Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so it is something like \[x+5=9\]i guess you are supposed to the the "opposite" of \(5\) is \(5\) so we can solve via \[x+55=95\\ x=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or if you have \[x4=7\] then the "opposite" of \(4\) is \(4\) so \[x4+4=7+4\\ x=11\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1maybe include \[2x=10\] the "opposite" of multiplying by 2 is dividing by 2, so \[2x=10\\ \frac{2x}{2}=\frac{10}{2}\\ x=5\]
