So, for this one, it is 2x-14=3x+6

Can someone please explain to me how they would solve this problem?

I think you would add 14 to the 6, but I'm not sure..

subtract 2x from each side.

subtract 6 from each side

OH! So 2x-3x is -1,

-1x-14+6

then subtract 6 from the fourteen

and get -1x= 8

correct?

HuH?

subtract 2x from each side

2x-2x-14=3x-2x+6 or

-14=x+6

subtract six from each side

-14-6=x+6-6

-20=x
