Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

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

Solution 1:

#3x = 0#

#(3x)/color(red)(3) = 0/color(red)(3)#

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3)))x)/cancel(color(red)(3)) = 0#

#x = 0#

Solution 2:

#x - 5 = 0#

#x - 5 + color(red)(5) = 0 + color(red)(5)#

#x - 0 = 5#

#x = 5#

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