Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Start by adding 3 to 8. Then subtract 7 from the left side of the equation and then the right.. sooo.... 3x9x+7=5 3x9x=12 Then factor out a three from the x.. 3(x3x)=12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ankur, stop giving people solutions they could just get directly from wolframalpha, etc. They want help, not answers. Nobody cares if you know how to do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think you need to factor out a 3 so much as you just need to combine your x's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you simply divide 2 to both sides of the equation, because as polpak said, you do it to both sides of the equation :)
