a. b. Step-by-step explanation:

You need to solve for the variable “x” in each equation. Then:

a. You need to add 5 to both sides of the equation: Now you need to divide both sides of the equation by 4, getting: b. You need to subtract 35 from both sides of the equation:  Now you need to divide both sides of the equation by 3, getting: a: 5.25 b: -0.33

Step-by-step explanation:

a:

4x – 5 = 16

isolate the variable. this is done by putting only the variable on the left side and the numbers on the right side. when moving the 5 to the right side, it is counted as a -5 because of the minus in front. when moving it, be sure to change from – to + and vice versa.

4x = 16 + 5

4x = 21

x = 21/4

x = 5.25

b:

same process

35 + 3x – 11 = 23

move the 35 to the right, changing it to a -35

3x – 11 = 23 – 35

move the -11

3x = 23 – 35 + 11

3x = -12 + 11

3x = -1

x = -1/3

x = -0.33
