literal equation:
solve for x
ax=bx-c

    ax=bx-c
    ax - bx = -c
    x(a-b) = -c
    x = -c/(a-b) or c/(b-a)

    ok I was getting confused on pulling the x to one side, thank you for explaining out.
    now if I had to put in specific question
    8x=3x-10, would I -3x on both sides
    8x-3x=-10
    5x=-10
    x=-2??

    yes, good job
