    \[9x + 7 - 2x = 14\] so now: \[9x - 2x = 14 - 7\] Did you understand what i did here?

    to have like terms on the same side of the equation, to make it easier.

    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

    then in order to get x= , you divide the number that is plain, with the number by x, then you'll get the answer!! :) you're welcome.
