What number when increased by 1 and doubled and then increased by 5 has a result that is the same as when the number is increased by 1?

let x be the number, then: (x + 1) × 2 + 5 = x + 1 → 2x + 2 + 5 = x + 1 → 2x + 7 = x + 1 → 2x - x = 1 - 7 → x = -6 The number is -6. Checking: -6 +1 = -5; 5 × 2 = -10; -10 + 5 = -5 which is the same as -6 + 1 = -5.
