3. T+T + 12 = 38
2T +12 = 38
38-12 = 26
2T = 26
2/26 = 13
T = 13

7. Step One
Toy Trucks = x
Toy Cars = x+12 (because there are 12 more toy cars than toy trucks in a toy box)
Total total of toy cars and trucks = 38

Step Two
equation = x + x + 12 = 38
2x + 12 = 38

Step Three
Keep 2x as it is but use 12 to - (minus) from +12 and 38
Which will look like this
2x + 12 = 38
-12 -12
The 12 after 2x automatically get canceled out because they are same numbers.
What remains is 2x = 26 (just to show you calculation 38-12 =26)

Step three
x = 26
----- (divide)
