Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Simplifying 3x + 7 = 5x + 19 Reorder the terms: 7 + 3x = 5x + 19 Reorder the terms: 7 + 3x = 19 + 5x Solving 7 + 3x = 19 + 5x Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '5x' to each side of the equation. 7 + 3x + 5x = 19 + 5x + 5x Combine like terms: 3x + 5x = 2x 7 + 2x = 19 + 5x + 5x Combine like terms: 5x + 5x = 0 7 + 2x = 19 + 0 7 + 2x = 19 Add '7' to each side of the equation. 7 + 7 + 2x = 19 + 7 Combine like terms: 7 + 7 = 0 0 + 2x = 19 + 7 2x = 19 + 7 Combine like terms: 19 + 7 = 26 2x = 26 Divide each side by '2'. x = 13 Simplifying x = 13
