Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry. To solve for x, you must first isolate the term containing the x. So, you must get rid of the 5 on the left hand side first. You do that by adding 5 to both sides of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you eliminate the fraction first, you will eventually get to the correct answer, but the math will be harder.
