# 16x + 10 - 32 = 35 -10x - 5

do the same thing on both sides all the time to try and isolate x.16x + 10 - 32 = 35 -10x - 5

16x + 10 - 32 + 5= 35 -10x - 5 +5

16x + 10 - 32 + 5= 35 -10x

16x + 10 - 32 + 5 +10x = 35 -10x +10x

16x + 10 - 32 + 5 +10x = 35

16x + 10 -10 - 32 + 5 +10x = 35 -10

16x - 32 + 5 + 10x = 25

16x - 32 + 32 + 5 + 10x = 25 + 32

16x + 5 + 10x = 57

16x + 5 - 5 + 10x = 57 - 5

16x + 10x = 52

26x = 52

26x / 26 = 52 / 26

x = 2
