# How do you solve 2x-3x=11?

Mar 9, 2018

$x = - 11$

#### Explanation:

$2 x - 3 x = - 1 x$

So

$- 1 x = 11$

Divide by $- 1$ on both sides

$x = - 11$

$x = - 11$

#### Explanation:

1) Subtract $3 x$ from $2 x$:

$2 x - 3 x = 11$

$- x = 11$

This can be rewritten as:

$\left(- 1\right) \left(x\right) = 11$

2) Multiply both sides by $- 1$, to change the L.H.S to $x$:

$- 1 \cdot - 1 \left(x\right) = - 1 \left(11\right)$

$\implies 1 \left(x\right) = - 11$

$\implies x = - 11$

Thus, solved.
