Answer:

Solve for x by rearranging the equation.
x = 66

Explanation:

Move the like terms to one side. What you do to one side of the equation is done to the other.

  • 19 + 23 = #-4/11+x#
    Note: to match the fraction, x=1, so x is also #11/11#.
  • 42 = #7/11#
    From here you solve for x by dividing/multiplying by #7/11# to isolate the x.
  • x = 42( #11/7#)
  • x = 66
