How do you solve #2x+7= x-3#?

1 Answer

Answer:

x = #-4#

Explanation:

Here's how you solve, starting with your equation:
#2##x# + #7# #=# #x# #-# #3#

First, subtract "#x#" because it is the lowest variable. You want to isolate #x#. You should now have:

#x# #+# #7# #=# #3#

Now, subtract #7# on both sides to continue isolating #x#. Therefore:

#x# #=# #-4#
