I have a confession ?

I’m 19 and I never learned how I solve for x in any math class. I just never understood it.

    Cool, what is your question?

    Figure out what the value of x must be.

    2+2=x

    What is 2+2?

    It's not a trick question.

    2+2=4

    So x=4

    That's a weird thing to still be worrying about. Maybe it's time to worry about getting a job and moving in to your own apartment. But solving for x? Not so much

    It’s okay. It’s never too late to learn. Here is a basic example. To solve for x, you want your equation to have the form: x=something. 

    In the example below, we have a +2 next to the x. We want the x to be alone on one side of the equation.

    X is just some number like "what number" plus 2 is 6?

    ?? + 2 = 6

    or simply x + 2 =6

    Since we have an equal sign, subtract 2 from both sides

    x = 4

    So we know 4 +2 = 6  easy peasy!
