Solve: x + 17 = 23
Hey @vegas14 - so do you know how to do algebra?
Or how to start this problem?
x+17 = 23 means that if you add seventeen to a number, you get 23. In other words, suppose you have a few oranges. If you add 17 more oranges to what you already have, you have a total of 23 oranges. So how many oranges did you have in the beginning?
