To get the answer for this problem, first get all the x's on one side of the equation.  You do that by subtracting 2x from each side.  That gets you

 

-x+4 = 3 (because x-2x is -x)

 

Then you want to get all the numbers on the other side of the equation.  To do that, subtract 4 from each side.  That gets you

-x = -1 (because 3-4 is -1)

Now to make your x positive, multiply both sides by -1.  That gets you

x = 1

And that's your answer.

x + 4 = 2x + 3

In order to solve this we need to isolate x 

x + 4 = 2x + 3

x + 4 - 2x = 2x + 3 - 2x      (subtract 2x from both sides)

-x + 4 = 3                           

-x + 4 - 4 = 3 - 4                (subtract 4 from both sides)

-x = -1

x = 1 Answer.

x +4=2x +3 In order to solve for x you are going to subtract both sides by 3.

x +4 -3=2x +3 -3 The 3 on the left side will cancel out.

x +1 = 2x Now you are going to add to subtract x on both sides.

x +1 -x = 2x -x The xx will be canceled out on the left side.

1 = x Here is the answer.

x+4=2x+3

Subtract X from both sides 4=x+3

Subtract 3 from both sides to get X alone x=1

Answer =  X=1

jess1999 | Student

x + 4 = 2x + 3

First get the " x " on one side to, so subtract " x " on both sides

By subtracting, your equation should look like

4 = x + 3 now subtract 3 on both sides to get " x " alone

By subtracting, your equation should look like

1 = x which is your answer

zumba96 | Student

x+4=2x+3

Get x on one side

2x-x=4-3

x=1

nisarg | Student

x+4=2x+3

4=x+3   subtract x from both sides

1=x       subtract 3 from both sides

jess1999 | Student

x + 4 = 2x + 3

To solve this equation try to get all the " x " on one side. So, subtract x on both sides.

By subtracting, your should get

4 = x + 3 now subtract 3 on both sides to get " x " alone

By subtracting you should get

1 = x       which is your answer

Yojana_Thapa | Student

x+4=2x+3

(combine the like terms)

(get the x alone in one side)

x+4=2x+3

(subtract x to the other side)

4=x+3

(subtract 3 to get the 3x alone)

1=x

bradyfan17 | Student

X=1 because 2x1+3=5

1+4=5

Here to solve for x, subtract x from each side. In doing this, the x on the left side will cancel out. You are now left with 4=x+3. Now subtract 3 from each side. x=1.
