Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would start by subtracting \(x\) from both sides, to put all the terms with \(x\) on the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0set them side by side like this: x8=8x71 subtract 8 on both sides and add 8 to both sides now you should get 7x=63
