Answer:

#x=2#

Explanation:

First, get #x# on a side by itself.
To do this, divide both sides by 5.

#(x/5)/5 = 10/5#

This cancels out the 5's on the left side, leaving you with

#x =10/5#.

Since #10/5 = 2# ,

#x=2#

Answer:

#x=50#

Explanation:

We want to solve for #x#, and right now it is being divided. To isolate it, we do the inverse operation, which, in this case, is multiplication.

We can multiply both sides by #5# to get:

#x=5*10#, which can be simplified as:

#x=50#
