1. Example:/ 2(6-x) = 3(2x + 13)

I expanded it...
12-2x = 6x +39
+2x +2x
= 12 = 8x +39
-12 -12
8x = 27
27/8 = x= 3.375

Is this correct?

Because you moved the 8x to the other side so it becomes negative.

Hope that helps
3. nope you are right, (the whole multiply to divide thing) it doesnt become - ??
