How do I put these into equations?

Five times the difference of a number and two is seven more than that number.

Twice a number decreased by two is equivalent to than number increased by five.
I am so lost

  1. x = your number(s)

    Five times the difference of a number and two
    is seven more than that number mean:

    5 ( x - 2 ) = 7 + x

    Twice a number decreased by two is equivalent
    to than number increased by five mean:

    2 ( x - 2 ) = x + 5

    Try to solve this two equations.

  2. "Twice a number decreased by two is equivalent
    to that number increased by five"

    my interpretation instead of what Bosnian had:
    2x - 2 = x + 5
