in both cases, your aim is to get all the X's on the same side, and everything else on the other side
(subtract x from both sides)
-12x - x = x-x + 26
-13x = 0 + 26
-13x = 26 (divide by -13)
x = -2
You try (2).

1.) -12x = x+26 -12x = x-13x x-13x = x+26 -13x = 26 -13x = -13(-2) x = -2
2.) 3X = 2X-10 3x = 2x+x 2x+x = 2x-10 x = -10 .
