Put the 7x on the other side

3x-7x +24 =0

Now put the 24 on the other side.

-4x =-24

Since they're both negative on both sides of the equation we can make them positive (multiply by -1)

4x =24

Now divide both sides by 4 to get the value of x

X = 6

3x + 24 = 7x

Subtract both sides with 3x.

24 = 7x - 3x

Simplifying, we get

24 = 4x

Solving for x, we divide both sides by 4.

So, x = 6. :)

24= 7x -3x

24=4x

24/4=x

6=x

The 'modern way' would be to balance each side:

3x-3x+24=7x-3x

24=4x

24/4=4x/4

6=x

You -3x from both sides of the equation, giving 24=4x

24/4 gives you the value of X which is 6.

So, X=6.
