    5x + 8 - 12x = -6x + 2x - 3 -7x + 8 = -4x - 3 (isolating the variable) -3x = -11 So not the first one Just keep cancaling out the ones that won't work

    You can do this two different ways. You can plug in 2 into each equation and see which gives you a true statement. 2=2 or 0=0 or 1=1 or something like is a true statement 2=5 or -6=1 is not a true statement or you could solve each of them

    –4x – 6 + x = –2x + x – 10 -4(2)-6+2=-2(2)+2-10 -8-6+2=-4+2-10 -12=-12
