Answer:

#x = 2/(2a-5)#

Explanation:

#2ax - 5x = 2#

To find the variable #x#, we need to make it alone. To do so, first factor out the #x# on the left side of the equation:

#x(2a - 5) = 2#

Now divide both sides by #color(blue)(2a-5)# to get #x# by itself:
#(x(2a-5))/color(blue)(2a-5) = 2/color(blue)(2a-5)#

Therefore,
#x = 2/(2a-5)#

Hope this helps!
