# How do you solve 10x - 3= 35?

May 27, 2018

$x = \setminus \frac{38}{10} = \setminus \frac{19}{5} = 3.8$

#### Explanation:

Property of Equality:
Adding a number to both sides of a equation will not change the equality:
$10 x - 3 + 3 = 35 + 3$
$10 x = 38$

Multiplying a number to both sides of a equation will also not change the equality:
$10 x \cdot \setminus \frac{1}{10} = 38 \cdot \setminus \frac{1}{10}$
$x = 38 \cdot \setminus \frac{1}{10}$
$x = \setminus \frac{38}{10} = \setminus \frac{19}{5} = 3.8$
