Step by step:

\(5x - 17 = -x + 7\), then add x to both sides:

\(6x-17=7\), add 17 to both sides:

\(6x=24\), divide both sides by 6:

\(x=\boxed{4}\)

#3**0 **

**5x - 17 = -x + 7**

separate numbers and variables...or add **x** to both sides**5x + x = 7 + 17 6x = 24**

divide both sides by

x = 24/6

x = \(\left [ 4\right ]\)
