Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to find what x is equal to, so in this case you would do this: 8 + x = 13 + 2x x x 8 = 13 + x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You now need to get x by itself, so what would you do to get that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All right, it's fine. Everyone always gets lost, but that's how they learn :) The equation is 8 + x = 13 + 2x and you need to get the "x" by itself so it would equal a number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get "x" by itself, you need to subtract the "x" from the side with the least amount of x's. That would get you "x" alone on the right side. Also, if you didn't know as a tip, x = 1x; they're the same thing.
