If you had this equation, how would you move the 7

to the other side of the equation?

You would subtract it...... wouldn’t you?

This equation is probably different from other equations you have solved.

What makes it different? It is different because it has an x on each side.

How would you move the x from the right side to the left?

You would move the x exactly the same way you would move the 7.

You would subtract it...... wouldn’t you?

Now when you simplify...

... the equation becomes the type of equation

... the equation becomes the type of equation

If you want to solve equations correctly (and you do)(Don’t you?) you will get in the habit of checking solutions.

Good solution! Checking the solution:
