Answer:
The next step should be ''add 7x''.
Stepbystep explanation:
Given : If the first step in the solution of the equation [tex]87x=5x10[/tex] is "add 10,"
To find : What should the next step be?
Solution :
Equation [tex]87x=5x10[/tex]
Step 1  Add 10 both side,
[tex]87x+10=5x10+10[/tex]
[tex]7x+2=5x[/tex]
Step 2  Add 7x both side,
[tex]7x+2+7x=5x+7x[/tex]
[tex]2=2x[/tex]
Step 3  Divide both side by 2,
[tex]\frac{2}{2}=\frac{2x}{2}[/tex]
[tex]1=x[/tex]
Therefore, The next step should be ''add 7x''.
