Okay, so here is your equation: 5x+14-2x=9-(4x+2) Add the ''like terms'' up, and you'll get: 5x+(-2x)=3x So, 3x+14=9-(4x+2) Distribute the negative, 9-4x-2 Then: 3x+14=9-4x-2 Add like terms for the other side, 3x+14=7-4x Add 4x to both sides, 7x+14=7 Minus 14 to both sides, 7x=-7 Divide 7 to both sides, x=-1
