Sorry for being away... you can blame my absence on this:
2(2x-4) - 3(4x-1) = 2(x+3)
I had my class yesterday and I know how to do this but my mind was a blank... which is not really all that unusual. I get that way when I am under pressure. Good thing I am not a 911 dispatcher:)
My son was sitting next to me making sure that I was doing it the right way and when I froze he said " looks like we need to work on your memorization skills Missy" WTF? That came from my 17 year old. I didn't know whether to be pissed or proud of him at that point so I just gave him a blank stare. Yeah... that always works.
