You must help them understand how Earthlings use math. 1. Two Martians, Splott and Fizzle, have solved the equation 2x + 4 = –3x + 14. Examine the work of Splott and Fizzle.

Fizzles work: Right Or Wrong: 2x + 4 = –3x + 14 2x + 4 – 2x = –3x + 14 – 2x RIGHT 4 = 14 – 5x RIGHT 4 – 14 = 14 – 5x – 14 RIGHT –12 = –5x RIGHT
–12 + 5 = –5x + 5 WRONG: Fizzle should have divided by -5 on both sides to make x equal 2.4
