    Subtract six from both sides, and then multiply by five on both sides. Divide both sides by five, and then add six to both sides. Subtract six from both sides, and then divide by five on both sides. Divide both sides by five, and then subtract five from both sides.

    first, you want to isolate x so you want to get 5x by itself on one side. To do that, you have to subtract six from both sides. This leaves you with 5x=35. Now, you have to divide both sides by 5 and you get x=7
