Question:8th Grade Algebra
posted by Joy .
How do you get a variable term from one side of an equation onto the other side?
Can I get an example please?

Subtract it from both sides.
It is the same thing as changing the sign and moving it to the other side. 
Example: 3x+7=9x15
So your going to subtract 3x from both sides. You should end up with 7=6x15. So now your giong to add 15 to both sides. You should get 22=6x.
Hope that helps!! :)
