−2+2x=−2+7 Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation. −2+2x=−2+7 2x−2=(−2+7)(Combine Like Terms) 2x−2=5 2x−2=5 Step 2: Add 2 to both sides. 2x−2+2=5+2 2x=7 Step 3: Divide both sides by 2. 2x 2 = 7 2 x= 7 2

-2 + 2x =x + 2 + 7 First combine like terms -2+2x=x+9 Then get the variable x on to one side -2+2x=x+9 -x -x ---------------- -2+x=9 Then get x by its self -2+x=9 +2 +2 ------------ x=11
