x = 7
Stepbystep explanation:
Eleven more than five times a number is equal to the difference between −38 and twice the number.
let x represent the number.
11 + 5x = 38  2x
7x +11 = 38.............add 2x to both sides
7x = 49................... subtract 11 from both sides
x = 7........................divide both sides by 7
