How do you solve for x
The first step to solving for x is going to be getting x alone on one side of the equation and everything else on the other side. Remember the rule: what you do to one side of the equation, you must do to the other side. [ That's how the equation stays equal! ...Let's look at a simple equation first. 2 + x = 7. How do we get x by itself? We need to subtract 2 from both sides: 2 - 2 + x = 7 - 2. Now we simplify the equation by doing the simple math: x = 5. See that? We already found the answer!.... Not every equation is going to be quite that simple. Many will have more steps than the first
example. Let's try another one. 5x - 10 = 5. First, add ten to both sides: 5x - 10 + 10 = 5 + 10. That simplifies to 5x = 15. Now that we got ride of the 10, we need to get the 5 away from the x. We do this by dividing both sides by 5" 5x/5 = 15/5. Simplified, that is x = 3. ..If this does not help you , please tell me what problem you are trying to solve and I will help you with it. ]
