−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.

-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
