What is 20x+3=5 what is x.
What is 4-x=9 what is x.

• Math -

Simple. Just get x to stand alone.

20x=5-3 Subtract 3 from both sides.
20x=2
x=2/20 Divide 20 on both sides.
x=1/10 Simplify.

I'll show you how to do these problems so that you'll learn how to do the rest of your problems

20x+3=5
Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation.

20x = 2
Divide both sides by 20

x = 2/20
x = 1/10
________________________________

4-x=9

5 = 9 + x

Subtract 9 from both sides.
4-9 = x
-5 = x
