Take all the x's on one side and the numbers on the other When you take something to the other side the side changes 2x - x = -5-16 x = -21

Do what mathstutor told you. Everything that was said is correct. Step 1. add x to both sides......what did you get?

Then subtract 16 from both sides. What is the result of that?

2x+16=-x-5 Now add x to both sides and get: 3x+16=-5
