Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplifying 2x + 5 = 27 Reorder the terms: 5 + 2x = 27 Solving 5 + 2x = 27 Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '5' to each side of the equation. 5 + 5 + 2x = 27 + 5 Combine like terms: 5 + 5 = 0 0 + 2x = 27 + 5 2x = 27 + 5 Combine like terms: 27 + 5 = 22 2x = 22 Divide each side by '2'
