What strategies can be used to solve and equation algebraically?
Use 5x - 12 = 4 - 3x and 3/4x + 10 = 7 as an example.
Please describe each strategy for me, I really don't know how to explain it and my math homework is driving me crazy!!

Step 1: Group variables on one side, constants on the other.
Step 2: "Normalize" variables (in other words, multiply both sides by a factor such that the coefficient of the variable becomes 1).
Example:
Step 1:
Step 2:
