Directions: Using the digits 1 to 9, at most one time each, create an equation where x has the smallest (or greatest) possible value.
How does choosing the coefficient or constant affect the variable’s value?
(9/1)(3x + 8) + 4x = 6x + 2
The largest solution I’ve found so far is x = 8:
(4/8)(6x + 2) + 1x = 3x + 9
