    if you add something to each side of an equation does anything really change, besides the way the equation looks?

    7x=7 if x=1 then this equation is true, correct? if we add 3 to each side 7x+3=10 and x is still 1, the equation is still true just looks different

    we want to get x by itself and positive the easiest way to do that is to add x to each side of the equation. y - x = 0 y - x + x = 0 + x

    y=x or x=y doesn't matter how you write it

    Now that we know this. we can substitute the x's for a y. This is called the substitution method. 3(y) + 2y = -25 Now solve for y
