How do you solve #7b-10+31=9b#? Algebra Linear Equations Two-Step Equations and Properties of Equality 1 Answer X D. · Stefan V. Mar 14, 2018 #21/2# or #10.5# in decimal form. Explanation: Start by subtracting the variables, so #9b-7b=2b#. After that, you want to add #31+(-10)=21# So 21 = 2b# Then divide both sides by #2# to get #21/2 = b# or #b = 10.5# Answer link Related questions How do you solve two step equations?
