Solve for x. Check answer. A)-12+x=50

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

-12+x=50

To solve we need to get x by itself. Therefore add 12 to both sides:

+12 -12 +x = 50 +12

`therefore x= 62`

To check, substitute this value into the original equation:

-12 + (62) = 50

50 = 50

`therefore` x=62 is correct.
