# How do you solve for x in dx-5c=3c?

Mar 22, 2018

$x = \frac{\text{8c}}{d}$

#### Explanation:

Rearrange the equation to solve for $x$:

$\mathrm{dx} - 5 c = 3 c$

$\mathrm{dx} \cancel{\text{- 5c" cancelcolor(red)"+ 5c" = 3c + color(red)"5c}}$

$\mathrm{dx} = 8 c$

$\frac{\cancel{d} x}{\cancel{d}} = \frac{\text{8c}}{d}$

$x = \frac{\text{8c}}{d}$
