    Simplifying 2x + 4y = 8 Solving 2x + 4y = 8 Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-4y' to each side of the equation. 2x + 4y + -4y = 8 + -4y Combine like terms: 4y + -4y = 0 2x + 0 = 8 + -4y 2x = 8 + -4y Divide each side by '2'. x = 4 + -2y Simplifying x = 4 + -2y

    whatever you do to one side of the equation also do to the other to keep the balance

    when solving for any variable in any equation, gather all the terms with that variable to one side and simplify then divide each side by the coefficient of the variable
