7x-5x=8 2x=8 x=4

The 7x and the 5x are like terms. This means that you can add them up. Think about it, 7 x's plus 5x's equals 12x's. From there, you can divide 12 from both sides of the equation, and you will get that x = 2.

5x+2x-3y+y = (5+2)x+(-3+1)y = 7x - 2y

7x + 12 = 5x + 2 Subtract '12' from both sides Hence 7x = 5x -10 Subtract '5x' from both sides. 2x = -10 Divide both sides by '2' Hence x = -5 .

2x plus 5x simplified is 7x.

1 - 5x + 7x is an expression, not an equation (no equals sign), so you cannot solve for x. You can, however simplify (combine like terms) and get 1 + 2x.

7x = 5+5x 7x-5x = 5 2x = 5 x = 2.5

x=6
