3-34.

Solve each equation. Show the check to prove your answer is correct. Homework Help ✎

1. $3x+5−x=x−3$

• Start by combining like terms

• 2x + 5 = x − 3

• Move x to one side by subtracting x from both sides.

• 2x + 5 − x = x − 3 − x

• x + 5 = −3

• Isolate x by subtracting 5 from each side.

• x + 5 − 5 = −3 − 5

1. $5x−(x+1)=5−2x$
