ok...this one is an easy one you start with the equation 3x + 17 -5x= 12 - (6x +3) U combine like terms on the left side and distruibute the negative on the right side and get 17-2x=12-6x-3 then u combine like terms on the right side to get 17-2x=9-6x then u subtract the nine from the right side and put it on the left side and you add the 2x to the right side and u get 8=-4x next you divide the -4 from the right side to the left side and u get x=-2
