isolate the x leave it on one side move the rest to the other whatever you do to one side of an equation also do to the other to maintain the balance simplify

You can combine -7.6 and 9.4 since they do not have variables. They are like terms.

Subtract the signs if they are different and keep the sign of the bigger one?

7. ♪Chibiterasu

If you need to move a negative number to the other side, you add that number on both sides. If you need to move a positive number, you subtract it.

How did you get that?

11. anonymous

I subtracted -7.6 and 9.4 then got 17 after that I had to get the X alone so i subtracted -17 from 17 to get 0 then I did it to the other side because you have to do it to both side and Added -8.4 and -17 and got -25.4

it does not matter if you simplify what you can before the isolation or if you simplify after
