4-23.

For each of the equations below, solve for $x$. Show all work and check your solution.

1. $−2+2x=−x+2+x$

Simplify both sides of the equation by combining like terms.

$−2+2x=2$

Solve by getting the variable alone.

$2x=4$

$x=2$

1. $2−3x=x+2$

Use the same strategy to solve part (b).

$x=0$
