  1. -7q + 2 = 11q - 8q
    -7q + 2 = 3q
    -7q + 7q = 2 = 3q + 7q
    2 = 10q
    divide both sides by 10 and reduce

    8(j - 3) = 4j + 9j - 14
    8j - 24 = 13j - 14
    8j - 24 + 14 = 13j - 14 + 14
    8j - 10 = 13j
    8j - 8j - 10 = 13j - 8j
    -10 = 5j
    divide both sides by 5 and reduce to solve for j
