Let the unknown number that we have to find be denoted by the symbol X
Now the question tells us that twice the number“so it is 2x.
Next, it says, when twice the number is increased by 5. This means:
2x + 5 = 29
Now we can solve it for X.
Subtract 5 from both sides of the equation:
2x + 5 – 5 = 29 – 5
2x = 24
Now divide both sides of the equation by 2
2x / 2 = 24 / 2
X = 12
