Answer:

#59=x+90#

Transposition of #90# to the other side of the equation!

#x=59-90#

Subtract the values!

#x= -31#

Voila!

If you want to double check-

#59=(-31+90)#

#59=59#

Tadaa!

Explanation:

Due to the rules of Linear equations, while the number 90 is transposed to the other side of the equation, it changes its value from #+# to #-# !
