Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you want to isolate the x you have minus 16 on the side with the x to undo the minus you add

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3x16=36 add 16 to both sides x16+16=36+16 we did this because we knew 16+16=0 so you would end up with x+0=36+16 which will allow us to just write x instead of x+0 on that left hand side x=36+16
