Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Amie on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 11:46am.

5x -3 = 11 + 12x

combine like figures
add 3 to both sides to remove the 3

5x= 14+ 12x

Now I get confused. If I remove the 12x I have to subtract 12x from 5x which gives me an answer of -7x=14 would the correct answer thus be x= -2?
