    You could use the same website for that one too. I know what I'm saying isn't much help but all your answers are there if you plug it in.

    Simplifying 8x + 2(x + -7) = 7x + 3 + -14 Reorder the terms: 8x + 2(-7 + x) = 7x + 3 + -14 8x + (-7 * 2 + x * 2) = 7x + 3 + -14 8x + (-14 + 2x) = 7x + 3 + -14 Reorder the terms: -14 + 8x + 2x = 7x + 3 + -14 Combine like terms: 8x + 2x = 10x -14 + 10x = 7x + 3 + -14 Reorder the terms: -14 + 10x = 3 + -14 + 7x Combine like terms: 3 + -14 = -11 -14 + 10x = -11 + 7x Solving -14 + 10x = -11 + 7x Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-7x' to each side of the equation. -14 + 10x + -7x = -11 + 7x + -7x Combine like terms: 10x + -7x = 3x -14 + 3x = -11 + 7x + -7x Combine like terms: 7x + -7x = 0 -14 + 3x = -11 + 0 -14 + 3x = -11 Add '14' to each side of the equation. -14 + 14 + 3x = -11 + 14 Combine like terms: -14 + 14 = 0 0 + 3x = -11 + 14 3x = -11 + 14 Combine like terms: -11 + 14 = 3 3x = 3 Divide each side by '3'. x = 1 Simplifying x = 1
