Be sure to follow the steps for solving equations given in the lesson. The steps are: 1- Distribute on each side of the equation. 2- Collect like terms on each side of the equation. 3- Get all the variables on one side of the equation by doing the opposite math operation. 4- Solve for the variable. 8x - 1 = -4x + 23 x = 2. 5x + 3 = 2x + 15 x = 3. 5x + 2 = x - 6 x = 4. 6x - 8 + 2x - 5 = 7 - 2x x = 5. 9(x + 2) = 3(x - 2) x = 6. 5(x + 4) = 7(x - 2) x = 7. 7(5x - 2) = 6(6x - 1) x = 8. 3(x - 6) + 2 = 4(x + 2) - 21 x = 9. -2x - 18 = 6(1
