 1/3(4z-3)=4x-5. I have the answer as z=3x-3 from the book, but I don't know why. I can do distributive, and communitive property to solve for a variable in an equation with out an equal sign in the middle like:5(y+6)-4(1-y) is 9y+26, but I don't know what to do when there is an equal sign in the equation; unless it's something like solve for x: 4x+12=4+24. 4x=4+12 4x=16 x=4.
