I need help with solving this equation
and the steps on how to do it?
5X919+22X38X=17+17X9+12

well for this question the whole goal is to get all the x's on one side and all the numbers on the other side.
1st combine all like terms on the same sides
5X919+22X38X=17+17X9+12
11x28 = 17x14
then go and bring the x's over to one side and the numbers over to the other side(subtract or add)
28x= 14
then divide to get x
x= 14/(28)
so what do you get?

Add like terms. For example, on the left
5X + 22X  38X = 11X
on the right 17 9 + 12 = 14
11X919 = 17X14
Combine the 9 and 19
11X28=17X14
Now add 28 to both sides
11X28+28 = 17X14+28
11X=17X+14
Subtract 17X from both sides
11X17X=17X17X+14
28X=14
Multiply both sides by 1
28X = 14
Divide both sides by 28
28X/28=14/28
X = 1/2
