# 5+x=14

Solve for x

This is done as follows;1. Rearrange the equation so that (x) is on one side by itself  ( x=14-5)Kindly note that when you take a positive value across an equal sign (=) it becomes negative and vice versaTherefore, X = 9so, 5+9=14

x = 14 - 5    = 9

You use the balance method, which means that you have to subtract 5 from both sides of the equation (remember, you try to isolate x) which gives you 14-5, hence x=9.

5+x=14now we will move number 5 to right hand side. x= 14-5x=9This is our final answer

This problem is pretty simple. This is Basic Algebra.Initially, we have,5+x=14We need to solve to find 'x'.We can here, subtract both sides by 5.So,(5+x)-5=14-5Therefore, x=9Tadaaaaaa!Thank You.

Very simple Becca-Just try to isolate 'x'So we subract '5' from both the sides -5+x -5   =   14  -5       x = 9Always try to isolate the variable. This can be done by adding or subtacting something on both the sides. Here the variable was x and we subtracted 5 from both the sides.I hope ur question is clarified now. To learn more amazing concepts like these, join me in a session. Have a great day ahead. Thank you

Here we need to isolate the x variable. This can be done by subtracting 5 from both sides of the equation. By this means, we get the right answer:x = 9.

5+x=14take 5 to RHS(so sign will change)x=14-5x=9

Here x is a number. It might be any number but you're not sure yet what it is and you have to work out what it is.You know that 5 + x = 14 so you are looking for a number you can add to 5 to make 14. To work out the answer you can count on from 5 to 14 and find that the answer is 9 or you could do 14 - 5 is 9.In algebra, the way we would write this is like this5 + x = 14 (then take 5 off both sides to just leave x on the left hand side)5 + x - 5 = 14 - 5x = 9Always make sure that whatever you did to the left hand side, you do to the right hand side as well. Remember too that = means 'has the same value as' and doesn't mean 'answer'.

The symbol X represents a numbertherefore 5 + (unknown number) = 14this means we can find the unknown number by doing 14 - 5 = Xso X=9

X represents a number.We need to separate x so it is on one side of the ‘=‘ by itself. So we take the steps as follows...X = 14–5X= 9

5+x=4soln;when a number cross the equal sign it chnges so when +5 crosses it becomes -5 therefore unkown( x) will be solved this wayx=14-5x=9
