Question

What is -39-3x=57+5x

1 Answer

  • This is an equation that needs to be balanced to solve for x.
    -39 -3x = 57 + 5x
    Add 3x to each side to get x on one side.
    -39 = 57 + 8x
    Subtract 57 from both sides to get 8x by itself.
    (Remember when subtracting a negative by a negative, those numbers combine)
    -96 = 8x
    Divide by 8 to get x.
    x = -12
    I hope this helps!
