Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Simplify both sides of the equation. 7x+14+3=−5x+15−1 Simplify 7x+14+3=−5x+15−1 7x+14+3=−5x+15+−1 (7x)+(14+3)=(−5x)+(15+−1)(Combine Like Terms) 7x+17=−5x+14 7x+17=−5x+14 Add 5x to both sides. 7x+17+5x=−5x+14+5x 12x+17=14 Subtract 17 from both sides. 12x+17−17=14−17 12x=−3 Divide both sides by 12.
