#1**+2 **

In this equation, our goal is to isolate the unknown, *x. *Let's see how we would go about doing that

\(3(2-x)=5(2x-7)+2\) | This is the original equation. Distribute the 3 and the 5 into the given parentheses. |

\(6-3x=10x-35+2\) | Combine -35+2. |

\(6-3x=10x-33\) | Add 33 to both sides, |

\(39-3x=10x\) | Add 3x to both sides. |

\(39=13x\) | Divide by 13 to isolate x. |

\(3=x\) | |

There ya go!
