math 
Ms. Sue,
I showed you how to do this kind of problem. Now it's your turn. I'll be glad to check your answer.

math 
berry,
if its adding do yu subtract nd if its subtract do you add??

math 
Ms. Sue,
When you move a positive to the other side of the equation it becomes a negative, and vice versa. For instance, in your problem, you want to subtract 3x from both sides. You want to subtract 27 from both sides.
4x+27=3x+34 
math 
berry,
ooh ohk so yu subract 3x from both sides right?

math 
Ms. Sue,
Yes.
