Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Its about balancing the equation \[\frac{ x }{ 5 } 7= 2q\] First I want to add 7 to each side \[\frac{ x }{ 5 }=2q+7\] Since 2q and 7 are not like term we cant add them together. so we just express it like that Next I want to multiply both sides by 5 \[x= 5(2q+7)\] Now expand the brackets \[x= 10q+35\] again, 10q and 35 are not like terms, hence we dont add them together but leave it as it os.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Look more into adding like terms, what your doing is adding 7 to 2q which we dont do in mathematics. we can only add two terms if they look EXACTLY the same. for example if it was 7q and 2q = 9q but 7 + 2q = 7 + 2q
