In this video, we will be learning how to solve for x (or another variable) in complex algebraic equations where x (or another variable) is present on both sides using inverse operations.
Distribute the 2 to the x and 5
Simplify the right side using addition
Isolate the variable by subtracting 2x from both sides
Isolate the variable by adding 7 to both sides
Divide by 3 on both sides
