-1, but im not sure how.

-7 + 5x = 10x - 2

Since we need to get the unknowns on one side and the knowns on the other side and change their signs:

5x - 10x = 7 - 2

-5x = 5

x = -1

wait how did you what number did you subtract or add from where? to get that? to get 5x-10x=7-2?

is this right??

-7=5x=10x-2

-7+5X-10X=10X-10X-2

-7+-5=-2

-7+7-5X=-2+7

-5X=5 X=-1

Except for typing = instead of + after the -7 in the first line,

and

-7+-5=-2 instead of -7 -5x = -2 in the third line,

the rest is OK.

You got the right answer but the intermediate steps contain errors that may just be sloppy typing
