Try the easiest step in isolating x and simplifying the equation. By adding 7 to both sides of the equation, it gets rid of -7 on the left side of the equation. What property is that called?

Nope, try again. Hint: It's *adding* 7.

Sarah decides to take her six year old son to the circus. The price for the child's ticket is 4.75 dollars less than the price for the adult's ticket. If you represent the price for the child's ticket using the variable "x," how would you write the algebraic expression for the adult's ticket price? 4.75x x + 4.75 x over 4.75 x4.75
