Solving Equations What you are doing is solving equations. Here’s a nice way to set out your work…..

Simple Equations 5x + 17 = 62 (Take 17 from both sides) 5x = 45 (Divide both sides by 5) x = 9 x = 9

Simple Equations 3x + 8 = 29 (Take 8 from both sides) 3x = 21 (Divide both sides by 3) x = 7 x = 7

Simple Equations 6x - 5 = 55 (Add 5 to both sides) 6x = 60 (Divide both sides by 6) x = 10 x = 10
