9x+ 7  2x = 14 okay so first you are trying to solve for x, so in order to make it easier to do that, you'll want to make sure that the numbers with the x are on the same side of the equation, vise versa ( you'll want to make sure that the plain numbers are on the opposite side ) . Which means that

like terms thing I was saying. Then you'll solve both sides of the equation so you only have 1 number on each side
