# How do you solve #10+ 5x = 110#?

##### 4 Answers

#### Explanation:

First subtract 10 from both sides.

Then, divide both sides by 5

The trick is to get x by itself by moving the other numbers around... That way you find that x=20.

#### Explanation:

In order to get our solution, we will work this in two steps:

- Move all terms, other than x and its coefficient, to the right-hand side
- Divide both sides by x's coefficient to get x alone

Step 1:

For this, we will subtract 10 from both sides. This will remove the 10 from the left hand side, and remove the same amount from the right hand side.

Step 2:

Now that we've moved everything else to the right hand side, we can divide both sides by x's coefficient. In this case, we will divide by 5:

Now we solve the division and get our answer:

#### Explanation:

Isolate the

Subtract 10 from both sides:

Now divide by
