Solving for x
These types of problems are used to solve for x and find a more simplified expression with only one value for x.
Distribute the 2 on the left side of the equation to inside of the parentheses.
2x + 12= 9x +7
Bring the 12 over to the right side of the equation by subtraction.
2x= 9x -5
Combine the 2x and the 9x to form one expression
0= 7x – 5
Add the 5 over to the other side to get the 7x equal to a value.
Simplify the x by dividing by 7
