**~christina~**, Thursday, August 23, 2007 at 7:03pmwell 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

5X-9-19+22X-38X=-17+17X-9+12

-11x-28 = 17x-14

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?

**DrBob222**, Thursday, August 23, 2007 at 7:09pmAdd like terms. For example, on the left

5X + 22X - 38X = -11X

on the right -17 -9 + 12 = -14

-11X-9-19 = 17X-14

Combine the -9 and -19

-11X-28=17X-14

Now add 28 to both sides

-11X-28+28 = 17X-14+28

-11X=17X+14

Subtract 17X from both sides

-11X-17X=17X-17X+14

-28X=14

Multiply both sides by -1

28X = -14

Divide both sides by 28

28X/28=-14/28

X = -1/2
