Sep 28, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Solve each term on the left side of the equation for $0$:

Solution 1:

$3 x = 0$

$\frac{3 x}{\textcolor{red}{3}} = \frac{0}{\textcolor{red}{3}}$

$\frac{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{3}}} x}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{3}}} = 0$

$x = 0$

Solution 2:

$x - 5 = 0$

$x - 5 + \textcolor{red}{5} = 0 + \textcolor{red}{5}$

$x - 0 = 5$

$x = 5$

The Solutions Are: $x = 0$ and $x = 5$
