4-23.

For each of the equations below, solve for

*x*. Show all work and check your solution. Homework Help ✎−2 + 2

*x*= −*x +*2 +*x*2 − 3

*x*=*x +*2

Simplify both sides of the equation by combining like terms.

−2 + 2*x* = 2

Solve by getting the variable alone.

2*x* = 4

*x* = 2

Use the same strategy to solve part (b).

*x* = 0
