# Math Help - Solve for X

1. ## Solve for X

ex - fx = g + hx - k

I am supposed to solve for X. This one is past my skill level, what can you guys come up with? Thanks!

2. ## Re: Solve for X

$ex - fx = g + hx - k$

$ex - fx - hx = g - k$

$x(\cdots)=g-k$

Have a go from here - finish the factoring in line #3 and see if you can finish.

3. ## Re: Solve for X

x ( e - f - h ) = g - k

divide both sides by ( e - f - h )

x = ( g - k ) / ( e - f - h )

Thanks, I think I understand now.
