# Solve for x. 5x = 4 +x 2/3x = 1/2 3x - 2x + 4 = 15/3 4x + 7 = 2x + 17 .5x = 10

1.  5(x) - [4 + x] = ?        4(x - 1)        4 = ?           x - 1 = ?             Now let's add ( + ) to your sides                         Answer: x = 1  2.  $\frac{2}{3} (x) - \frac{1}{2}$ = ?       $\frac{1}{2}$      $\frac{2}{3} (x) - \frac{1}{2}$ = ?       $\frac{2}{3}$     L denominator = 3     R denominator = 2    Put them together it would be 6     $\frac{4(x) - 3}{6 }$ = ?     4(x) - 3 = ?    Let's add 3 from your sides   Repeat the process but let's divide by 4    4(x) = 3   Answer   x = $\frac{3}{4}$ 3. 3(x) - 2(x) + 4 - $\frac{15}{3}$ = ?     $\frac{5}{1}$    x + 4 - 5 = ?    x - 1  = 0  Now, let add the number 1 from each sides    Answer: x = 1  4.  4(x) + 7 - 2(x) +  17 = ?      2(x - 5)     2 = ?     x - 5 = 0    Replace the subtraction symbol and make it a addition symbol ( but by 5)   Answer: x = 5  5.    .5(x) - 10 = ?         $\frac{1}{2}$        $\frac{1}{2} (x) - 10$ = ?        $\frac{10(2) }{2}$        $\frac{x - 20}{2}$         x - 20 =  0  Add the number 20 to each of your sides after replacing the subtraction symbol to a addition symbol      Answer: x = 20
