3
when a number sits next to a variable with nothing in between the two, the operation is multiplication. EX: 2x=16 Multiplication

4
Number to move: the “2” 2x = 16 Operation being used: “x” Opposite of “x”: “ ” Example: x = 8 2 2

5
Divide each side by negative 3 x = -7 -3x = 21 -3

6
Examples

7
