    Add like terms. This is anything that contains an x.

    5x - 17 = -x + 7

    +x. . . . . .+x

    ___________

    6x - 17 = 7

    . . .+17 = +17

    6x = 24

    Divide both sides by 6

    x = 24/6 = 4

    x = 4

    I agree with the method and workings

    X is equal to 4

  • 5 months ago

    5x - 17 = -x + 7

    Add 'x' to both sides

    6x - 17 = 7

    Add '17' to both sides

    6x = 24

    Divide both sides by '6'

    x = 4

    5x - 17 = -x + 7

    Add x to both sides

    6x - 17 = 7

    Add 17 to both sides

    6x = 24

    Divide both sides by 6

    x = 4 <–––––––

    5x - 17 = -x + 7

    5x + x - 17 = -x + x + 7

    6x - 17 = 7

    6x - 17 + 17 = 7 + 17

    6x = 24

    6x/6 = 24/6

    x = 4.................ANS

    5x - 17 = -x + 7

    5x - 17 +x = -x + 7 + x

    6x-17 = 7

    solve for x
